Under Construction


I understand it, but the one thing I do not like is for a webpage to be under construction. You click on a link for what you hope to be relevant content, only to see “under construction.” Under construction. Being built. We do not know the cause of the prolonged, to us, construction. We do not know about budgets, lack of man power to complete the job. The Web Designer resigning. Poor web design. As for me, well, this one is under construction – still! But, it is further along than it has ever been! And a great big WHEW!! for that. You see, I have this thing about lack of prolonged focus; my mind wandering; losing the sense of purpose for the task. I will admit it. It’s plagued me all of my life. …See, I wandered off for about 30 minutes! Had to grab another handful of fries, talk to my daughter about a conversation I had earlier today with one of her classmate’s parents. STUFF! What STUFF still has you under construction? Generally, the stuff that hinders our completion needs to be broken up into small, bite sized chunks. How do you build a wall? One brick at a time. I have never seen anyone graduated from college the day they arrive. Ever seen a baby born the minute it was conceived? Goals physically achieved while putting them on paper? Small, bite sized pieces – that is the key. And soon you will find your “construction” project completed in the allotted time, and under “budget.”
