It’s amazing what you can get done when you are procrastinating. Instead of getting done what I should have, I cleaned my house, did dishes, and put together a photo book of our trip to Ireland. From 2008-2009. Which I have been procrastinating since last winter. I guess I just needed to find something even bigger to procrastinate before I could get around to it. (Plus, I did end up with a great coupon for a free photo book from Picaboo!)
Isn’t procrastination amazing? When we are procrastinating we will accomplish all those things that we were previously procrastinating. Like cleaning! You all know how much I hate cleaning. Well when I don’t want to do something on my to-do list, I will do the dishes, put away loads from the dishwasher, do laundry, clean the floors, and more. Yet I never clean by choice. On days when I am supposed to clean, I would rather grade essays, input grades, or pretty much anything.
Procrastination is a pretty interesting human trait, isn’t it?
