These show notes have been in draft form for a couple days now. The episode itself was recorded the day after I wanted to publish it. And here we are. Still just now getting ready to publish. I think it's safe to say... we all land in this boat sometimes, yeah?
I had a whole set of notes typed up and ready to go for this episode. I hunkered down, did my best to focus, and cranked it out. I had a whole, somewhat inspiring thing written about delaying and doing things "tomorrow. I talked about intent, and how we end up in this position. I even called myself out and said "damn it all, we're gonna get this right!".
It's Sunday afternoon. This podcast episode... #59... was supposed to be published 3 days ago. This past THURSDAY. And yet, here I sit. At 4:30 on Sunday afternoon... retyping the show notes and getting ready to publish it. Again, to be fair, I had MEANT to publish yesterday. I hit "publish" and everything. But my wifi was disconnected and all the copy disappeared. You ever write a paper in school and accidentally close the window without saving? Paragraphs upon paragraphs... maybe even whole PAGES of your document... gone. Yeah... not the sort of thing that gets you amped up. I tried to re-write what I had... but at that point... it's so frustrating you just can't. So I said I'd come back to it later.
Later... Tomorrow... they seem like a really fantastic time, right? Right now I'm so frustrated... or upset... or overwhelmed... or overworked... or WHATEVER. But tomorrow... well, tomorrow I won't feel that way anymore. TOMORROW I can get this thing done!
Unfortunately, Tomorrow isn't as shiny and infallible as we make it out to be. As a matter of fact, there's quite a few large problems with Tomorrow... not the least of which is the fact that it often doesn't actually come. And this, my friends... is the discussion at hand. The grass isn't always greener on the other side...
