Oh, my God I am just like that! I am the Queen of Planning. Forget the putting the plan into action part..I suck at that. I love planning though..I am sooooo glad I'm not the only one who does that!

I do that too. I have started so many things and then I'll move onto something else. Then my husband will say, "Ummm, why don't you finish [thing 1] before you start something else?" Hah. I just tell him I'll do it when I feel like it (and I usually don't!). Maybe I'm just a smartie. I'll use that excuse next time. :)

And I thought I was just lazy, and horribly dyslexic... No, seriously Einsteins teachers thought he was slow! I love to research and learn but to put it into "practice" cuts into "input" time. A really good hobby that is mostly research and very,very little "work" is genealogy. That is how I found your site. I am researching my Steenberg roots. I have learned many ways to research and spell that name. Keeps me off the streets, and at family gatherings everyone makes sure to touch base.

Great gods, that could have been one of my entries. Except that it was well written. ;)

I don't know coaches are a tough breed. You just might meet your match. :-) I know how you feel though...I do the same thing.

I have the SAME tendencies...and here's my thing: 1) looking at something as an obligation turns me off every time...I hear you say "I need to...." about most of the things on your list there. Maybe when you "want" to, you will. The difference? Obligation or's all a matter of perspective for me. and 2) you're a right brainer...I mean, you're a whole brainer for sure...I can relate, but you have the right brainer stuff going on. So did Einstein. So do I. So do more and more people these it's totally not an ego stroke but a noticing of evolution *in process* instead of only 1,000 years after the fact. So...where I have come with all of this: If it's part of who I innately "am" then I will work more laboriously and less successfully if I try to change that to how I think it *should* be or whatever. I have much more success when I adapt what I'm doing to how I am. So...go do something else for a while. Why do you have to finish what you start??? Some people are starters....some are finishers...some are detail people...all roles are important. And, I bet, when you *want* to finish something and don't see it as an obligation or a "I really need to do this" are more likely to...yes? no? Go climb a tree? And...if you're in the market for a personal coach....well, I'll kick your ass all day long for free! :0) And...Monica, darling..and all of you who are identifying with her...check out a yahoo group I started for people like's called aDifferentDrum

one more if I haven't said enough!!! Einstein was "slow" are other genuises that we know (people at the Grove with these similar labels who are GENUIS!)...labeled dyslexic, aspergers' etc. Great books about this stuff too...I'm studying it, it's my new pet project because I have right brained kids to deal with and want to encourage and nurture their greatness, not their cultural submission to normalcy. :0)
