I’m wondering if I should change my name from Man Of DistrAction to King Of ProcrastiNation.
Both are seriously on point. Both are clever.
Both names would be perfect for a blog.
But, the more I think about it, the more I have a problem with change.
It’s a big deal!
It is? Not really. It’s actually just me playing around in my head. It’s a thing I do. Usually when I should be doing something else.
Hey, that actually sounds like procrastination, doesn’t it? I should be writing a blog post but I’m thinking about changing my blog’s name instead.
Well, in fairness, I’m doing both.
So let’s contemplate this
Right? ‘Cause that’s how I procrastinate best. And if the name change happens then I’m going to have to own it, I’m going to have to act like I’m the king of this thing.
Firstly, that name would mean I’d be calling myself “king” and who doesn’t want to be king? Okay, it’s a bit patriarchal, but it doesn’t really work with president or prime minister, does it? So king it is.
And secondly, the word can be broken up into two parts so I get that clever double entendre by just capitalizing an internal letter, the N at the beginning of Nation.
So Nation relates back to King and Procrastination can be both the type of nation of which I am king, and the actual issue that we deal with so often.
I’m not really the king. I’m not even really a king, not one of a group of kings. I’m a person with ADHD, one of many, who happens to also be a writer. I’m just a man.
And while I do think we would be great neighbors if all of us people with ADHD were to start our own nation, I would hesitate to call it ProcrastiNation on the brochures.
Additionally, while we might mean well, and don’t take this the wrong way, how long would it take us to create this nation? I mean, I’m already putting off starting on it and it was my idea.
And if we did?
If we did manage to create a nation called ProcrastiNation, who would manage it? I suspect we’d just keep putting off taking care of the garbage pick up and the utilities and health care and the like. It would be a mess.
And I don’t really want to be king of a mess, not that I’d get to be king. I mean, don’t you have to be born into that job?
No, the more I think about it, the more I want to remain me, a man, just a simple, unassuming man of DistrAction.
Yep, that’s the action I think I’ll take. InAction. I’ll be part of the In crowd with my InAction.
