I operate my life out of a basis that it’s mental, good, and individual. From that perspective, I watch some of the things I do and don’t do. I watch me keep me real, real busy doing tasks. I like tasks. I like checking them off my To-Do list. I’m in a business (Virtual Assisting) that allows me to make To-Do lists for my clients and then check them off. This gives me great joy in the productivity and accomplishment of my tasks.
And then I look at the things that never make the To-Do lists. And I recognize that frequently those things that never make the list are the things I think are of the utmost importance in my life! Now, folks, that’s just a little bit self-destructive. “Once I quit coughing.” “If I didn’t have so much to do for my clients.” “As soon as I find a new housekeeper.” It’s the business of Martha that keeps the desires of Mary at bay, she say with a wry wiggle of her eyebrows.
I know it. I know what to do about it. Why don’t I do it? I’m going to keep my answer to myself at this point, but I want to throw out a question to you: do you procrastinate like this about the really important things in your life too?
I’m beginning to think about (arrrgggghhhhh!) New Year’s Resolutions. Throw up! It’s what made me blog about this. Just wonder if I’m the only procrastinator out there?
I got a new Virtual Assisting client today. Soon as I receive her agreement, I’ll point you at her killer blogs!
