It has been exactly one month since Jorge and I returned from Europe. While on our trip, I vowed that once I got back to Merida, I would do many things differently:
- I would make the time to do what I want, instead of doing what I “think” I have to do
- I would adopt the “Mediterranean” style of cooking, and my excess pounds would melt away in time for my daughter’s December wedding
- I would get back to Yoga and walking at the stadium
- I would get a great haircut and color job
- I would spend three hours a day writing
- I would keep my email up to date
- I would organize all my files (including cell phone directory, address book, email contacts list)
- I would put my photographs from our vacation into a beautiful album
And how many changes have I made?
- I have done very well with the first action item: I’ve come to “think” of all the other points as things I have to do, and true to my intentions, I am not doing them.
It’s called P-R-O-C-R-A-S-T-I-N-A-T-I-O-N… and I suspect that many of us suffer from this persistent character attribute.
But every day is an opportunity for a fresh start, don’t you think? When it comes down to it, we shouldn’t berate ourselves; we’re doing the best we can… I’ve made “some” steps forward with all of the above, and after all… a little progress is better than none at all, right?
