Procrastination and all the other “TION” words


I have been procrastinating all morning. It is not that I don’t actually want to write or go to the gym or do all the other things on my to do list. On the contrary, I am already in my workout clothes and to me that is half the battle. It’s just I have so many things that I could write about that I cannot decide on one particular topic and focus my energy. So instead I have been surfing the web, reading other blogs and staring out my office window at the rainy world outside. Wow I never noticed how the rain makes the world look all blurry… or maybe that is just me, after all I am unfocused today.

This has been happening to me a lot lately. I have so much I want to talk about, explore and think through that I just don’t know where to begin. So instead of just buckling down and diving into it all… I procrastinate, and push it all aside. This is the very same habit that I yell at my kids for doing. Hmmm… ever notice that the things that drive us the most crazy in our kids are the things we ourselves do?

I think I have a TION problem. ProcrastinaTION, RelaxaTION, expectaTION, organizaTION, exploraTION, multiplicaTION… sorry I got carried away there. But seriously… look at the pattern. All the things that have been the focus of my writing lately (minus the multiplication… no pun intended there) end in TION. If I am going to focus my concentraTION on TION words perhaps I should try focusing on the more positive ones like admiraTION, beautificaTION, communicaTION, devoTION… I think you get the picture.

Well this certainly was not the post I set out to write today. ProscrastinaTION innovaTION at it’s best. Sorry… I think I will go to the gym now.
