Procrastination

I'm blogging when I should be working.

Why?

Because I'm a fool, that's why.

I never thought I'd say this, but I miss it when teachers used to pressure you in school. You'd be constantly harried to ensure you got your work done. By comparison, the freedomhere is intoxicating. Lectures are optional! Work at my own pace! Manage my own time!

Blech. Well, I'm fed sick of leaving my work to the last minute all the time. Action is required.

Startig next week, I'm introducing a two-hour slot of work/study into every weekday, irrespective of what my actual deadlines are. I'll do whatever bit of work seems most pressing at the time, or alternatively just some reading/revision. I post this here in the hope that apublic announcement will make me feel guilty if I don't do it.

In fact, each day I'll blog briefly about what I di with my two hours. Hopefully that'll set me straight.

  1. Yeh, I've had a similar intention for the last few years. It's never quite seemed to have solidified into anything more than an intention yet though…

  2. You'll come to love the last minute panics, staying up all night with coke, coffee and crisps, and wondering why… well, just why.

  3. I think I need to implement the same course of action in my (non)routine, because it seems deadline pressure is my only motivation.

    I think I'll start next month though, next week is just a bit too soon.

  4. How interesting that I should stumble on your wise words when I too am whiling away valuable time on the internet rather than studying. Your plan has been on my to do list for years, maybe this year i'll actually make it work! Hope it works out for you…
