Procrastination

letter_p_erteProcrastination.

I suffer from it. I’m especially suffering from it right now, even as I write this brief post. I put off doing things while I watch other things pile up in front of me. Sadly, the end result is usually in disappointing people.

I’m usually guilty of procrastination when things are running smoothly. Circumstances in my life have caused me to be “on call” a great deal. I don’t even mean this as a big complaint, just that my time is in demand, surprisingly, and there’s only one of me, ya know? So I need to figure out how to spread me around and still have time for the people that matter to me.

I’m sure I’ll figure it out.

I’m sure it will involve embracing “No.”

I think I can handle that. “No.”

That was easy. “No, thank you.” Ah, much better.

“No, I can’t do that right now.” Nope. That implies I might do it later. No. Nope. Not a chance.

Okay, well, I’m going to go practice.

So much to catch up on!

I seem to be a little obsessed with the exclamation point! Sheesh!

I’ve used it in just about everything I’ve written in the past week. Time to wrap it up and put it away for a long time. Or until I feel like using it again.

Anyway, I’m behind. I’m behind in just about everything except work. How’s that for irony? Don’t worry, it won’t last for long since I collect some assignments tomorrow. For today, I’ll bask in the delusion that I am ahead there, too.

Still, I’m going to organize myself a little bit this afternoon, and come back later with a report of my progress. I figure, if I say I’m going to do it, then I’ll have to follow through with it, right? Hmm. Maybe.
