Get on with it woman!


The crazy summer heat has finally broken here, and I have to say it is a relief! We aren't used to such temperatures in this country. With it being a little cooler I feel like I can actually get on with some work! Except.....

I have completely fallen out of the swing of things. I don't know about you but if I stop doing things for a period of time (illness, summer hols, mad heat! Any reason) I kinda forget how to do it. I know the mechanics but I can't seem to get functioning! I need to finish my dissertation for my MA. It is due September and I am still writing it! I need to prep for the TPT sale (coming on the 1st and 2nd of August EEEEEEEeeeeeee) and I really really really need to sort out my junk and buy some new clothes, this is getting a bit beyond sane now. So this blog post is as much for me as for you because we all need a reminder sometimes to just get on with it!

Ok so here are my tips for when you just feel like you cannot get anything done!

1- Set a timer

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/The-Ginger-TeacherWhen it comes to my dissertation I tell myself silly things like 'I can't do it right now, I don't have my study brain on' but then, of course, it doesn't get done. So I set a timer for 15 mins and tell myself I will write for 15 minutes, and I just do it, it doesn't matter if it is not very good (that's what editing is for) I just need to add something to it. If after the 15 minutes I still feel like I cannot carry on I take a break and do something else but then make sure I come back to it and try again after completing a different task. I do this 4 times and then if I still am not getting anywhere at least I did an hour's work today and I can try and get more in the zone tomorrow. Set a timer guys! 




2 - Help someone else 


I need to redo a lot of my covers (did I mention there is a sale coming?). I can't seem to find the omph! However, a friend of mine recently opened her own TPT store! (She is fab by the way run over and follow her please! Platinum Pedagogy) I helped her set up and get started, I gave her lots of tips and advice that I had learnt from making my own resources and in doing so it reminded me how much I enjoy doing this. It is fun I don't know why I have been putting it off!

and finally...


3- Set a reward


I have been binge watching Son's of Anarchy recently, yes I do realise how far behind the rest of the world I am, on top of that the latest season of 'Orange is the New Black' has hit Netflix! I really, really, really, would rather be watching these than doing the things I need to do. But I am strong! I do not get to see Jax getting angry at everyone until I have reached a goal, it might be 5 new covers, it might be writing 1,000 more words, what ever it is I am strict with myself and then when I get to settle down and watch it I am happier and not worrying about how much work I am not doing.... Well mostly. 

Have a great summer everyone :)

Anyone that saw my last post will know that I made a bit of a mistake (oops!) with my new website but I have managed to fix this now. With that in mind I decided it would be a good idea to have a little give away.


To celebrate my new website I am giving everyone a discount code worth $5 at my store. This code can be used as full or part payment on any of my resources!

www.thegingerteacher.com





This code is only valid until Monday the 16th of July so get your skates on!

My store has resources for all primary ages so take a look :)

Whoops!



I have been crazy busy trying to redo my website - The Ginger Teacher for a while now and there are so many things I have overlooked!

I seem to find a new mistake every day. Today, however, I discovered a pretty bad one! I had all my products set as physical products (everything on my website is digital download). Not only this but when people tried to download anything, even the free resources, they were charged $20 shipping!

What can I say? I am so sorry lovely visitors to my site! Please come back I have fixed this!

If you would like to take a look at some of my free resources they are really free now I promise!
