Thanks very much to Saumya for our prompt word of the day, “busy.” You can find Saumya’s blog here. I didn’t find a Just Jot it January post there–maybe she’s busy! 😀 Go visit her and say hi, and give her a follow!
You know, I say I’m busy all the time, but it’s not necessarily the case. Kind of.
I mean, I always do have something to do.
But some of those things I have to do take a certain amount of creativity.
And so, I’ll sit down to get “busy” on them, and I just … can’t. So I run off and make myself a cup of tea, or play a mindless game, or learn something from a podcast … You get the picture.
And then sometimes I come back to whatever it is I need to do, and I can actually do it.
But other times, I come back and immediately run away again. Because I’m not ready. Not creative enough. Or just afraid that whatever I do with whatever it is I need to create will come out as crap.
It’s procrastination, is what it is.
But it’s not just that.
The fear is real.
The problem is, when I do reach the deadline (which is usually bed time) that I absolutely have to sit down and do it, I get stressed.
Because if I just hadn’t procrastinated all day, I’d have it done and I’d be able to get to bed before 2am.
I need a way to get over it.
The solution is probably exercise.
Yeah. I’ll do that instead of what I’m supposed to be busy doing.
