Daffodil bulbs and Adirondack chairs.
What do the two have in common? Not a single solitary thing. Except that they are both projects that I purchased, with the best of intentions, that I have not completed. Heck I haven't even started them. Maybe that should be the jumping off point -- starting the project. Maybe I would be like a ball rolling down hill. Once I started I'd go faster. I'd pick up momentum. I'd go so fast that other projects would be sucked into the vortex of my productivity. My pride in my long put-off accomplishments would fuel the momentum. I'd spin with frenetic energy. Until the slope began to decrease. And then flatten. The momentum lost. Projects half complete.
The only thing worse than an unstarted project is a half finished project. So if unfinished is worse than unstarted, and I can't be certain of completion, then the only rational approach is not to start. Until I can be absolutely certain I'll finish. Right?
So I have four unfinished and unassembled Adirondack chairs that need to be stained a lovely shade of blue. I also have 9,345,783 daffodil bulbs that I have to get into the ground. Anyone want to help? Dad...?
