Got Procrastination down to a fine art
Got up relatively early this morning, made a cup of coffee, then got into chat(internet chatrooms), psychologically i alotted myself a couple of hours for this activity, but this is how i've got procrastination down to a fine art - i don't give myself an extra hour once my time is up, an hour before my time is up i feel unable to come to a reckoning with myself and say to myself - a few more hours.
It's 5:40pm now and basically i've wasted my whole day chatting, or browsing, it's like this every day, my days don't change! But there's a difference this time, i've told you all about it, i'll switch modes now and do what i intended, to read this book on improving my memory(which will change my life according to the author)
That's another thing, are we procrastinators suckers for the big solution ...usually to be bought in book form, i'm not knocking self-help books, but when you look at the market out there for them it's sorta funny, there are hundreds of websites trying to sell you something.
One last thought before i confront the book i've been avoiding(man oh man, how many books i could have read in the last ten years if i hadn't have wasted them on chat)....i'm intrigued by the 12-step programme which (in part) asks you to accept a higher force...have any of the regulars or Procrastinators Anonymous turned to religion?....me, i read a couple of buddhist books and tried a bit of meditation but then my beliefs got complicated...but that's another story
thanks for reading (if you have)
