That long pause was just to give that statement time to sink in. :)
Sometimes, I am lazy.
But every now and then, something isn't getting done and I suspect I am just procrastinating. That is the case with my volunteer work for the kids' school's auction committee. I felt like I just was lazy and not getting it done. But then I tried to get it done, and guess what? I was wrong!
I tried to visit the vendors on my list and figured out that there were two major roadblocks: 1) the vendors were physically not in parts of the city where I generally drive and 2) the businesses were not open at 8 a.m., the time I get to the city. I realized that I kept trying to get the visits done, but I was not getting it done because of timing and physical location. Basically, to get the visits done, I would have to take a special trip into the city.
So I revised my plan for getting the auction solicitations done. I spent a few minutes with Google, and wrote down the address and open hours of each business. (Note that once I knew the locations and times, I numbered the businesses in the most efficient order for visiting them. That way, I don't need to think about where to go next.)
I also checked my calendar and found out that, on Friday, I would be in the city most of the day anyway, because of a midday appointment. So I scheduled the visits on Friday.
Hopefully, this will work. Yes, doing research to prep for a project is quite Type A of me. But, hopefully, it will make the actual task relaxing and more Type B. I'm pretty lazy, after all, and now I just have to follow a checklist instead of thinking. Lazy wins!
