I am happy to say that blogging more often has helped me get back into the discipline of writing regularly and I’m currently halfway through a manuscript which I hope to get published in the future. So I feel less pressure to blog as this is not my sole writing outlet.
Having said that I did sign up to the WordPress Postaweek2011 challenge. Whenever I write a blog post, I relax in the knowledge that I have a whole week/7 days/168 hours within which to write another. However one week isn’t as long as I’d like it to be as too quickly it’s gone and another post is due.
I would like to be proactive and have several posts scheduled for publishing more than once a week but I have to accept the limitations of time, inspiration, inclination and sometimes plain procrastination. When I think I have lots of time to accomplish a task, I tend to leave it till the last-minute.
So for this week’s post, I’ve written a rhyme about procrastination. Hope you enjoy it along with the images I got off Google.
If you’ve got something to do
Now’s as good a time as any
For soon it’ll be overdue
And your tasks, way too many.
If you’ve got some goals to accomplish
Best to get stuck in straight away
For soon you’ll be wringing your hands in anguish
And shaking your head in dismay.
You may think you’ve got lots of time
And wonder why I’m writing this silly rhyme
But all too soon the time goes by
And becomes short in supply.
Time waits for no man
Not even for woman
Stop putting off till another day
What you can do today.
I hope this rhyme motivates you
That henceforth you’ll eschew
Procrastination in all its subtle forms
And to your life bring great reforms.
Tara for now.
