Another post that has nothing to do with the Intenral Arts - but we don't have a Psychology/Philosophy forum so here goes

How many of us are guilty of playing the When - Then game?

Many people play the "When / Then" game.

WHEN this happens THEN I'll do it.
WHEN I get this THEN I'll do that.
WHEN so and so does this THEN I'll do that.

WHEN is NOW

I am a typical teenage procrastinator and I find myself waiting for certain situations to take action - actually becoming a more aggressive person in general as far as things I need to have accomplished was one of my new years resolutions .

Try "Assertive" instead of "Aggressive" and you'll be on the right track

I am guilty of that all the time. I am working to overcome this but it is a constant struggle. There will always be a tomorrow. It's so much easier to acknowledge a problem than to fix it! aaaaaaaa Even though the first step is just as important.

I never knew it was considered a game

hey well I sometimes do that but not always so it isn't bad if you do it once in a while.

The first step is the hardest. For me, planning what I am going to do sometimes takes much longer than what I am actually doing...it can take you 30 minutes to read directions to put together a birdhouse and only 15 minutes to actually do it.

And it takes Months of rigorous training to prepare for the big fight, that is often over within an hour at max.

YODA, I do what you said sometimes, only when whatever the second thing would be, would be better off with the first done beforehand. If you get my drift
