The Pixies – Where is my Mind (1988)

Where is my mind?

Way out in the water, see it swimmin’

One of the issues I’m having writing this blog is looking at it from the outside and seeing a whiny bitch.

I’ve gotta make some changes and that’s what I’m working on. Hopefully I can share some strategies that work. Whether I succeed or fail, there’s going to be stages I go through. Maybe being a whiny bitch is a stage to be gone through, then again maybe it’s a step going in the completely wrong direction or maybe it’s not even reality, just the way I’m viewing it.

Probably all those things and more in various degrees. And then it could just be that I am a whiny bitch. I have no idea – It’s not helping though.

Whining about whining, it’s a loop.

I keep forgetting the basics:  Focus on the big picture. If I focus on my insecurities and what other people think (or what I think they think) I’m just making it harder to stay or even get in the game. Spending one’s life in relentless, obsessive negative thoughts doesn’t have many benefits.

Bless his heart

NTR Description on Google - "With millions of people making music for thousands of years, non-repetitive, unsafe, non-categorized, top-notch music should be the norm."

Much better

By the way, another schedule went tits up.

Things brightened up the last couple days, got some things done, listed.

I’ve been going through CDs, European labels, most of it I hadn’t heard of. I went on eBay and the results were often just European sellers. Some pretty rare ones. I’ll be putting them up. 

It’s easy when things go smoothly.

Gotta Get Up – Harry Nilsson (1971)

Gotta get up, gotta get out
Gotta get home before the morning comes
What if I’m late, got a big day
Gotta get home before the sun comes up
— Harry Nilsson

20 days since I listed any items. Went to bed feeling like I’d be all ready to go in the morning. In the morning as I drank my coffee I just didn’t have it. So instead of listing I searched for ways to get motivated.

It wasn’t a loss: 
“You’re looking for motivation for something that requires discipline.”

Do it right – Moe Tucker and Daniel Johnston (1989)

Get it all in order
It’s the horse
And then the cart
You want to get it right

To do it right
Don’t play dumb
And don’t act smart

— Daniel Johnston

It’s been 19 days since I listed anything.
If I wasn’t the boss, I’d fire me.

Been busy, doing things while avoiding listing. I could have listed, would have been better.

Sales are ok considering my small inventory, they would be good if I put more new things out.

In a way it goes back to the schedule, I only got the mornings block set up but that worked. Worked for almost a week and then a couple of days the next week.

A couple of setbacks though and things were falling apart. Sort of missed the main idea of setting up a schedule, a routine  – setting aside time to make sure important things get done when things are falling apart. Except things weren’t really falling apart.

And I could have restarted the schedule at any time.

I’m not totally kicking myself in the ass, but I should be.
