Running Alongside

I’m feeling like that a lot lately, like I’m just running alongside things, trying to hop back on. There’s so many things that I want to get done, and I need to realize that they’re not all going to get done at once.

I have a bad habit of putting off things I don’t feel like doing. It’s not very mature of me, really, but there you are. Worse, instead of doing something else productive that’s further down on the list, oftentimes I’ll just ignore my next-up list entirely and veg out with a video game or the internet.

There are so many categories of action items and responsibilities that I feel like I need to address RIGHT NOW. Zen podcast. Diet. Cleaning. Blogging. Posting and printing vacation photos. Editing vacation video. Hell, even organizing my GTD system (which isn’t nearly in the clockwork state I’d like it to be in yet). I need to come to terms with the fact that everything isn’t going to get done instantly, even if I’m productive as hell every evening. Which I’m not. And I shouldn’t have to be, not after an eight-hour day at work.

I need to stop pushing myself to do all this crap I can’t reasonably get done, and just relax and enjoy what I have going on. I’ve really got it easy, in the grand scheme of things, and I need to just chill the fuck out.

  1. first things first. self is more important that some trivial chore. then classify hobbies vs. things you like to do. there is a difference.
