Today I got up at 5 am and went for my Sunday morning run.
Bought fruits and newspapers on the way back.
Got home and made breakfast. My elder daughter was up so I made her breakfast too.
Afterwards, I deposited the recycling. Stopped at the gas station.
Back at home, I seasoned the meat that I was going to make for lunch – some pork chops and spare ribs.
Then a bathed the dogs. Then bathed me.
Then back to preparing lunch. Put the meat in the oven. Then prepared the vegetables.
Wash. Chop. Steam. Sautee.
The meat was done. Cut up the spare ribs.
A quick shower then a 10-minute break.
Then off to ironing my shirt, and the kids’ school uniforms.
Finished around 7:30 pm. Had dinner. Then sat down to type this up.
So busy. And I’m quite tired right now.
But what I wasn’t busy doing:
– Researching information for my final year project.
– Learning/practising development with Python.
– Learning ML/DL/AI.
– Mastering focus and time management.
It’s now the 1st of December and I haven’t made a dent in the things I planned to do this year.
I didn’t have to do many of the things I did today. I didn’t have to cook. Or iron the kids’ uniforms.
But I did it anyway.
And this is how procrastination works sometimes.
It’s not that you’re lazy. It’s that you decide to focus your time on other things.
Yes, I’ve done some useful things. But not doing my wildly important goals will hurt me in the long term.
