Finish it or cancel it

Finish it or cancel it

On Sunday’s I tend to get up late. I love having breakfast with my husband, something we never do during the week before heading off for a morning of fun typically at the beach or at a friend’s home. By 3:00 p.m. we are back at the house and I head to my computer. I get this practice from my father. A journalist all his life, my father used the hours between our church going and the serving of Sunday lunch to write columns; get his quotes; calls leads for a story; and plan for the week ahead.

In many ways the apple hasn’t fallen from the tree. My father also had another practice I’ve adopted; I like to work when the world is at play.

  1. I agree, that is my plan for this month as well, for me, school opens soon and to get a head start, i have already began planning the semester and my final year production. I also have a lot of projects and accomplishments that i want to achieve by the end of the year, they all need attention and initiation from now. Using this ‘free time’ ensures i get more done and be better prepared for ‘hard work’ come September.

  2. I’ve been pondering on this exact topic for the past two weeks; namely how do I complete the things that I need to do in good timing, inclusive of this year’s academic work. With the reopening of school in two weeks, committee meetings every other evening, and planning for the lauch of a new book, the days are getting shorter and tougher. Fall out of the committee and cancel the extra work? Hell no! Not an option. The fight is on: the hemarexin bought for energy, the coffee brewed for late nights and the trihemoglobin on stock for my anemia. Nothing’s gonna stop me now. I have 2 weeks to find an apartment and get prepared for another year of hard work. I’m aiming towards Christmas for the launch of the book.
