ahh-procrastination

Of late, writing for me has been 1% production and 99% procrastination.

In fairness, I believe that a large % of most endeavours is spent on activities that have little, or at best, only a tangential bearing on the aim of the endeavour.

Take E-mail for example. Those of us who have worked as office employees at some point in the last twenty years have spent inordinate amounts of time on e-mail.

I have spent a lot of time thinking about this. (Procrastinating perhaps?)

With hindsight, I believe that all e-mail is procrastination. Not some of it, not even most of it, all of it.

You may not believe me, and I am sure that you are right. I am often wrong about these things.

As you are believer in e-mail – please sign up to this site – and I’ll send you the odd e-mail to keep you in the loop.

Forgive me, I have digressed. I am a champion procrastinator. I have multiple methods.

Self-Improvement is one. (Books, Apps, Courses.) Applications. Ways of automating processes that I don’t even do, is another. To-do lists. Facebook. Buying stationery, changing wallets, oh I could go on for ever.

As I write this post, I am in a new daily routine. Essentially, I remain digital-free until after lunch. So far, it has been a huge success. But then it is only day 2.

How do you procrastinate?

  1. Out blog hopping during the #Challenge from North Carolina. Looking for fellow writers and how they present their posts and theme. LOVE that yours is easy to read and navigate. There is another way to look at procrastination….you could call it your incubator time where ideas, pieces of dialogue, a setting is being worked out in your head while doing other things. What do you think? If you have time or interest in hotels and inns, that has been my theme this year. Normally, a lot about book/author/reviews and other things I feel passionate about. Come and join me if you can. Keep writing even when you are not, if you know what I mean.
