If only I could do one thing but to be honest I just couldn't be bothered

Blog Sunday 9/4/23


Well, it's a Sunday afternoon, and I found myself in a right proper fugg.

You know, that feeling where you're just unsure what to do with yourself?


I'd been meaning to write this blog post for a while now, but every time I sat down to do it,

I found myself getting distracted by all sorts of other things.


I reckon part of the problem is that I've been putting it off for so long that it's become this big, daunting task in my head.

But I've got a degree in Physics, for crying out loud! If I can figure out quantum mechanics, surely I can write a simple blog post.


So, I decided to take a leaf out of my own book and apply some of the principles of hillwalking to my writing.

Just like when you're hiking up a big hill, it's important to break the task down into smaller, more manageable chunks.


First, I set myself a clear goal: to write this blog post. Then, I broke that down into smaller tasks, like coming up with a title and writing an introduction.

Once I had those done,

I could move on to the next step.


I also made sure to give myself regular breaks, just like when you're hiking.

Every time I finished a section of the post,

I'd take a few minutes to stretch my legs or make a cuppa.

It might not seem like much, but those little breaks can really help to keep you focused.


Finally, I reminded myself that it's okay to make mistakes.

Just like when you're hiking, you might take a wrong turn or stumble over a rock.


But that doesn't mean you should give up!

You just need to pick yourself up and keep going.


And that's how I overcame the Sunday afternoon fugg and procrastination to write this post.

By applying the principles of hillwalking - breaking the task down into smaller chunks, taking regular breaks, and accepting that mistakes happen -, I was able to get it done.


Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to tackle the next hill.



Only thats not how it happened at all. As i lay there slumped on the sofa, arms hanging down and feet up,

I had an idea.


Wouldn't it be fun if I could get some one else or

maybe some thing else

to write my post.


Thats what I did, I got a Chatbot to write my blog for me.

Apart from that little confession.

It was fun and making something fun is sometimes all we need to motivate us to get a task done.
