Doing Everything Except What You’re Supposed to be Doing

I did it again.  I’ve been trying to commit myself to writing more often, and I did it again.  I went looking for a new WordPress theme.  If you really think about it, it’s really the dumbest thing – but I really do care about how my blog looks.  And every now and then, I feel like it gets a little old.  A little dated.  And then the K-Hole into googling “Best Free Responsive WordPress Themes” starts and totally sucks up all my writing time.

I’m sure everyone does a lot of this in their lives.  It’s not really the fact that we don’t want to do what we’re supposed to do, we just kind of get lost in the procrastination of it all.  Focus is a precious resource and it takes a lot of discipline to spend it wisely.  I’ve also seen it happen at a lot of companies.  I feel like virtually every company that I’ve worked for has had a level of wheel spinning, which always irritates the crap out of me.  But here I am, just googling away.

May 2014 be the year of doing the right things.
