A pledge

It occurs to me that for all my good intentions and list writing, my plans just don't come to fruition. It continues to be a source of frustration and defeatism. I'm one of those people that will write lists and lists, and lists of lists of all the things that I need to do and want to do. I plan for years ahead and if you asked me what I'll be doing on 5 June 2013, I could probably give you a vague idea of what I'd like to be doing then at this point in time. Makes no sense? Didn't think so.

Anyway, it all comes down to the fact that I am a really, really, really bad procrastinator. It's not that I don't intend to do things, I really do, it's just that most of the time...I just can't be bothered, or I can think of way more fun things to be doing. I know, naughty naughty. Now that I'm self-employed and control how I spend my days and what tasks I complete and ignore, I really should be better with myself and exercise some self-control and discipline but nooooooo. If anything, I'm probably worse than ever!

Well no more! Today I pledge to no longer procrastinate. I will no longer write meaningless lists. I will no longer waste time looking at other people's lives and wondering why it is that my life is nothing like it at all. I pledge to be more productive, more efficient, more not tired so much and more betterer than everer.

Anyway, this has been a bit word heavy. And since a picture is worth a thousand words, I will leave you with a picture representation of the life that I aspire to:

Off to write a list of what I need to do now...just joking, off to bed really (much more productive)! x


  1. What an awesome desk! I've just ordered hundreds of little plastic drawers to tidy up my sham of a workspace. Bring it on!

  2. Lists are fantastic! I don't think I could function if there wasn't a list on the go ;-) But yes there are some days that the lists do not get any ticks and I stare at pictures like that gorgeous desk!!
    Love Em x

  3. You sound just like me! more doing less thinking.
