I’m not ready for Monday; so I would like to just postpone it. That’s right!! Let’s start tomorrow or maybe the next day. You know….stop the clocks. Gone Fishin’! Anyone want to join me?!!
How many times do you hear someone say…”If I had just one more day…” We always think we would be better at something or more prepared or feel more rested or just have a better start….if we just had a little more time! I do it all the time. I call them the “Should’ve, Would’ve, Could’ve ‘s” We all think we are just on the edge of a breakthrough or look for something to, at least, use as an excuse for why we don’t do better. I’ve been doing it all day. I have a huge project that is due tomorrow; but my usual combination of poor planning and procrastination has got me in a ‘dash for the finish line’ for tomorrow’s project. I have all the valid excuses (or so I keep telling myself) of why I have put myself in this place. You know what REALLY annoys me?? This is not the first time….nor it will it probably be the last time! Why do I do this to myself??
Maybe I like the thrill of the last minute rush, or maybe I AGAIN didn’t plan wisely or maybe even, I set myself up to fail sometimes. Honestly, right now, I’m thinking I’m just plain stupid!
OK….we realistically can’t postpone Monday….and even though it didn’t get off to a great start, perhaps it can end on a high note. Nose to the grindstone. Let’s get those projects finished. I am the little red engine…I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!!
How about you? Got any of these hot fires to put out around your house? I’ve started at the top of my priority list. Today I will tackle my list and get my project finished.
By the end of the day, I will probably be exhausted. But, sometimes there is a good type of exhausted feeling…..the feeling of accomplishment and getting things done.
At the end of the day, Pat yourself on the back.
But, don’t linger on your laurels for too long.
Tomorrow is a new day and I’m sure you have lots you need to get marked off your list. Start each day with an attitude of doing your very best and not wasting precious time in front of a TV or maybe your computer or any of the multiple possibilities of not staying on track to be the best you can be.
Your friends on Facebook will understand. In fact, how about posting to your timeline, the list you want to get accomplished this week. I dare you to make the declaration….and follow through with gusto.
Sorry I couldn’t really postpone Monday for you.
You might find out, however, it’s going to turn out to be a great day.
