Programming and Laziness 
14 March 2010, 1:23am

I don't really understand why this happens, but I find myself going through phases where I just get very lazy in some regards. For example, I made loads of progress on petercompernolle.com, a site I've been working on to display my past work and photos, back in November 2009; but for the last several months, I haven't even really touched it.

It all tends to start with a short period when my schedule is out of wack. For me, it all came to a near-end over Christmas, when I was super busy with Christmas stuff, and then I went to Houston for work. I came back was was busy moving all over the place, and I rarely took my laptop. And when I came home, I was too excited to be home, with my girl, to program.

And now, with a bit of a cold making my head pound, I have a whole Sunday to program. I launched everything that I would consider my "programming environment", looked at it for a while, and contemplated playing my Wii instead.

It's too bad, because I'd love to have that site finished. But then I look even further and realize that I still haven't completely finished avalantern either!

Too much to do in life. I guess I'll have to wait until the tide comes back in. But for now, I'll clean my apartment, listen to some good tunes, read some RSS feeds, play the Wii, and who knows what.

I gotta tell you, I know exactly how this is.

I wouldn't necessarily call it "laziness" but more think of it like "momentum".

When I start a project or get into a project I have a lot of momentum. Nothing can stop me. That is of course until something does stop me; be that travelling or work or significant others or new programming projects. And when I lose that momentum it is really hard to get it back.

Seriously though, there is too much to do in life.
