Thoughts to Ponder

When you have too many things to do during the evenings, is it better to:

A. Write down everything you want to accomplish onto a list in Excel, tinker around to create a formula where you assign each task a level of importance, a deadline, and then based on the formula, create a graph that shows you, relative to each task, how much time you should spend on each item, tinker around some more to turn your graph into a pie chart, see if you can figure out how to change the colors and fonts so that your graph looks real pretty, when completed with your work of art, attempt printing it up, only to realize you are out of paper, go to the nearest Office Max so you can buy paper to print up your pretty graph, realize after you get home that the printer is actually low on ink as well, and decide screw it, you can draw a better graph than that anyhow if you can just find the colored pencils and graph paper from your last math class, taken, oh perhaps five years ago, dig around in box of college textbooks, discover your social psychology textbook and ultimately spend the rest of the evening remembering how you used to learn all sorts of beautiful theories that explained why people do what they do, but now in the real world that college degree has gone towards entering very fascinating numbers into a very fascinating spreadsheet all day, with the occasional interruption when someone calls to complain about something.

OR

B. Screw it all, blog instead, and not even about those books sitting in the "Read but Not Reviewed Yet" pile.

Really, I'm waiting for an opinion on this one.

Screw it all and blog!!! That's exactly what I'm doing!!! :)

You crack me up.

Trish said...

Although sadly Option A does sound like something I would do...

Chayenne said...

Option A, while looking good on paper, will really just bring you farther away from accomplishing anything. Trust me, I speak from experience. =P

Susan said...

Option B! go for Option B! Option A frankly sounds like an option from Hell.

Alice Teh said...

Despite being a PA and all, Option A is too much work... Ya, I'd go for Option B anytime. Or, simple paper and pen works for me too. Just strike it out when everything I set out to do is done. Or burn the paper if nothing gets done. Hehe...

Eva said...

Definitely B!!! And perhaps consider locking Excel away for awhile...

Rhinoa said...

Yeah just blog instead even though you don't get the pretty chart.

Nymeth said...

I think I'd go with b) :P

LOL - Excel AND a trip to the office supply store?
.....(swoon)

A - definitely A

Debi said...

Okay, neither choice is particularly "productive" so let's look at which is actually more fun. Now it gets tough...

Sorry, I'm no help whatsoever.

Option A sounds good, but too much work to do! I'll go with Option B, just like the others. :)
