Meet the New Ten Weeks, Same as the Old Ten Weeks

by Chris McGinty (According To Whim .com)

Well folks, it is new ten weeks time again. I’m not sure that I really want to waste everybody’s time by listing all of our goals again, since they look so much like the last go round, and the go round before that. Yeah, we sort of suck at this. Oh well chin up. Not you. Me. I’m at work, and I don’t want to nod off and fall asleep.

So what’s going to be different this time? I’m pretty sure life didn’t call and say that it would back off for a while so that we could get some stuff done. So what then? Just trying to figure out the magic formula for goal attainment.

If I had to guess, it’s just simply controlling what you can control. I know that the biggest issue that I ever have is that when I have time that is simply mine to do with however I want, I don’t use that time wisely. Sadly, I have an abundance of that time, when I really examine my life. Maybe that’s what will be different. Maybe I’ll recognize my time as my time, and use it well. I really have nothing important to do between now and October 3, 2010. Well, there are a few things, but those things are on my list of goals, so they’ll be taken care of. Important things can be taken care of, but when I’m not taking care of important things, I have time that is mine, and I need to treat it as time that is mine.

I feel like ten weeks from now, I’ll be standing up like some sort of 12-step program. I’ll stand up, say my name, and then say, “I’m ten-weeks straight as not goofing off goes.” I’ll still be using a false name though, even though we’re not supposed to talk about anything that is said in group, outside of group. I’m thinking something like Chris. That’s a good alias.

Those of you who are eagerly awaiting me posting up “Two Hundred and Counting,” which I think consists of me, it’s obviously running late. This last go round (if “go round” was the word of the day we be screaming and having a good ol’ time) we wrote some pretty sizable posts. I’m getting through about two posts a half hour. I’ve estimated that I still have about nine hours worth of work. All for one post. Maybe I’m crazy. But in spite of it taking so long, I’ve had a good time reading and reviewing. I just wish I had gotten started a little sooner. As of this writing, there is not a post up for Monday, but as soon as I’m done with the reviews, it will be up there.
