"I guess I have a lot of problems, so many that I don't have time to go into them all in detail. Suffice it to say I'm anal, obsessive, vain, quick to temper, overly introspective, lazy, judgmental, insecure, and self-righteous. Probably the most annoying thing about me is that I'm hugely opinionated. But I kind of make up for that by always being right."

Day 73: Never Put Off Till Tomorrow What You Can Do The Day After Tomorrow

My boys, Cooper and Jack, are starting school next Wednesday, so I've earmarked that day to finally start my "schedule." Whenever I want to "kick it into gear," or start a new project, or just get off my ass and be productive, I put it off until some clearly-defined temporal line of demarcation. New Year's Day would be the best example of this. "I'm going to go on a strict diet starting the first of the year." We all know how well that works.

I might tell myself that I'll start writing the script on the first of some month, or that I'll learn how to meditate after some construction has been completed on my house, or that I'll stop masturbating so much after hell freezes over.

Well, anyway, I figure it's about time I incorporated some of the crap I've been working on into my everyday life. So starting next Wednesday -- and God strike me dead if I don't make good on this (thank god he doesn't exits, huh?) -- my day should look like this:

7:30 write blog
8:00 walk
9:00 exercise
9:30 yoga
10:00 Tai Chi
10:30 meditate
11:00 read
12:00 lunch (free time)
1:00 chores (from to-do list)
2:00 "work" (on TV show, script, etc.)
6:00 done

I'll let you know how it goes -- i.e. when the whole thing goes to hell.
