Today I have had my hair cut and restyled; done the house shopping; hoovered downstairs; researched more places to live in Chicago and helped cook dinner. And it’s only 6pm. This sounds like a semi-productive day, no?
Well, actually, it isn’t the productivity that I was looking for. See, I was hoping read and re-read some amazing art and philosophy litature in the hope of researching a paper, which I’m hoping to have a first draft of my Friday. So far – very hard luck! It’s difficult. I’m such a huge procasinator.
Perhaps having an important aim is suffist to get you to do all of those banal items on your to do lists, done!
For example, on Sunday when I was – once again – trying to attempt to write this damn paper… and in pure smizz style I then paid all my bills, bought my plane tickets to Chicago and resubscribed to cineworld and contemplated my new future idea of stand up comedian. (material coming soon).
Do we need to set these goals in order to clean the house? would this be a negative thing?
Or perhaps i am just to much of multi-tasker. Perhaps the question I need to ask myself is – WHY CAN’T YOU FOCUS. These days I have to invest in sharpies to write FOCUS on my left arm. Am I the product of an over mediated society where i have to jump from one thing to the other rather than focusing my energies on one specific task. or has school and society made me like this?
Who know, but what I do know is that it is time for me to stop fucking about and really get some reading and writing down and ideas for my art practice in prep. for CHICAGO…. which is only T Minus 9 weeks! BOYEAH
