If one really wants to produce a product do not make a project of it! Projects are slow to be completed. As the second picture shows, I have projects aplenty on my desk. They are the things upon which I can procrastinate. They sound long; I can make them long. I really haven’t produced anything yet.
An answer to this letter was begun about five days ago. Actually the answer is now typed and awaits my next move which is to print it and mail it. See, I’ve even addressed the envelope. Sounds easy. No, because it is exactly one page full, top to bottom. It became a project when I tried to decide whether to make two pages out of it or whether I should change the font size. Decisions, decisions. They still await me.
The writer of the letter tells me in it that she is going on a trip and will be gone eleven days, so no hurry to make the decision.
Don’t make a project out of producing a product. Projects take way yonder too much time.

haha! Good one! I’m really bad about not finishing a project. So many started, so many just sitting there – or stuffed in the closet for another day. 🙂
Blogging brings together such good sisters. 😀
Last year I joined a support group for procrastinators. We are going to start meeting soon. 😅
I need to know when your first meeting is scheduled; otherwise, I will not know when to start procrastinating.
We’re going to set the schedule soon, just you wait and see! 😅
I don’t know if you’re like me (a little ADD, or maybe a lot), but for people like us a letter is a hard thing to accomplish. You need paper, a pen (that works), an envelope, a stamp, the right address, and a place to mail it where they haven’t picked up yet. You’re right, it can takes days.🙄
And memorizing that many steps in the process….no wonder I’m tired and I’m still not done!
I tend to procrastinate a lot! 😓 Sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it.
