Routine, Control and Pace 21 April 2006

Posted by Sasha in Quotes, The Brooder.

If everything seems under control,
you’re not going fast enough.
Mario Andretti

With what’s been happening in my life right now and how I normally handle things, this quote certainly nudged me to consciousness and made me think about the pace I should have in terms of living this life.

I’m totally OC about certain things. I like lists, order, rules [ah, well — sometimes.. ;)], and routines. Yes. I am somewhat organised. I always find myself establishing a routine.

For example, let me tell you about the routine I’ve somehow established for a typical day:

  • Wake up
  • Morning toiletries [not too graphic, eh?]
  • Turn on the PC
  • Make tea while I wait for the PC to boot
  • Yosi break [cigarettes. heh.]
  • Open Outlook and 3 Mozilla browsers [Yay for broadband!]
  • 1st Browser: Open tabs for Gmail, The Parody, Tops 2 Bottoms, Light the Torch, and Dating Dames
  • 2nd Browser: Open tabs for 55 Fiction, b5media, and all 4 b5 blogs stats
  • 3rd Browser: Open tabs for variable sites, i.e. b5 forum, Wikipedia, LTT related sites, etc.
  • Work for approximately 5-6 hours online with occasional food and drinks thrown in between. 😀
  • Have dinner [I’ll miss my sister’s roast dinners…]
  • Late night cigarette sessions out the front [I’ll miss this, too…]
  • Quiet time
  • Sleep

No. I’m not kidding. :p

Well, okay.. there’s that occasional interruption or variation but generally that’s how my days have been like, though, winds of change will blow me toward a different direction soon.

Anyway, I’d like to have that feeling of control over things. If or when there’s something that I don’t know, I’d try my best to learn it. Self-sufficient? Dunno. Just one of my eccentricities, I guess.

If I am to gauge the current pace, I’d say I’m definitely not slacking. I really can’t quantify the stuff that has gone haywire. Things aren’t under control — most definitely. It’s all good though. I’m not really in a hurry now, am I? I’m just treading the path c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y and continue believing that good things come to those who wait. I’ll weather the storm. 😉
