Stop Spanking The Hourglass


Broken Hourglass

It’s not you. It’s me.

I have no doubt this will sound silly to you. After all, you’re not only good-looking, but smart and resourceful as well.

And then there’s me.

After finishing another day of being completely busy but getting little done on my actual to-do list, it occurred to me (after 40 years).

“Tim, maybe you should schedule your to-do stuff on your calendar. I mean you go to the trouble of using your fancy-schmancy online to-do list thingie that estimates how long each dadgum thing will take.

“Make appointments with your to-dos, meathead.

Not a bad idea – that.

Furthermore, I didn’t have the three calendar appointments yesterday on said fancy-schmancy to-do list.

I know. I know. I told you: This would all sound silly to you.

I’m going to stop spanking the hourglass.

I’m going to put my to-do’s on the calendar.

I’m going to put my appointments on my to-do list.

What gets scheduled, gets done. Right?

I’m sure you already do this. Thank you for keeping your mockery to a minimum. Any resemblance to you or anyone you know is purely coincidental.
