There are so many things that can get us off track when we are doing something. It takes a certain amount of discipline to stay on course sometimes. Especially when we are not completely confident in ourselves.
Those of you who have come to know me through this series know that from time to time I get this way. I truly appreciate your wonderful support yesterday, and I did make progress, but unfortunately not the amount of progress that would have made me happy. It feel as if I have been running through the mud the past couple of days and it is time to take a breath and suck it up and get on with it.
I know this is a temporary thing that I am going through, as it has happened many times before. I over think and for some reason it slows my production of ‘real work’ down to the speed of molasses. I am still pushing the pile, but it is moving e-v-e-r s-o s-l-o-w! Time to rev it up and get back up to normal speed.
I am going to call this past weekend “the weekend of a thousand excuses” and leave it at that. I am not saying that some of the excuses were not legitimate excuses, but they did absolutely nothing to help get me out of the proverbial mud puddle I have found myself in.
So I have two choices here.
1 – I can sit here are philosophize about things and explore all the reasons that this current bout with distraction has occurred. We can discuss the possibilities and causes and delve into some underlying reasons and talk about my insecurities and how I can overcome them.
2 – I can get to work and finish the job I set out to do.
It’s Monday – a day I always liked because of its implications of being a “new beginning” of the week. Fresh starts and all of that.
So with that said, I AM keeping this short and I am off to get to work. I wish you all a wonderful day full of fun and productivity!
Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task. ~William James
