Procrastination

Three-hundred-and-sixty-four days just isn’t enough time to accomplish much of anything.

Well, that’s not entirely true. Mark Twain said, “Never put off until tomorrow what can be done the day after tomorrow.” Apparently I took his words to heart:

In August I said, “I’ve still got almost an entire year.”

In November I said, “As soon as the holiday season has passed I will have more time.”

In February I said, “When I get back from Turkey I will really focus on it.”

In May I said, “I should really take a look at that list.” And never did.

On June 30th, I said, “Crap.”

I reviewed my “Thirty before 30” entry, the first time in months, and was baffled by the individual who thought she would accomplish all this in a short years time. When I checked the completed items off the list, the grand total was….. seven.

SEVEN? Out of thirty? That’s just downright humiliating.

I’ve still got 26 days. Twenty-six days to finish the last 23. Seems like a reasonable amount of time to become proficient in both French and sign-language.

I’m going to get started….first thing tomorrow.

    Seven is still more than most would accomplish. What are the other 23 items?
