Laziness is my Enemy
Today I had the opportunity to help someone complete a job. Instead, I chose not to. I chose not to because it would have been at least 5 hours on the road for me. A few years back I had to drive that commute every day. I really got tired of driving up and down the road. Should I have went today? Probably so. It’s not every day that I have to make that commute now, and I would have been helping someone out of a bind. My laziness is my enemy. The irony is that, now I have nothing to do, and I wish that I had went. Did I learn my lesson from this day of laziness? Yes, I did. Next time that I’m giving the opportunity to do something, I’m going to do it. Regardless of the fact it may be out of my way.
I have to accept the decision I made anyway and enjoy this day. I have accepted that I made a mistake in my decision. In reality that is a really long trip to make. The person that needed me, probably didn’t need me that bad after all. Now I’m just trying to make myself feel better about not going.
EDIT: A couple hours later I got a phone call from the person that I was supposed to go with. They said that they had to quit the job early due to a tile guy needing to do some work. It turns out that I made a good decision after all. If I had went down there, I would have wasted a day.
