- Someday Lesson: Someday Syndrome sneaks up on even those who are the most on guard against it.
That’s right. I’m talking about me.
Yesterday, thanks to the support of an amazing group of people, I realized that I’ve been suffering from a touch of I’ll Get Around To It Someday.
It’d be easy to blame the Canadian vacation. After all, since getting back home, I’ve been a lot slower answering emails (i.e., almost not at all). I got off to a bang on my novel, but have now almost abandoned it. Nor have I been working on the next part of the Someday Syndrome cure.
About the only Someday I’ve conquered is starting a running program, but that’s only because I’d gotten back into a not-sleeping-from-lack-of-exercise state and I just had to start moving more.
In other words, the past few weeks, I’ve been in a funk and this week it became a full-on wallow. But instead of indulging my wallow in my normal fashion, I reached out and found (in alphabetical order) Brett, Crista, Elaine, James, James & Harry, Kelly, Naomi, and the Urban Panther (well, and Raul of course).
And with all that support, how could I not overcome procrastination caused by Someday Syndrome? So, starting today, look for a more energetic, Someday-busting Alex (although you won’t actually see me being more energetic because most of the work I’m gong to be doing is behind the scenes 😉 ).
When (thanks to everyone’s assistance) I’m rich and famous, I am so showering my support network with lots of pretty gifts. In the meantime, any time one of them needs a shoulder to cry on, an ear to vent to, or a foot for a butt-kicking, I am so there.
So tell me, when doing big Tigger bounces of gratitude, how do you show it?
