Procrastination - a Drabble

If you'd started that course you researched four years ago, studying part time, you'd be finished by now

I know

How proud you'd feel!

Yes, I know

And what a sense of accomplishment

That's true

And right now, you'd have the framed 'Certificate of Completion' on your wall

Yes, I know
but back then, I wasn't sure,
I was scared to make a decision, any decision in case I got it wrong.

What's wrong? What's right?

"The secret of getting ahead is getting started" a wise person said.

Sometimes it's better to begin in uncertainty than not to begin at all.



A drabble is a story told in 100 words. No more. No less.

No, not specifically. You're in really good company though. It's pretty crowded out there in procrastiLand.

Teehehee, but now's the time to bite the bullet and enrol :P

The secret of getting ahead is getting started...thank you for this assurance.

Thanks for visiting Liza. Sometimes it's good to be reminded of what we already know.

Nice drabble. It seems to echo my very thoughts on achieving my second Master's degree. :D

sue said...

Thanks Chary. Good on you for not only starting, but finishing...TWO Master's Degrees! If only I'd taken my own advice I'd have started, and possibly completed one by now ... but which one? :P

Helen Ginger said...

Ah, man, a drabble about me. I'm honored and slightly embarrassed about that. I'll start tomorrow.

sue said...

oh Helen, brilliant comment!

Teeheehe, and we all know tomorrow never comes don't we ;)
