There are always times when you are on such a good streak with your blogging or any writing really. But after a few days or even weeks of constant ideas, for me there always seems to be a time where I just feel disinterested.
And it’s not really because I am out of ideas. I know that sometimes when I get feeling this way, I will hit “New Post” type in the title of the idea I have for a post and then leave it so that I can write it later, cause I just don’t feel like writing it now.
Or when I am writing in a book that I am thinking about writing. I’m sorry, I am one of those lame people who always has an idea for a book. I just really don’t like to talk about it that much.
Anyways, whenever I start writing in one of the many books that I start and even if I finish them nothing will happen, I will get on these good streaks where for hours I can sit and write like nobodies business.
Honestly, it’s no bodies business how I can write.
But then what happens is I will finish a chapter and it’s like I have to stop. Not because I don’t know what comes next, but just the end of a chapter is the perfect place to break. But my breaks last a week or more. And pushing myself is not something I’m into.
Here’s my theory. I think I’m a procrastinator. Some of us are just born to be that way. Personality probably. OR genetics. You can blame all of your problems on genetics.
But I’m not a full on lazy as hell procrastinator. I’m more like a trying not to be but totally is procrastinator. And no matter how much I try not to be that way, sometimes procrastination wins.
And you can take that to the bank.
I actually read a blog post about this yesterday. It taught me two things:
- People in business are crazy
- I need spell check to spell millionaire
Okay, this seems really unfair to the millionaire. Like everyone is wanting to get with him/her simply because they have a lot of money. I have never run that way, as in money isn’t a deciding factor, so I don’t really understand this type of thinking.
The whole post was about how to dress and act more successful than you are. Basically to look and do things like you have money, when you are really on a budget. So eventually you can marry a millionaire because you look like you are a millionaire too.
But why should it matter?
One thing I have learned while being in business is that I’m not cut out for business. By business I mean a sales type business. There are so many hidden rules and so many ways to offend people. It’s like everyone in business is looking to be offended.
There is also no room for humor or creativity, in most cases, because this can be found offensive as well. And you can give up on wearing what you want to wear.
But I think the thing that has bothered me the most about business/sales environment is the fact that when you meet with people who are actually millionaires (which I have multiple times), they are never satisfied. They are always looking for ways to make more money. Everything they do is about making more money, when they already make a ton. Most of the time, they are very frugal, so they don’t even really enjoy the money when they have it.
What is the point to that?
Anyways, the author of this book “How to Marry A Millionaire” tried to play it up like it was about gaining confidence and being a better person. But basically what this book tells you to do is be a gold digger, but not look like you are being a gold digger.
What a stupid book. I WANT THOSE TREES BACK!
