Last minuteism

Why does this always happen? Why do I always do it to myself? Drag and drag with a project until the last minute then have to rush to finish on time? In this case, two agreements that must be ready by tomorrow morning, both of which I'm 3/4 done with, which means that now, at 9p.m. I'm sitting in front of my laptop instead of at a concert at Alliance Francaise. Aaargh!

Last minute-ism is a common Ghanaian trait, unfortunately mine is combined with the (Swedish?) trait of punctuality, which means I relax aaah, then stress and stress to still ensure I hand over work on time. Not a good combination, in fact it is a wonder that I still have low blood pressure.

At least I have refreshed myself for the past half hour by playing Mapouka Magic System, Habib Koite, Salif Keita


Samini very loudly and dancing like a mad woman. All set for a long night of work!

Now I just hope I am able to post this since Iburst has been giving me trouble for the past two days. Anyone else experiencing the same thing? Don't worry, I'll deal with them another day. Grrr...

I'm learning lately, on my to-do list, to do a few easy things first for the feel-good factor, and then to tackle the more difficult things. And when I get to them, to devote 2 hours at one sitting because it tends to deal with a large chunk of the work. It makes for a high rate of completion, instead of 4 or 5 jobs being 2/3 or 3/4 complete.

Thanks Nana Yaw, I hope your technique can help me.

You cannot go wrong in terms of getting those creative juices flowing with Habib Koite and the genius...Mansa of Mali...Salif Keita.

completely off topic, have you heard his latest album 'Mbemba'? It will make your toe nails curl :)

Oooh, I haven't heard it yet, will have to look it up. Mostly listen to Moffou.

If only this calibre of music was produced in Ghana!
