I am not sure when I became so good at procrastination but I really believe that I have it down as a fine art. Should it be on my CV? I mean, how do you decide what to do first?
I currently have about 8 projects on the go – either in reality or in my head. Two I have actually started on and the others are in note form and I have purchased various bits of research material. I have so many things I want to do yet finite time in which to do them in.
On the one hand, I think I should perhaps finish the ones I have already started. The rationale behind this is that the completion of these projects will be a boost. It will spur me onwards to bigger and better things. I can visualise how amazing I will feel once these are finally completed.
On the other hand, my brain is a veritable whirlpool of ideas all of which I feel super-enthusiastic about starting. Only I don’t because I feel bad about the old incomplete projects and don’t want to end up with yet more unfinished projects. I know this will achieve nothing apart from making me feel demoralised. Then I feel demoralised because I have neither started the new tasks nor completed the old one. Around and around I go..
So here I sit flipping from pole to pole and I am so busy procrastinating, constantly deliberating what to do next, that I am not even get started let alone finished.
Maybe I should just do something?
