Paper Trails . . .

Today's Post was supposed to be something along these lines:

See y'all tomorrow!
This is where I'll be if you need me!

It ended up more like:


Latin procrastinatus, past participle of procrastinarefrom 
pro-forward + crastinus of tomorrow, from cras tomorrow.   
The act of replacing high-priority actions with  tasks of lower 
priority, or doing something which one derives enjoyment, 
and thus putting off important tasks to a later time.

I'm not so much a procrastinator and a perfectionist.  You wouldn't know that right off.  But, in my defense, perfectionism is not the same as OCD.  I only delay accomplishing a task because I feel the need to complete the task once I dive in and if that window of time isn't available I put it off for another day.  I know I'm not alone in!

You see! I'm blogging right now instead of tackling the stack of paperwork on my desk (the one thing I hi-lighted on the to-do list for today -- paperwork, not blogging).  Hmmmm.  

This explains why the garage is a wreck, my studio is a wreck, the dining room table is a wreck (again), the foyer bench is piled high, there's a tower of books the length of the bed in the guest room, and the deck pressure washing hasn't been accomplished.  

I'm been for the last dozen years trying to re-learn accomplishing large tasks in small increments.  Problem is I bounce from one thing to another and back again [attempting to accomplish a lot in one day] seemingly never to complete the task at hand until my alter-ego gets a firm grip on my constitution and yells "NO! Finish this!"  It's a good feeling to finish a task, although when I step back to gaze and then make a 90 degree turn there's the other stuff on the list waiting.  Is your list like that?  You mark off one thing and add five during the process?  Ugh!  There I go off in another direction!  The to-do list.  Which brings me full circle back to where I'll be ... if you need me!  Note: Yes! I've been told they make a drug for this!

Some days this is my thought process ... 
unrelated to math.
