All right, stop it. I’m doing it again. Looking at a list of 25 “things” I need to get done not as a separate delineation of tasks, but as a huge cloud of ain’t-gonna-happen. Why do we big-picture thinkers get into trouble like this?

I think it’s just laziness. I don’t want to actually get up, make the decision to dive in, and dive in. I like the planning/thinking stage, and the getting up isn’t a problem. It’s the starting; the initial stages of “I have such a long way to go” that I hate.

Yeah, that’s what I’ll do. After coffee, breakfast, a walk on the treadmill, and catching up on last night’s episode of The Newsroom.


Last four days of freedom, here I go.

Thanks for reminding me about Newsroom :)

Ditto on the planning on thinking. I’m procrastinator #1 when it comes action time. Hope it all goes well!

I know, right? Why do today what you can put off till tomorrow? We need to slap ourselves out of that!

And I am loving loving LOVING West Wing. So glad you guys recommended it. I didn’t get a chance to watch Newsroom this morning, but that’s on the agenda for this afternoon. Awesome show. Sorkin overload.
