get what you want...

OK, so everyday when I boot up the computer I see this:

I got it here.

I picked it out because it's funny...the "close-upedness" of it...the coke bottle glasses. It's funny. I used to have the picture of one skeleton smacking another in the back of the head. Funny. No other reason.

Now though, whenever I see my desktop, it seems to be mocking me. Daring me. Challenging me to, you know, get what I want.

Problem is, I don't know what I want. Check that, I *do* know what I want but I want too many things. Not material possessions (of course there is a long list of those that I want as well) but things I want to do/be/see. My problem is two-fold.

1. In case you weren't aware, I am the most indecisive person I know (HENCE my post a couple down from here.) I have too many what-ifs and buts to logically decide between my alternatives. Which direction to take? I don't know, what if I pick the wrong one?

2. Motivation. Or lack thereof. I *can* get motivated...I guess my procrastination stems from the fact that I haven't set a clear goal for myself.

I am at a crossroads apparently...geez do I hate that phrase, seems appropriate here though...without getting into the specifics of my dilemma (because really, how long do you want to spend reading my rambling?) any suggestions on how to overcome my inhibitive proclivities?

btw, have I mentioned that I dig ellipses...and parentheses?

    Hehee. You said proclivities, but where's the rest? I'm flummoxed you didn't include them in your ramblings.

    You know I'm here to cheer you on, but do you think you need a big ol' push from me? as Nike would say...JUST DO IT!

  2. I can totally relate. I think it all stems from needing more naps. :)

    I wish wish wish I could give some advice but alas....I am so like that! Such a procrastinator....worse with age :(
    Also...I am the WORST decision maker!
    Good luck ;)
    That picture is pretty funny!!

    No advice from me "queen of procrastination". Lately I have been so unmotivated. I also know what I want. But having a hard time setting goals! I think it has alot to do with naps, like Shannon said! :) Also think you have to take it in baby steps. Just write down a few things and then just do one at a time. The whole picture can get too overwhelming!


  5. Totally, totally, TOTALLY hear you on this, Erica (just stumbled upon your blog, btw, woohoo!) So many interests + limited time + major indecision about what I really want + lack of drive = me, a victim of inertia, waiting to be pushed :)
