Failure to Launch Syndrome
I suffer from failure to launch syndrome. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s what it sounds like: it’s the inability to start something. The something in this case could be anything. A new book. A new project. A new day. I’ve always battled this syndrome (if it’s even fair to call it a syndrome), but how much has it slowed me down?
The answer: who knows. I wouldn’t even know how to measure such a cryptic value, leaden with so many variables and factors. But I know that it has slowed me down. And I think that’s enough knowledge to compel me to ﬁght it a little harder. Because I don’t want anything to slow me down; I want to jettison sluggishness and crush obstacles and projects alike. Still, I often feel as though I’m falling behind before I’ve even started.
But at least I’m aware, right? I hope that’s enough of a start.
