Five-Hundred Word Challenge 753: Busy or Lazy

There are times when a thing needs to be done, such as now, but you just don’t go ahead and do it until you’ve got some other things out of the way. Perhaps that is a form of procrastination, but sometimes it is also the effects of having an order in which things need to be done and thus doing them in that particular order. I can tell you right now that there are a lot of reviews of which I need to work on and try and get finished before the end of the day, but they aren’t getting done until I get this done because I want to get this out of the way first. Either that or I shall say that I need to get this out of the way first, which isn’t necessarily true, but it is something that I would like to pretend is the case.

Sometimes it isn’t good to be busy and have a lot of things that need to be done. Sometimes it is better to have a clear plate (so to speak, of course) and be able to not have to worry about having things that need to be done that you want to get done. Sometimes that is much better as it involves far less stress and less stress is a good thing more than it is a bad thing. However, unfortunately I do not seem to be able to operate that way most of the time. Kind of a blessing and kind of a curse; depends on how you look at it and I’m looking at it as a thing that I am currently involving myself in.

I do guess I like to be busy as being busy keeps me busy, but I think I also enjoy procrastination and laziness to too much of a degree to be something that is something someone may or may not consider healthy, but of course it is always a process of work to get out of habits that I find myself in that I also consider to be habits that I would much prefer not having as not having them means I get more (rather than less) done. Rather be on the doing of more than less. At the same time want to get everything done sooner rather than later so I can relax a bit more without the worry of having things on my proverbial plate that require time and effort to get out of the way. Want to be able to relax without the looming deadlines and all of that stuff.

So I guess what I am saying is that you should try to be more active and do the things than you should be lazy, though being lazy can have its own merits so long as you don’t have a lot of things to do. Better to do those things than not do those things, and so on and so forth.

Either that or find another option to pursue.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 04:59:38

Actually, I don’t know what I was trying to say. Maybe I was saying that sometimes it is good to be busy, but sometimes it is good to not be busy. Don’t know. I feel as though this bit of writing is more muddled than it should be if it is trying to say something with clarity.

Written at home.
