Creative Ways to Get Nothing Done
|See what happens when you use the ironing board too much? (Photo credit: Wikipedia)|
Do I procrastinate? You bet I do and I am proud of it. In fact my husband and I have made a science of not doing what we need to do while appearing to be doing it. Hence the pieces of napkins under the table leg. It appears to be fixed but the first time I vacuum (later) it will come out and the table will wobble just like it did before.
The author of the article was in the habit of making lists....probably the biggest waste of time in my world that was ever suggested. I am much better at naming what I have done than I am at listing what I am going to do. First of all the done list is very short and second of all the minute the pen and paper is placed in front of me to list what I am going to do what is left of my mind goes blank. The true procrastinator in me emerges and nothing I think of REALLY needs to be done today. It can all wait a while.
Hiding the mess in a drawer, taking the lawn mower to the repair shop then waiting a month or two to pick it up, putting the ironing in a closet or near the ironing board so it is handy...all of those things are ways to not do what needs doing while appearing to be actually do it.
So what do you do...are you as creative as you could be?
Have a wonderful day.
