Nah, not like the guy here, although I could probably use a good amount of time with an analyst (and who couldn’t, really?).
What I need is to be more committed.
I am a person who is easily distracted. I have a lot of things I like to do. I have a lot of things I like to think. Staying “locked in” is sometimes a bit of a challenge.
When I was working for a living, if I didn’t get all my work done immediately, I waited until the there was a feeling of urgency to get it all done. The slightest procrastination led to the urgency method, since I was not interested in the day-in/day-out working process (borrring!).
I see the same attitude across many of my interests, public and private. For example, I dearly enjoy writing, but it’s clear my commitment to publishing that writing is in need of a boost. Presuming my stay could avoid the white jacket (no hands free), perhaps a laptop and a padded room would be just what the doctor ordered (psychiatrist or medical, take your pick).
I have made some half-hearted attempts at re-starting my mothballed social life and that clearly needs more commitment if I hope to add some more interesting characters into my life. Nobody wants to be with a lukewarm fence-sitter, so I better pick one side and hop down.
My physical health is good, but my workout regimen remains spotty. Sometimes I can go a month or month and a half of consistent exercise and then <bam!> nothing for a week. No program will work effectively without a commitment to regular training.
In the meantime, I play on the computer or read or draw or play tennis or play poker or go for a drive or watch a movie or sit on the patio or any of a dozen other short-term things that manage to interrupt my efforts to work on my long-term goals.
Enough is enough! I am committed to getting committed!
