Somehow, back in September, back when I committed to this undertaking, a “year-end” deadline didn’t seem so daunting. When I wrote the challenge in my diary, in red, right after the words: “I will,” it seemed like such an easy thing to do.
Seems kind of crazy to make a resolution in the Fall with a December 31 expiration date. Those are usually saved for the first days of the new year, when there are more than 350 other days to accomplish anything I want to set my mind to.
But now I’ve gone and made a very specific promise to myself to finish a project by the end of the year, and here, with just a couple of days to go, we are.
I hate to admit I’m a sucker for time constraints and pressure but I am. Perhaps I’m not a procrastinator at all, just a chick that typically performs real well with a wildly looming deadline. Well, I’ve got one. A big one. Tick, tock.
It’s a personal put-up or shut-up moment for me – except for a very few, no one even knows I made the commitment. And I’m blessed, no one but me will be disappointed and I’m not at risk for letting anyone down.
It’s just me and me. Where the rubber meets the road. A real metal-tester.
Ooooh, whee! This New Year’s Eve promises to be like none other!
I’m hoping like mad that the only ball that’s dropped is in Times Square!
