I'm Committed




This morning I woke up with a singular purpose. I commit to getting my To Do List done for the day.

First, however, I check Twitter. Then I check some more. Then I hope someone will respond to what I thought was a brilliant tweet, so I keep checking.

Then I think, wow, I really need to write a blog post. I’ll start that after I check Twitter again, cuz dammit, that Tweet was funny.

And now I need to tackle the To Do list. But I can’t actually find the list. I dig under three Cheetos bags, a dog leash, a Camp Trip Release form (shit, that was supposed to go out yesterday) and finally, triumphantly find the list. It has orange fingerprints on it and is much longer that I remember.

I really need to redo this. I should have columns sorting these tasks between high priority and low priority (and the column for the shit, that let’s be real, I am never going to fucking do), emails, calls, proposals etc.

Then I check Twitter again. And then I check to see if anyone posted a comment on my Blog. But I’m not posting a lot to my blog, cuz, uh, duh – I have a lot of things on my To Do List.

You know what. I feel tired. I’ll hit this hard -- tomorrow. I’ll just crank through it all then. That’s the ticket. I’ll write a blog, redo the list, work on the tasks. Tomorrow is the day. The Golden Day. I’ll get up early.

Cuz now I need to check Twitter. Cuz dammit, that Tweet was Golden!

  1. Damn Dee, you are funny! I wouldn't been here earlier but my feed didn't show a new post until this morning.
    I'm now going to hunt down that Golden Tweet. Hope I find it before that lucky bastard Charlie does.
    Good luck on the to-do, I feel your pain!

  6. I know that feeling-you send it, thinking it is pure gold, and crickets. Nothing. You almost want to get mad. "You people don't GET IT."

  12. The wormhole of rewriting the to do list to make it more efficient combined with tweeting - in addition to making time for breaks and snacks... it can be exhausting! But somehow we keep going back ;)
