Do you make decisions easily or do you overthink everything?
I am the greatest procrastinator. I have to think everything over so carefully that by the time I am done I have missed the opportunity more often than not. Or I have decided that it’s too hard and not for me altogether.
In an attempt to regain my spontaneity in the last couple of weeks I have been jumping at every opportunity that comes my way and speaks to me on some level (as long as it doesn’t cost thousands of dollars). Without thinking. Without outlining the pros and cons. Without even researching it. Here is what I have gotten up to:
1) I bought two books only because other bloggers recommended them (and it was my very first visit to one of those blogs). Now this may not seem like a very hard decision to you, but I am usually very selective with books I read and buy. Because my time is so limited, I find it very disappointing to get to the middle of the book and then realise that I didn’t want to read this book in the first place. (More on the books I bought will come later, they deserve a separate post. Or a dozen of posts.)
2) I applied for a home-based job. I wasn’t even looking for a job and never mind that I am already struggling to find 10 hours a week for my current contract work. But after reading the ad I knew immediately that it was a job for me. The practicalities? I can work on that later.
3) I signed up for a Creativity Boot Camp (yes, another attempt to fit more into the time that I don’t have). I know nothing about this training, except that Jamie from Lyrical Journey is a special guest at this event and I love where her creativity is taking her.
If you want to join me at the boot camp, Jamie is giving you the chance to win a spot. But you have to act fast, this giveaway is closing tomorrow. So please head over to Lyrical Journey to enter and remember to say ‘hi’ for me!
