AVOID PROCRASTINATION-EAT YOUR FROG
Not literally, just a term my Aunt (the voice of reason du jour) uses to overcome/combat (because for me it IS a battle)…PROCRASTINATION. HATE IT. CAPS ALL THE WAY ON THIS…ETC
See even using caps and writing this, my first blog piece is a form of me declining to ‘eat any frogs’ and opt for some Haribos in a bowl, don’t worry its got eggs inc so this is what I call breakfast…oh look there’s even tea. 🙂
Some of you may already know the term, and the idea behind it is to get those humongous, looming, most difficult or even time consuming tasks done before any of the others. enabling you to then work your way down the tasks descending via difficulty rating-the complete opposite of any console game I’ve ever had the pleasure to play and aid me in my life pursuit-(here it comes…) PROCRASTINATION.
The benefits are supposed to outweigh the cons; facing your nemesis for the BOSS BATTLE;-CON,
In order to reach the end goal of everything getting easier leading through to completion over all those tasks that hold you tied down to the DEATHTRACK-aka TRAINTRACK of that classic movie scene;-PRO
-HERO constricted by a BOA CONSTRICTOR or dependent on budget and a lack thereof by a measly but no less immobilising rope, as a train is heading straight for you *crash, bang, wallop, ouch, crack, splatter*…THE END.
If you can’t escape in time. *pauses to gain life by eating a few haribo hearts, it works in SuperMario right?* Sooooo I’ve gained life chances, now to face the tasks due by deadlines* (train!), depending on budget a constrictive item (PROCRASTINATION!), HERO (me!)…
However simple it sounds, and just how many movies exist where the Hero somehow manages to disengage themselves from the DEATHTRACK…FOR ME not to turn into a denial ridden human being is tricky as….some ancient genius’ mathematical theory; solvable but no less riddled with ?????
I will do all in power to try and divert from the DEATHTRACK (lots of death and danger in this post.. in real life one hopes these are a lot less literal in regards to PROCRASTINATION…) I will overbook myself; going out with friends, training courses, visiting family (this is in no particular order by the way!), tidying up my room (things I’d normally avoid, or that can wait if I’m being honest)…-aaaand when I actually switch on my laptop…-the classic looking for jobs I have no intention of applying for, checking emails, opening every newsletter I’m subscribed to-needlessly *sighs*, signing petitions…signing MORE….scheduling appointments (the dentist, the doctor, the therapist**, the gynaecologist) organising my inbox et al…it goes on and on and ON!
And now blogging!
Well now I’ve procrastinated enough…
I think I shall attempt to do the impossible and drink my tea…shoot see I still have my hands metaphorically tied, I’m drinking my tea like a cat! I need to just stop writing about it and do what I’m meant to be doing first-eating my FROG. Not in France but in ENGLAND. London. Wish me luck and deliver me from PROCRASTINATION!
*deadlines-see even the words associated with procrastinating are quite devastating and life threatening…
**therapist-because I clearly need help with coming to terms with just how bad my denial is when it comes to procrastinating and dealing with things…that I know need to get DONE.
