FYI - Today's post is a little Monday rant. I'll understand if you don't want to hang around today. If you do, maybe you can relate or commiserate?
I'm writing this as a way of building toward a to-do list of sorts so maybe you can relate to that too?
I haven't blogged in a while. I feel like I've blown a great opportunity to grab some new readers and connect with new folks. Maybe not. I hope not. As usual I may be thinking too much. (A big thank you to Nate Riggs for that by the way. I feel very fortunate to have had that opportunity.)
More upside? After today's rant post - I promise a blog post on every topic I bring up today as part of my rant. Well, at least the ones I think might make a good story.
You see, once again here it is Monday morning and I find myself behind. Behind on replying to messages, behind on replying to emails, behind on - well still behind on things from before Golf for Joy, and many, many more...
Sometimes it seems like I spend my entire life catching up, and the cycle continues on and on.
If I do get time to focus on something, it seems something ALWAYS takes my attention elsewhere. Granted, that's not always a bad thing, like when I became obsessed with the television show Bones and wanted to see all the re-runs I could before the season premiere. More often, however it's because I have to tend to something silly.
Like the Blackberry fiasco. (That might even be two blog posts.)
It will especially turn into two posts if I talk about being tired of poor customer service, but that might be a post all by itself.
Or a broken T.V.
Or any number of things that just seem to pop up out of nowhere, and turn into hours and hours of time suckers.
Like Vista and connectivity issues - no Mom it's not just your computer...
Like tires for my truck.
Paying bills and juggling cash. I'm tired of playing by the rules they, (i.e. banks and mortgage companies and such) put in place and then having them change the rules, seemingly on a whim. (I know it's the economy, but this is a rant remember...)
So, I have to find a turning point, a positive if you will.
One positive is that part of the reason I am behind is the presentation I was fortunate enough to be able to give at Job Help Day at the Library last week.
Another is that I got to spend the day Saturday playing golf with my friends and enjoying college football for the balance of the evening.
Okay, we do watch college football every week, but the golf was a nice bonus. Though I actually played very poorly, and we started the round in the rain, I was still happy to get out.
There's just something about being on the course with your friends, watching one of them shoot his best round ever, obviously happy as heck about it - and you can see the joy in his face.
Good job Dave!
I've got to get back to the to do list now...
What are you all working on?
Or - if you want - tell me what you're tired of...
