I don’t have a job jar. I probably should have a job jar. Does that actually work?
I have read books on procrastination (after procrastinating starting them) and I have never found a sure fire method of beating procrastination. A rapidly approaching deadline means I get things done, but it doesn’t mean that the procrastination doesn’t happen.
Well, today’s Perfect Moment is a small victory over procrastination.. In my non existent job jar, I had a whole bunch of little jobs that I figured I should get around to. They weren’t particularly taxing, which made them easy to put off. I know that sounds ridiculous–it certainly reads as ridiculous. I am almost ashamed that I put it in this post–but I actually think it’s true.
I could have found other things to do today, but for some reason, I was able to gather some energy and do a bunch of these tasks. Maybe it was the lack of exciting TV. Maybe it was that no one bothered me, or looked over my shoulder, or criticized my plan of attack.
On another note, totally unrelated to this, I am experiencing difficulty in reading other people’s posts. When I click on my Reader tab, nothing comes up. The page shows an outline of where posts would be, but no posts appear and there is nothing to click on. It is kind of frustrating. I know some of you have written posts, but I can’t read them. Sorry.
I have written a note to WP, but if any of you have a solution, please let me know.
