  • Fit and start, stutter and stumble, stall. Leap and bound, race and collapse, anxiously ponder my course. Two steps forward, and one back. This seems to be the way I live my life.

    I do really well, stay focused, and work on acheiving a particular goal. Then I trip up, slack off, fall back into my old ways, and get stuck in a rut. I always manage to pull myself up and get going again, but I can't help but think of how much time and energy I wasted just trying to get back on track, when I could have been using those resources to get closer to my goal.

    Some may say that this is just how life is, but I see this way of being as a character flaw. The hare syndrome, when I really want to be like the tortoise. It feels unhealthy, wasteful, draining, and stressful. Is any one else like this? Is this just who I am, or is it something I need to change?
