Procrastination is a powerful thing. Why is it I would rather watch old YouTube videos than do something I have to do? Why is it that I would rather think about what order I was going to eat the “leftover” Halloween candy rather than complete the task at hand? Procrastination is powerful. Powerful with a capital P.
The ironic thing (if you want to call it that rather than “sad thing”) is that I just finished reading a book that was all about beating procrastination. I read the book in nothing flat and found myself agreeing with a lot of it. The problem is that when push came to shove, I still fritted away lots of time.
Thankfully that task is now done. What a sense of relief.
Unfortunately, that just means another task has moved up in the queue. That task is an observed lesson tomorrow. I should be working on that….but instead I decided to blog about procrastination……..so in effect, I am procrastinating again.
