It feels good to finish something whether it's a project you've been working on for months or a few days. It gives me a sense of fulfillment every time I finish something even if it's an article titled "Top Ten Apps for Curling."
This is mostly because:
1) I don’t like to half-ass anything.
2) I don’t like to abandon anything I start whether it's a book or a piece I am writing.
But sometimes, it takes a while to even get started.
Why do we always find ways to distract ourselves when we really need to be working on something important?
Is it because that we are scared? Or are we just lazy?
When it comes to other “important” things like going out and sleeping, we don’t miss a beat.
I’ve been meaning to send something out to this mailing list for a while now but I keep putting it off. I keep telling myself to start writing then when Thursday night comes around, I’ll say to myself, “I’ll write something up next week.”
We are six weeks into the New Year and I’ve kept some of my resolutions (even though we aren’t supposed to call them resolutions).
I’ve been going to the gym twice a week and I started walking 2-3 miles a day.
I was thinking the other day that before I gained my weight, I used to walk a lot. One of my favorite things to do was put on my headphones and go for a late night walk around the block. I stop doing that about two years ago and coincidentally, that was about the same time I started to put on the pounds.
I know that isn’t the only contributing factor but that was a particular time in my life when I was sort active and happy.
I’m almost 30 and feel like a bum/loser but don’t feel sorry for me. I am starting to change my lifestyle in order to not be a bum/loser.
I’ll let you know how that goes later on.
