Wait for it…

Posted on

We wanted to write a post about procrastinating.

Here’s list of the things that have delayed us:

  1. looking up the definition of procrastinate in an actual dictionary
  2. realising we have The Shorter Oxford English Dictionary vols 1 & 2 twice, plus an illustrated, a concise and some thesauri
  3. browsing the above mentioned reference books (this took ages but was interesting)
  4. tidying up the reference books shelves (took a while, made hands dirty)
  5. persuading someone else to write this post (unsuccessfully so far)
  6. the end of the working day (twice).

Reassuringly we read this in Fighting Invisible Tigers by Earl Hipp:

Pretty much everyone puts off boring or hard tasks from time to time. Some of the smartest, most motivated, and successful people are known (or secret) procrastinators.
