Tuesday, getting started…

IMG_2658

I seem to have developed a new bad habit.  When something needs done I find all kinds of things to do instead of the thing needing  done.  There was a time when I was very good at doing what needed done before doing what I wanted to do.  However, now I will do just about anything, including doing nothing, to avoid doing the necessary thing.

I certainly have put the “pro” into procrastination.  I have gotten  good at putting things off.  There was a time when I was quite efficient and organized.  I was  good at starting a project or chore and seeing it through to completion.  I am still good at seeing something to the end–once I get started.  It’s the starting that is the problem.

Right now I have two new pairs of pants that are too long, they need  hemmed.  I  refuse to take them to a seamstress and pay to have them hemmed because I can do it myself–that and I am cheap.  I should add that I bought these pants in September–by the time I hem them  they probably won’t fit.  The reason I bought these   in the first place is because my old ones all have shrunk and are too snug.  Ok,  maybe they didn’t shrink…

Anyway, what’s my problem?  Like this was meant to be written yesterday but I just didn’t get to it–not that I did much of anything else yesterday.  Have I gotten lazy?  Or am I  bored?

Oh dear, I think one of the seven deadly sins is sloth!

I am going to have to think about this before I do anything.

  1. I think we all suffer this problem of procrastination in one degree or another. I start and finish many tasks and maybe even right on time. But certain other tasks, I can’t find time to do. Yup. Can’t find the time. No way. Can’t. Still waiting. Um. Soon, very soon. Blessings to you, Patricia…
