    Procrastination

    Ok who got this contagion and passed it on like plague.

    How come we go from being proactive to procrastination at some point. (headbang).

    I've been trying to get past it. I don't think it's something you can conquer all at once.

    Everyday I just try to get a little more done than I did yesterday. But there's so much around here that needs doing. I am making progress though.

    I'd rather be a PRO than an AMATEUR!

    From Urban Dictionary:

    Crastination


    Undefined use of time, Free time, Vague outcomes, Doodling, Occupying yourself with tasks unrelated to your purpose, Generally wasting time and other fun pursuits. Procrastination is the work that is done to avoid the work that is supposed to be done. AKA, Saturday mornings. See also Crastination and Procrastination.

    Historically, The word arises from the experience where a person becomes a Pro at Crastination by spending hours doing very little, or being off track more than one is on track. With the invention of rubber tires, we realized that tracks don't really matter any more so being off track was no longer a culturally shunned experience. Hence, Pro-Crastination was born.


    Saturday mornings, you and I engage in crastination by watching TV rather than vacuuming. We become better and better at crastinating and that is procrastination.

    Just find something to replace it.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
