I’m tired of sarging. I’ve been at it about four months now and pretty much non-stop. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s taking over my life but it’s been my primary focus for so long that other things are being neglected. You know you are sarging too much when:
– The dining room is still covered in a thick dust from when the builders were in six weeks ago
– You haven’t opened the oven in four months
– There’s a two-month pile of unopened letters on the table
– You have 25 shirts hanging on the “to be ironed” rail
– You’ve been meaning to buy new work shoes since spring and still haven’t got as far as trying a pair on
– GTAIV has been sitting in it’s box under the TV and still not completed
– You’ve got a few dozen pages through six different books and finished none of them
– Despite all the well intentioned plans to work out and go jogging, you’re not doing it
– You have a boxing match in less than three weeks time and have barely trained.
Fact is I’m getting burned out. Over 300 sets in four months and I’ve gotten stale. I’m at the point where I can barely be bothered to run a routine on a set I’ve hooked. Worse, I’m lazy in set and not using any of the skills I’ve been learning. I’m making backward steps.
I know how humans learn. Do the work, practice, practice, practice and then take a bit of time to chill out and let it sink in. So that’s what I’ll do.
Krauser is taking a week off from sarging. He may even extend it to a fortnight
