...it's worth putting off.
Why are some people paragons of steady, regular and productive activity whilst others seem more chaotically inclined?
We've all read women's magazines and self help books. We all know that failing to plan is planning to fail. We have the tricks of time management drummed in to us from school days. Why do some of us resist?
Take this post, for example. My paper list and the my secret, back of my mind, really should be doing list are both full. There are countless things I could be occupying this minute or two with. I could get the dinner on, dust the living room, make progress on some college work. You wouldn't miss me if I didn't type this little missive to toss out onto the interweb sea of nonsense.
But still, I sit at my laptop and type. Perhaps it is a cry for help. Perhaps it is just one of the many routes of distraction and displacement I employ throughout the day. Perhaps I know that if I start any of the many tasks on my list, it will take longer than this little note and this little note will make me feel as if I have done something, no matter how off-task that something is.
Right - off to tick some lists.
