Putting things off

3 Comments

On the radio morning show this morning, they did a phone survey asking what things you’ve been meaning to do/need to do but have been putting off. That got me thinking, and I was a bit surprised by how many things there are:

I’ve slipped a little on my daily word count goal. But that’s not really putting off.

I’d been putting off getting a new car, but I took care of that over the weekend.

I’ve been intending to get out and socialize more, but had been putting it off (one reason being the beat-up old car I’d been using).

I’ve been intending to start going to church again, but have been putting that off, too.

I’ve been intending to get new glasses but haven’t gotten around to it yet.

My hair could probably use a trim, but I’ve been putting it off because I’ve been thinking of growing it out.

I have a group of short stories I’ve been thinking of compiling together and putting out on Amazon, but haven’t done it yet.

Going through clothes in my closet.

Sorting through the stuff I took out of my old car before I traded it in.

Exercising.

 

 

So, what sort of things have you been putting off doing lately?

  2. Mowing!!!! Exercising! Dusting! The un-fun stuff 🙂 Made myself the promise at the beginning of the year that I would spend more time doing the more important things. Spending time with Marty and the Gang, my family, reading, feeding my soul. I have been doing pretty good. Now I need to work on doing the chores 🙂
