Single-tasking Series: Part 4 – Procrastination, Multitasking’s Fat Ugly Cousin

Tags: , , , ,

“Procrastination is the thief of time.” Some famous guy whose name I’ll look up at some point

This is part 4 of the increasingly inappropriately named Singletasking trilogy Singletasking Series. I’d hoped to post it sooner but I’ve been putting it off for a while.

Procrastination is common, affecting everyone to some degree, at some point.

It is not, as many people often believe, related purely to time management.

Procrastination is the fat ugly cousin of multitasking.

The adept procrastinator is an eager multitasker and the enthusiastic multitasker multitasks as a means of procrastination.

So, you’re a procrastinator, welcome to the club.

But what can we do to use that fact to our advantage?

Sorry, just need to take care of something shap-shap…will finish this post soon..promise.
