I don't know if it's human nature, or just my nature, but whenever I have wonderful blocks of free time where I can exercise, stretch, tackle a project, connect, read something enlightening ... I DON'T WANT TO. There's a g-zillion articles on SP that are how-to's, but not many I see that address the don't-want-to's. It doesn't matter if I learn how to do something, if I can't galvanize into action.
I've been this way as long as I can remember, and I hit 65 next month. The more time I have, the less motivated I am. Give me some have-to's and put me on the clock, I'm there. However, it's more than just simple procrastination. I have lists in my phone on a memo app. Projects I want to do of all sizes. I just lose interest when I have plenty of time to work on them.
To make matters worse, I have the perfectionist start-to-finish mentality. The idea of starting something and not finishing it in the same session drives me buggy, so I don't start. Trying to break the project into components and doing it in blocks feels like unfinished, failed stuff.
It could be just plain ol' laziness. I don't know. I'd rather cruise the internet or channel surf than do anything productive when I have time.
Right now, the decision is being made for me. DH just finished a freelance job he's been working on all day and he wants to go fishing. Bleh. Sounds like work. Work in the cloudy, cold outdoors. Definitely social distancing, so there's that, but getting dressed in the right layers, packing my "fishing" go-bag, helping hook up the boat, launch the boat. And then later, loading the boat, putting up the boat. I'm tired already. Plus, the last half dozen times we've gone I've caught basically zip. I'd rather golf, but it's muddy and carts on path.
Better turn off Food Network, shut down my computer and get dressed.
