Unfinished Business

I just wanted to write a quick post (as it's late and my Mrs wants me to come to bed) about lingering jobs. We all have them. Washing up that's starting to grow its own ecosystem, that lightswitch that's still hanging off the wall (but it works!)...

For me it's a plethora of oddjobs for old clients. In my case they come back for more, usually at the most inconvenient times. This time however it's all my fault. In desperation I have offered to do work in the hopes that I will finally get these people off my back.

It's not that they're begging me to do things, but more for my own sanity. I guess I have some mild form of OCD. I just want things tidy. Is that so bad?

I find that eventually there are so many things on my mind that I can do none of them. So I suffer silently in a corner somewhere waiting for the light to come on. Ultimately it's a crippling fear of failure that grips me most. Of course it is that very fear that breeds itself.

I'm sure you understand...

So follow my changing mental state on Twitter. You'll catch some of my mini rants and you may even witness my entire nervous breakdown (reality TV eat your heart out!)
