The art of procrastination
Friday, November 04, 2011
So I’m doing this little thing called NaNoWriMo (read about it here: www.nanowrimo.org) and the goal is to write a 50,000 word novella or 50,000 towards a novel in 30 days.
Basically it’s a practice in procrastination….I mean discipline. Yeah.
Here’s the thing, while I am an organized person and very fastidious (good word huh?) about scheduling my time I am also a procrastinator. The problem is that I am easily distracted and this is never as apparent as it is in November.
It just so happens that November is the busiest month of the year for me, leading up to the second busiest month—December.
There is NaNoWriMo, the Christmas gifts that I am making, the small group I lead, my blog that I write (that is currently in disrepair, I should really put some work into that…)…That’s not even counting the things that I am planning on doing including creating a home notebook to organize all my crap…I mean time and activities…and making products for the etsy store I am going to open next year.
What all this means is that my procrastination kicks into full gear. Like today at work, when I should be working…on work…I decided that it would be nice to redo my bulletin board…and make my work notebook (that I use to organize my work time and tasks) more decorative….
It also took me all day to write up this blog post….
Oooo! Something shiny!
