The Worst Place I Visit Way Too Often


The Procrasti-Nation

A place everyone visits at one time or another.  Unfortunately, I find myself firmly planted there more often than not.
For example, I actually started this post a couple of weeks ago, but I just couldn't seem to get motivated enough to finish (or really get started).  I found a few quotes on procrastination, saved them and eventually copied them to this page.  And there they sat.  Accusing me of the very thing they spoke of.
 
"Even if you’re on the right track-you’ll get run over if you just sit there." ~Will Rogers
     Is that a train?
"If and When were planted, and Nothing grew." ~Proverb
     Don't need a green thumb for this one.

"Do or do not do. There is no try." ~ Master Yoda
     Used the Force, I should have.
You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club."-Jack London,American writer
     Or is that a light saber?  

I don't know if I just get bored or distracted.  And, if it feels like work, then I will put it off till the last minute.

Or maybe it's just my rebellious side.  When I'm told I HAVE TO do something (or my head sends the same message), I tend to push away and do the opposite.
           
Well, whatever it is, it was temporarily deterred, just enough to let me finish this post.

Oh my, you've stated my sentiments exactly! I've felt unfocused lately.

Haha! I love the quotes. Just think what the world would be like if we took Master Yoda's advice!

We would be awesome if we lived by Yoda's rules! Nothing & no one would bother us. And then we could add ninja training & be invisible, too lol ;p

My problem hasn't been a lack of focus so much as it's been having way too much to do and not enough time to do it all. There is, however, an element of "focus" at work here - as a person with ADD, I often find myself in something of a muddle - with so many things to do, so much clamoring for attention, that I can't pick out which thing needs to be done first. I don't know where to start. So thngs get left undone.

Lou, I know the feeling! Sometimes it's almost as if you have to grasp randomly at the pile & do the first thing you see. Of course, I would look at it & say it could wait...LOL!
