For the past few years, I've taken the time to actually do a little post abpit my resolutions. Last year's were quite traditional: lose weight (fail), get more sleep (fail), take on a big house project (SUCCESS!) and build blog readership (hard to say....). And this year, I wasn't all jazzed up to set out any more big resolutions. But today I read a little something and I changed my mind. I do have one.
I really think this is a good one to focus on. I read a little thing online today that really hit home. While procrastination may be a "victimless crime" (nobody is going to starve or be forced to wear dirty undies on my watch), it does impact overall happiness.
Think about it this way. I like to watch tv. But which is more satisfying - watching an hour of TV with piles of laundry around waiting to be washed/folded? or watching an hour of TV in a clean and uncluttered space because all that laundry is DONE and put away?
I find myself taking my leisure whenever I want rather than taking it after I earn it. This leaves some tasks un-done (or done after midnight, pushing bedtime out later...hence the fail at my "get more sleep" resolution from last year).
So that's it. End Procrastination. I start tomorrow.
