You Can Be Busy And Still Procrastinate

A body in motion tends to stay in motion.A body at rest tends to stay at rest.

Even when we're in motion we often are not doing the important things.

Especially at work – we flit from one 'urgent' matter to another.

When things are quiet we 'research' or take a break on the internet.

This is the worst form of procrastination…

Procrastination in motion.

When we are moving from task to task we are usually too busy to even consider whether we should be doing something else.

When we stop we're too tired to act.

The cycle continues.

Next time ask yourself,

Is what I'm doing going to make me proud of what I accomplished?Would my kids want to read this in my obit?

Just because you're busy doesn't mean you're not procrastinating.
