Wants, Needs, Excuses & Procrastination

Yes.  I procrastinate.  I either invent excuses, or allow them to get in the way of what I really want to do.

For example, I have a small RC helicopter that I really want to fix and get to flying again.  Got it a few years ago, and of couse it was busted up by my boys.  It still works, but the runners are a bit splayed and for some reason it doesn’t take off diagonally, but vertically.  There’s a hobby shop a short walk from my house in Utah that might have some of the parts I need, but I haven’t even taken the time to visit it.

But no, I need to cook.  I need to clean.  I need to do laundry.  I need to work on Eventida.  I need to learning-coach the boys.  And then after all that,  I need to keep up with my favorite TV shows.  I need to play video games in order to unwind.  I need to finish that e-book I’m reading.

Needs become excuses, and needs precede desire.  Always.

I want to start running as a form of exercise.  Or biking.  I prefer biking, but I need a bike – the girly bike I currently have access to sucks and hurts my back because it’s too small for me.

I want to write something everyday.  I need time, though, and absolutely no distractions nor interruptions.

I want to start a deaf-friendly ATV touring business in Southern Utah.  I need an ATV so I can start exploring and learning the lay of the land.

I want to be rich.  I need more money, though.

One thing at a time, and I guess I should start with the helicopter.  But if I fix the helicopter, will it become yet another excuse?

I want to continue writing all day, but I need to go and do other things.  Like now.


Insert a long drawn out biographical statement that tells you absolutely nothing about who I really am here.
