This year is turning out as expected.
Question we’re asked is: is this year turning out as expected?
Yes, but that ain’t no great thang – at least not necessarily.
Any answer to this question is likely to be depressing if you’re the type who lacks motivation but not ambition. I say likely because very rarely do people take their own expectations seriously.
Then I suppose we’re meant to realise that we should bring those two things in line. That is, we should be sufficiently motivated to fulfil our ambitions. That’s the reasonable response to the painful fact that we’re weak-willed.
I can recognise all of this – and still fail to be moved to action.
Here’s a first attempt at a blog post, and it’s poor.
