Procrastination

Logan, one of our six great grandsons, has slightly red hair; and, whenever you see him, he is smiling and with such a joyful twinkle in his eyes you can’t help but wonder what magical things are dancing around inside his mind.

He had been eagerly awaiting his upcoming birthday because, as he put it, he was going to be a “big boy.” Mom: “Logan, you are almost six years old; don’t you think you can cut up your own pancakes now?” Logan: “No, I will tomorrow.”

How many times do we, too, put off until tomorrow those things that could and should be done today.


Let me share a few quotes about procrastination with you:

This is the perplexing thing about procrastination: although it seems to involve avoiding unpleasant tasks, indulging in it generally doesn't make people happy. ….James Surowiecki

One of the great challenges of our age, in which the tools of our productivity are also the tools of our leisure, is to figure out how to make more useful those moments of procrastination when we're idling in front of our computer screens. ….Joshua Foer

We probably have procrastinated at times - everyone, except, maybe, my spouse.
