Recently I have been making decisions on a whim. 4 days ago I decided I wanted a boat, like the one pictured. 3 days ago I started learning for my boating licence (PCOC). 1 day ago I passed it. Today I booked my first sailing lesson. I will buy a boat either this or next summer, depending on a few factors including storage and savings. I am happy that I haven’t procrastinated on this. Procrastination is a killer. Here is a poem I wrote about it.
I could have been an Olympian,
But I didn’t start to run.
I could have been a richer man,
But a job search isn’t fun!
I could have made a real friend,
But couldn’t be bothered to talk,
I could have climbed the mountain,
But I didn’t fancy the walk.
I could have had a better life,
He said on his deathbed,
I wish I hadn’t wasted time,
Do something, not nothing my friend.
