It’s bad. It’s very bad. I have been procrastinating on a few projects that I could probably knock out in 2 days time, assuming I ever got two days time to work on anything related just to me. But it’s on a whole other level now. I can’t start.
I could start. I could be starting right now. But instead I blog. And I blogged a mini-series yesterday when I was supposed to be working. Bad.
One project isn’t even that bad, I just haven’t sat down to start. Once I start it will not be horrible, I might even enjoy it. But it’s sitting down to start that I’m having a hard time with.
The other I am Dreading (that capital D is totally intentional.) It’s like a huge magnet is dragging my body away from the task. It’s actually quite pathetic.
Since tomorrow is Saturday, I would normally try to dig in, but Mike will be gone most of the day/night. So Sunday I am totally digging in. I am not coming out until I am done. (OK, maybe I’ll go eat breakfast first and then start…) I will blog tomorrow, assuming I have something better than today to drivel on about. But you won’t see me Sunday until my work is done. I am drawing the line in the sand.
Part of the problem is that neither task has a specific deadline. I must have a deadline. Without a deadline I am nothing. And I am usually getting down to business about 24 hours before any given deadline.
So I am giving myself a deadline in the hopes that will help. (Except it probably won’t because I am me, and I know that it is not really a deadline, but a pretend deadline.) See you tomorrow. And I hope with all my heart to see you the next day too.
