Confession: I am an odd mix.
I love goal setting, making lists, being disciplined, accomplishing tasks and being organized.
On the other hand, you will often find me messy, disorganized, scatter-brained, and procrastinating on several projects.
The conflict between these two categories is terrible. My "together" side wants it all together, as soon as possible. If it can't be done, I simply resign myself to the "not together" side -
put off those projects, leave the to-do's for another day, shove the mess in a corner, make some tea, and waste a couple hours on mindless internet surfing.
All or nothing, yes siree.
At least tonight it kindof got to me and I had to sort through baskets and clean a closet and scrub the toilet and answer emails and fill out a time-consuming but important form and organize my book shelves.
Organizing and cleaning is what I do when I'm putting off the more important things. Top on my list right now is to create a plan - and follow it - for some more in-depth Bible study, memorization, and reading.
But maybe I'll think about that tomorrow...
Tell me, do you have an inward control-freak-organizer and a laid-back-slacker doing battle with each other, or am I alone here?
If you're in my club, how do you find balance?
