Missing Deadlines : George R. R. Martin – “Clash of Kings”

There’s something liberating about missing a self-imposed deadline. Avoid DEADLINES; look for LIFELINES. Deadlines are sad limits, and shouldn’t we all strive to be unbound, free of limitations? Time is our jailer as it is; why add extra shackles of our own volition?  Deadlines are for people who distrust themselves, who distrust the extent of their will to accomplish something… eventually. Self-flagellants love deadlines; avoid them. To reprieve ourselves from our own cruel sentences is to expand our own capacity for forgiveness.


Which is to say there’s pretty much no way I’m going to make my deadline of reading the entirety of “A Song of Ice and Fire” (thus far) before my birthday in February. :-/ BUT I hear I’m not the only one missing ASOIAF deadlines, so you know what?! NO GUILT! I AM FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

I’m almost finished with “A Clash of Kings” though. Maybe this can be done by March.
