I just spent a few minutes listing all the things I need to do next week, and all the things I want to do, and those happy few which fall into both categories.
Now I'm tired just thinking about it.
And having written that list I still haven't started on any of the things which need to be done today.
Because my mind is already in next week. (Apart from the large portion of it which is already in the weekend.)
Mostly I want to play today, and not write meaningful prose. But that's what I am being paid to do today, so I'd better get on with it.
I like ticking things off a To Do list, but sometimes making a long one backfires slightly.
