Jane E posed a question in a post: “why can’t I
regulate myself? Why do I start a thing and HAVE to finish it?”
I like her answer: “because I’m bonkers!”
Well, I can’t claim to be bonkers in the same way, as I certainly have my share of unfinished projects, but I do feel
like I don’t “regulate” myself well. I’ve taken to keeping track of how much
time I spend doing what. It helps me to make a better to-do list. I’m more
reasonable in how much I can accomplish and better at seeing what is most
important. If that’s bonkers, I’ll gladly wear that label.
