Why didn’t I do this earlier?

I just completed an admin task that I’ve been agonising over for 6 weeks. It took me 45 minutes. Boom.

This task came into my inbox a few days before I went on holidays, and it was meant to be completed within a few days. Since then, I have read the e-mail several times. I added a note to my to do list. I even set a time in my diary to do it. But I never did it. And, of course, it has been in the back of my mind, all this time.

But, now, I finally got round to completing this task. It took me 45 minutes, which is a lot less time than I spent ‘planning it’. And it was such a relief to strike this off my list, and get it out of my mind. I couldn’t help asking me: why didn’t I do this earlier?

I really should know better by now, and not procrastinate this sort of tasks. Argh.

Do you have a system / mantra / trick to get you to do those things you have to, and save your time and energy thinking about it?

If Friends were being filmed now…

If friends were being filmed now, how would Rachel and Ross search for the meaning of Emma’s first word, Gleba*?


Search on their mobile phones? Ask Siri?
