Well, as I am not getting much done I have had time on my hands to consider what things I should be doing, and while I am busy getting all that nothing done, I am also building up a healthy level of hobby guilt.
You probably know what it feels like…
Me: I should really start that ‘thing’ that I haven’t finished yet.
The Other Me: Ah, but this would be easier and it also needs doing.
Me: Good idea, I will do that instead.
The Other Me: Hang on though, this looks like it might be worth doing.
Me: Ah yes, we planned to have a game of that soon so I should tackle that first really.
The Other Me: Hold up, have you seen the time, don’t you have to be somewhere else soon?
Me: Bugger, that’s right… I can’t believe that have been in here for 2 hours and haven’t gotten anything done yet.
The Other Me: Well, as you have to leave in the next hour you had best not start anything as you will only need to put it all away soon. You know how easily you lose track of time when you get into something.
Me: You are probably right, if I don’t have much time then I had best just tidy up this corner of the shed.
The Other Me: Oh, what’s that? I had forgotten that I had that…
A flustered English gent finally leaves an untidy shed in a frantic hurry. Already 30min late for the thing across town that he had promised his women folk that they would be at! All to the sounds of a frustrated English lady bellowing from the house ‘but you said you were coming out an hour ago!’
Well, I plan to try to write a formal plan, a sort of plan of action for the first quarter of 2018. Not a BIG PLAN that would cover everything but a plan that is achievable and likely to get done. That plan will prioritise what gets done first
Item 1 Write up the plan…
Item 2 … Oh, what’s that? I had forgotten that I had that…
