Are you like me? I’m not sure what to label the action, or lack of action. I just know the results, or again, the lack of results. Here’s how it goes.
I start up my computer each day with a specific task in mind. And I’m busy – working all day on the keyboard. Typing, selecting websites to browse, reading and clicking on news headlines and scouring the email inbox, clicking on links.
Maybe I’ll get tired and walk around the house or sometimes take a little nap. Occasionally, I’ll awake from a nod after falling asleep at the computer.
Regardless, I’m busy and entertained all day. So what’s the beef, you say?
Well, as the sun goes down, and I begin to wind down from the pressures on the day, thoughts begin to emerge of the happenings after dinner. What’s on TV tonight? Any thing interesting or worth watching?
So, after dinner either I’m watching TV or still perusing the web on the computer, or as happens most nights, I’m doing both at the same time. Well, that’s okay. I’ve worked steadily all day and deserve a little pleasure.
And then, as I reflect on the events of the day, reality hits me. Yes, I’ve been busy and occupied all day with just a few short breaks and stops for coffee and meals, but the task I began to perform this morning is still unperformed.
You see, as I opened the computer to begin the task this morning, a headline caught my eye. I clicked the link to quickly check the article. While reading the article, another link or headline caught my eye.
That was 10 or 11 hours ago and I can’t understand what happened to all the time. Oh well! Tomorrow, I’ll get an early start and make up for today.
