One of these days I am going to get help for my procrastination problem. But for now, like everything else, it will have to wait.
Have you ever visited procrastiNATION? Once there you are pretty much stuck.
The pile of laundry needs conquered. It can wait.
We don't really need to go to the store today. I mean, toilet paper isn't really THAT important. Is it?
Six month prior: Signing up for the half-marathon=good idea + lots of training
Six weeks prior: I can walk a half-marathon, right?
If it weren't for the last minute, I wouldn't get anything done. Okay, that isn't completely true. However, the big jobs can be so daunting. When it comes to my to do list, I often tackle the quick easy tasks. Am I the only person who has the habit of saving the big jobs for WHEN I have more time?
IF I plan to do something conditionally, the condition is never met; and the job will remain undone.
We can not live our lives by IFs and WHENs. We are to live our lives with purpose and direction.
I was surprised to realize that my sickness creeping into my writing habits as well. But anyone who has done it know that writing a novel is one of those big tasks. So it got shoved down to the section of my TO DO LIST labeled, THINGS I WISH I DOING (but do not have time for). I also have THE THINGS I WISH SOMEONE ELSE WOULD DO FOR ME section, but I digress.
Along with many other items on the virtual to do list, writing is being moved to a new section, THINGS THAT I REFUSE TO IGNORE ANY LONGER. I challenged last week to make September a month of writing. While I did begin reading Million Dollar Outlines by David Farland, I have not finish it yet. So I will continue with that. But on top of that goal, I have made a goal to write 500-1000 words 6 days a week. Now to some that may seem small, but the purpose of the challenge is to reestablish good writing habits.
A writer writes. So that is what I will do.
