Breaking Resolutions

I'm off to break one of my New Year's Resolutions: to procrastinate. Yes, I'm dreadfully ashamed that I can not bear it any longer. I have kept my promise long enough today I have to break it.

I have been doing an online management program. Yes, it is as boring as it sounds. Five of the six courses in the program have been completed. One remains taunting and teasing me. I have done about half of it. It is a fine and uplifting course in Inventory Management and Control. It isn't that controlling inventory is difficult but on paper they sure want you think you need to know more than pluses and minuses. I'm sure it was someone with about a dozen letters after their name.

Today, I am bound and determined to put this nagging course behind me. So, that tomorrow I have a clean conscience and can start on the other 5 million half-finished projects I have. I love jumping into something and getting the bulk done but when it comes to the fine, boring, tedious details I have a slight tendency to get distracted and move on to something more exciting. I probably need to delve into that more because I think it applies to my relationships as well.

Oh, well. I'm off to the library so I can pretend to concentrate without the laundry, cooking, kids, dogs, and blogs interrupting and tempting me.
