“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”
We are always starting new things. The day, lunch, that e-mail that you’ve been meaning to write for ages, the blog post about rhubarb pie that’s going to be good once you write something about it… Then there are the bigger things, like starting a new year, a new job, or a new school. Usually the bigger things happen even if you’re not ready. The summer ends, time moves on, you have to get used to a different part of life. The small things, however, don’t just happen on their own. You have to make them happen. But what if you don’t want them to happen? What if you just want to give it a little time and see if it disappears? That, my friend, is called procrastination.
I am a bit of a procrastinator. If you stop by my mind for a minute you might find it reasoning that Monday’s blog post really might not need to happen on Monday… maybe Tuesday? and if you stop by the next day, it may be happening again. Well, with more school work this year, as well as blogging, science, and Jungleheroes, I’ve figured out that I really need to stop procrastinating…. (as I write this instead of other homework… well, this post had been a draft for a few days now… it really needed to get published!)
My advice to myself:
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
