Hey Ya’ll. Carter Parton Rogers here. Well guess what? Right now I need to be workin’ on my music and my writing for my Hey Hear Me Now Holiday Variety Hour. But guess what I’ve been up to instead.
I started today with a real go-getter mindset, goals to accomplish, writing timer turned on, ideas ready to be written out…
Did ya’ll notice that page is blank. I did admire how pretty my blue pen looked against the white paper.
Then I looked up and noticed my guitar looked a little dusty, so I dusted it…
Dusting made me hungry, so I decided to bake something…
I thought the perfect time to continue writing would be while things were bakin’ in the oven. So I sat down to write. And then remembered I wanted to count my pennies. If you’re gonna count your pennies, do it by hand, don’t use one of those electronic countin’ things because well the machine does it too fast. You really want to take your time. I have 264 loose pennies. I counted three times. I think it’s important to triple check your work.
Since I was in a countin’ mood I thought I’d count the strings on my guitar. There are six ya’ll. There’s really no need to count. But I did anyway.
From a distance I saw my potatoes on the counter so I got up and looked at them for a while thinking I should probably cook them soon. Then I read a few of my cookbooks to see what recipe sounded good.
Ding! the oven timer went off. The cookies were ready!…
But I decided I was really hungry for a sandwich. So I checked the refrigerator for sandwich makings, the makings of which I knew I did not have but I thought I’d look anyway which led me to organizin’ my refrigerator.
Refrigerator organized. Off to the sandwich shop I went! I ate my sandwich at the sandwich shop because well, why bring it home when I could put in a good hour of sitting at a sandwich shop. On my way home I got real energized to finish workin’ on my show.
When I got home I got all set up again with my pen and paper and my go-getter mindset. After a few moments I realized I was just staring. At the wall. This wall…
Then I remembered I have some chocolate. So I looked at my bowls of candy and tried to decide which kind I wanted. I could not decide…
So I ate an orange instead. I peeled it very carefully. Took my sweet time. Then enjoyed all the pieces while watching photos of flowers scroll on the television screensaver.
When I took the bowl my orange was in to the kitchen this box caught my eye. So I read it. There’s a lot of information on a food label. You can use up a good 10 minutes reading a food label and thinking about the food in that food.
What a day. I decided to wake myself up with a shower. So I took a shower…
And then I took a nap.
I hope these Procrastination Methods are as comfortin’ to you as they have been for me.
I also hope to see ya’ll at my Holiday Variety Hour on December 14th…more info and RSVP here. I will finish writing it. There will be a show to enjoy. I will be prepared. I just know it! I know it because it’s written down on my goals list.
