For me, there has to be something 'to' the journey. A method to the madness otherwise, otherwise I flail.
If I have an open-ended amount of time, I don't do well....I procrastinate.....I get distracted by shiny things.
I know this about myself and while I hate it, I've come to accept it, It's just who I am.
This doesn't mean I don't enjoy free time, because I do. But too much free time? Too much expanse without a final destination? To me, that is well.....'yawn'.
What about you? Do you enjoy deadlines? Goals etc?
