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.
