William James Quote

“Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.”~William James

Unlike almost all of the other courses I have taken during my college career, both undergrad and graduate, my last class, Strategic Management, is proving to be the most challenging.  As my instructor has repeated many times in class, it’s not necessarily the work that’s difficult, but more the discipline to keep up with the course load when 95% of the graded work is not due until the end of the semester.

For perpetual procrastinators, like myself, this is not a good thing.  It’s not necessarily that I purposely procrastinate, it’s just that I try to do too many things at once – so much so that sometimes it means a lot of a little is actually getting done and no tasks are fully completed.  I guess this is an occupational hazard as a full time working mom of a five year old and one year old (and sometimes 33 year old).

Take this post, for example.  I should be posting my SWOT analysis for our group project: The Gap, Inc., but instead I am updating my blog with a quote.  (Although, I’d like to say it’s warming me up for my first official, important post – because it will be graded).  So, with that, I will close this post with a quote that says it best: “The best way to get something done is to begin.” ~Author Unknown.
