we’re comfortable with things not being finished … (audio)

i recorded a podcast this morning about getting shit done. Or really, it’s about why we often do something to about 89% completion and then stop … OK, so maybe it’s an audio about why we don’t finish stuff. As boozers we’re used to things being wacky, a bit chaotic … so what do you do once you get sober?

The full length podcast is 17.5 minutes long; here’s a 2 minute extract from part-way through. Once you listen, you can post a comment below…

I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

  • So true. I think we’re subconsciously creating the chaos we’re used to, as you say. My thing is: I procrastinate and leave things to the last minute, then have to do them in a mad panic. I still do this even now I’m sober. Although only about 20% of the time these days. It’s an extension of non-self-care. We like being naughty, but actually, we’re only doing ourselves over, nobody else. I love the saying ‘Procrastination is like masturbation. In the end, we only wind up screwing ourselves.’
