I want to do so many things yet everyday I come up with a perfect excuse to sit on my behind. When I think about those excuses after the fact, they are ridiculous and I am filled with regret. There is plenty of time in a day to do all my little tasks. So today I want to permanently write them down so I can indefinitely label them as non sense.
- Work on my side project.
- Read a novel.
- Learn a new skill.
Many to Many
- I have to go to work.
- My car broke down.
- It's raining outside.
- I'm too busy.
- I have to drive.
- I'm taking the bus.
- I'm late for work.
- I have a meeting.
- I have too much work at work.
- I am babysitting.
- I have to meet a friend.
- I'm tired.
- It's 2:50am.
- Use something from column 1 as an excuse.
These are my excuses and I can come up with much more for each of those fields. I bet you have yours too. There are times where I have excuses but I still get my work done. All the long reflections never lead to solutions. The way I get do things is to Just do it.
Sometimes we have little fears, so we chose the path with least resistance. I have those fears. The reason why I have all these excuses is because the outcome of my actions are unpredictable. I don't know how it will go wrong so I avoid it. That fear/thrill of being on the spot, the heart beating fast, the feeling of being already too deep to look back.
Hiking at Temescal Canyon Santa Monica. Can't give up half way.
Sometimes you have to put yourself in the spot. Like a friend once told me, if you are doing something that is making you uncomfortable, you are probably doing the right thing.
On occasions, I did public speaking and despite all the sweat and fear, I still enjoyed it.
So go ahead find your excuse for not doing something you think you should. Now that you know what it is, word to the wise, just Fucking do it.
