If you are good with flowers and plants, and you have a natural talent for turning seeds into a colourful vibrant , then you can be said to have green fingers. I definitely do not.
It's not that I don't like flowers and plants. Many times, while walking in the , strolling around town or visiting other people's gardens, I stop to admire a tree or blowing in the wind. As the saying goes, we should all stop from time to time to the roses.
I just don't have the for looking after plants. It's the constant watering and care that puts me off. There just doesn't seem to be a large enough return on for my time, and that might sound strange coming from someone who used to be a .
I grew tomatoes, corn, melons, , peppers and even . But that was a job and, although I did enjoy doing it most of the time, I still resented the long hours that I needed to work in order to plant, water and harvest the crop. I'm not a naturalist. I'm a city boy who's happy to appreciate pretty palm trees blowing in the wind but usually from the and of his flat's balcony.

Do you ever feel as if your life is you and not the other way around? Do you ever want to shout ‘Stop!’ and take of the way you manage each day, week, month or even year?
If the answer is yes, then we have something in . I often get the impression that I live other people’s agendas; family, friends, work colleagues and even strangers.
I’ve tried a of different organizational tools, but nothing seems to improve the situation. I use a paper diary for day-to-day and a weekly /monthly planner to set my . I use online software to keep track of the hours I work on certain projects and digital project files and ‘to do’ lists, but I constantly fail to meet my and personal deadlines.
Life has a habit of getting in the way. It could be a favour a friend asks of me (who can a friend in need, right?) or a family member has an ‘urgent’ problem. Social events out of nowhere and new work tasks come up that need to be dealt with. It seems that other people’s priorities also have to be mine and saying ‘no’ without offending is a I haven’t yet mastered.
