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.
