Sandi Shilhanek | Are you Impulsive?

May 24, 2009

For the last two weeks or so I’ve been listening to the radio station I listen to at work advertise Fiddler on the Roof starring Topol. I’ve been sitting at my desk wishing I had a ticket for what has to be a fantastic show. Today I decided that there was really no harm in getting online and checking out prices. Called Mike, my husband and said would you like to go? I’d really like to go. He of course can’t go because of work commitments, but he said I could go.

Okay, how fast can I get online and buy a ticket? Should I be really cheap and buy any ticket, or do I deserve a great seat and maybe even valet parking? Debating this makes me think of trips to the bookstore. How often do I go thinking I need a book such as The Warrior by Sharon Sala (who also happened to have been the phone in guest for this week’s DFWTEA READERS dinner), but end up bringing home a huge stack!

This week’s question is are you impulsive like I was on Wednesday, or do you plan precisely and stick to the plan. If you are impulsive what was your last impulse buy regardless of whether or not it was a book? If you’re a planner how long do you have to plan before you attack?

Until next week happy page turning!

    I’m also both. I plan and then there are times when I”m impulsive. This week held an unexpected car repair, so I treated myself impulsively to 3 books since I had to sit and wait for the repair.
