I just posted a reply to Pro's bookending and it prompted this insight. We aren't doing ourselves any favours. We are constantly reinforcing our behaviour by rewarding it.
We reward ourselves for procrastinating. Pro was using TV as an excuse not to do something, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS BEING RECORDED! Pro, not meaning to single you out but I'm sure everyone does it :)
So, Pro was getting rewarded for procrastinating. And so what happens? Pro's first instinct next time will be to procrastinate because there is a payoff.
We need to change this behaviour pattern. We need to re-train ourselves to only play after work, and not play to get out of work.
So, I am logging off now and doing some work. I will be back in an hour. Probably on my own because it's 11am here and you are all in bed ;)
