Sometimes I just amaze myself, yes, not that I am very good at anything at all really, but how I get things done at all is really interesting. It seems that every single time that I try to do anything, anything at all, I get interrupted. I am not talking about e-mails and stuff online that grabs my attention and makes my thoughts go elsewhere than the tasks I am currently doing.
What I am talking about is my kids. I have two lovely kids, a girl at almost four years and a son at about sixteen months. And I know, I shouldn’t be blaming the kids, and I am really not. But what I have been doing lately is getting up one hour earlier every single day, just to get some tasks done. Because working / blogging at home when my family is awake, well that’s not going to happen. I have tried for a while, and if I am not interrupted, there are so much noise that I can barely hair myself think (I am not sure if I can ever hear myself think).
I bet that many people do have the same “problems” as I do. It would be both fun and interesting to write a book / ebook about my creative job experience at home with kids. I have tried many different things and just closing the door to “the office” does not work at all. But if you take your laptop (got to have a laptop) and go to the bathrom and tell your family that you are going to the toilet, then you will probably have about 10 minutes by yourself. So, if you can write a post in ten minutes or there are other work related things you can do in ten minutes, just pretend to go to the toilet and everything will be set for you. Even though it might be a little uncomfortable writing while sitting on the toilet ðŸ™‚
… and the book should be about how to get work done when you are with your kids. At the moment I have figured that the best way is to work while they are sleeping, it´s the only way to get more than ten minutes alone and without any noise, except for the snoring ðŸ™‚
