There are clearly people out there that do way more stuff than me. So, how do those people keep all of their stuff balanced? I feel like if you asked me at any given moment of any given day, “what’s going on?” I could rattle off a good 10-15 things that are on my “to-do” list. Everyday, I do TONS of stuff but at the end of the day, I always feel the same. I feel like I haven’t accomplished anything.
There’s “Radio” stuff, like station visits/appearances that are planned over the next 2 weeks, there’s this song I’ve been trying to write for 2 days to sing on the air and even though its going to just be 90 seconds long, I can’t seem to finish it. There’s “Bar” stuff like college football game plans and things to get ready for various events. Ok, that’s kind of vague. Specifically, where do I call to get a Motorcycle escort for a college team mascot that is visiting my bar one week from today? And the Mascot is a 3000 pound steer! I’m sure you have had that problem before, right??? There’s personal stuff like (planning) What should I do for my birthday this year? I was going to try to go to Mexico but everything is so booked, I don’t know if I can get a room. There’s “House” stuff like I need to get a roof replaced. And that’s just one of the many “house” things… There’s “Mom” stuff like I need to plan stuff for her to do to keep her busy and happy or maybe plan a trip for her to see my sister who just moved to California. There’s “Youngest son” stuff like “what do I need to do to get him motivated to be a mature young man on the right track?” and there is the burning question, What’s a creative way to give away my last 2-3 Go-Go pillows? Like I said, LOTS TO DO! Look, I know I am not the president of some multi million dollar corporation somewhere that has hundreds of employees relying on his every decision. I just want to figure out how to do all of the stuff that I need to do on a daily basis and still figure out how to open another bar in either Lubbock or Baton Rouge. J Everyone has tons of stuff to do. It’s all relative, right.
I remember a few years back, my grandmother would always ask me to come to her house so I could drive her to run her errands. I would be like, what errands do you have to run? You’re 70, retired and you couldn’t possibly have a lot going on. But yes, she did. She needed to go to the bank. (old people always have to go to the bank.) She would need to either go to the doctor or to the drug store to pick up her prescription. Then the post office. Maybe a quick trip to the grocery store. The list would go on and on. I would be like, how can a 70 year old, retired lady have so much to do? Grandmother, I understand. But even at 70 years old, and with no car, no internet, no social media, she still got it all done. I wish she was still around so I could ask her the secret! Ok, I gotta go… I got lots to do.
