She loves those walks and usually sports a big, goofy, ear-to-ear doggie smile as she struts around looking at birds and sniffing things.
Me? Not so much.
Oh, I enjoy being outside and the birds do make me smile. Just not the other stuff that goes with taking Tuffy for her first-of-the-day stroll.
Sometimes I put the walks off until later, but you know what? Waiting doesn't make them any less onerous, or if you prefer, odorous.
Other than being later in the day, the whole endeavor is the same.
In fact, I could make a strong argument that it is actually worse, because I've extended the period of dread before the deed. That reluctance distracts me from my work and diverts my thoughts from the places they need to wander.
My work suffers.
What's the lesson?
Well, just as bad news doesn't get any better with age,* the jobs we like least don't magically become more palatable because we put them off.
There's a better way.
Tuffy is going to get a surprise tomorrow morning!
Listen, if you have an unpleasant job to do, don't delay. Just do it and move on.
