I have a wee, tiny bit of a problem with self-discipline.
I have an extraordinary talent for procrastination.
Anyway you say it, and FYI I’m going with door #2 here, I’m not as productive as I should be.
How does Nike put it? Just Do It! Great slogan, but… um… how?
I read a little nugget of wisdom that went, “If you want to reach your goals, get out of bed.” Woah. Perfect, right? Clear, simple, practical…excellent wake up call. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)
I set my alarm. The getting up, exercise, shower and dress part went pretty well. Somehow though, between the breakfast table and my laptop I ended up watching Netflix. — Fail.
I found a second pearl of wisdom that was particularly clever. “Stop watching TV.” Right, simple. No problem.
I moved my laptop upstairs to the guest bedroom, closed the door. Quiet, private, no TV, no distractions … uh, yeah, about that …
The bedroom has a window … and the sun was shining … and my phone was right there.
And since I was snapping pictures anyway …
Yeah. — Fail.
Easily distracted, there’s a cure for that, right? 🙂
