I am sitting here hunched over my laptop as my order arrives at my workstation. Night has started to descend, and they have started switching off most of the lights in the building. I am one of the few souls still in office.
I am over-worked, stressed out of mind and my frustration levels are approaching saturation point! I have a client presentation to finish by tomorrow and project report to hand in to my boss first thing next morning. Oh, and it doesn’t help that I have reached a complete road-block with both these tasks
I take a sip of my Iced Tea. Aaaahh. I exhale wistfully, looking down at my glass. There it stood, completely chilled, calm, in a total state of total peace. Completely contrasting my current state.
I stare at my blank screen, waiting for some sort of inspiration to hit me.
It doesn’t take too long. Too long for me to get distracted, that is.
I once again fall prey to my old friend, Procrastination.
I plug in my earphones, open my playlist and start my mindless surfing of the Internet, accompanied of course by regular slurps on my Iced Tea.
Half an hour later, as I reached the end of my glass, I closed my browser and am once again greeted by the blank screen. It doesn’t seem so daunting and scary now.
I don’t know if it was the Iced Tea or the music, but I suddenly feel more refreshed and rejuvenated than ever before!
It’s a simple fact that most people choose to ignore. The most important thing required to win the race are the pit stops.
You know, on second thoughts, it must have definitely been the Iced Tea.
And now if you’ll excuse me, I have a ton of work to finish.
