I can't help myself - w-a-y too much forget-me-not LOVE + bonjour sweet little spider (photo 1) I'm crazy about spiders also
Lack of confidence, sometimes alternating with unrealistic dreams of heroic success, often leads to procrastination, and many studies suggest that procrastinators are self-handicappers: rather than risk failure, they prefer to create conditions that make success impossible, a reflex that of course creates a vicious cycle James Surowiecki
THUD ! that's me flinging myself off of my chair again ... and again ... over & over again with pure intense melodrama - that's how much I want to do these 2 daunting tasks. Today and until it's done, I'm working on Daunting 1 - I am attempting to create a filling system on my computer, then go through the kazillion, billion bits & pieces of vip stuff - my own collage icons & clip art, project files, giclee files, high res images ... blog post photos. It makes me want to fling off again just writing about it. Ick ! yuck ! resistance, procrastination, clock watching - I'm having/doing it all - I'm living in procrastination big time today.
I'm trying to tell myself that this cleaning up my computer files project is no more daunting then the fabulous & terrifying Starbucks project (truthfully they are equally daunting in scope, in fact this project might actually be way less daunting). I'm telling myself also that I am as important a customer to myself as Starbucks is to me ;-) true also ! To move forward, this last half of 2014, in the big, bad, spectacular way I want to move my Creative Empire forward I must organize my shit & organize it to the hilt and I know it's gonna feel so freakin' fantastic when I'm DONE - that's the carrot I'm dangling in front of me.
It is SO much harder to meet a self imposed, self-directed deadline - shockingly harder - & that is a bummer
Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time
wow ! so true
