Think I'll Make Myself A Cup of Tea: Procrastination

If you are like me, I imagine you know something about procrastination. Instead of jotting this blog, I have other things I ought to be doing, like sleeping, finishing that book I meant to finish a week ago, or writing that chapter to the new book I'm working on, or getting my camera and heading out for the morning, or....

Instead it's 5:13 a.m. and I am drinking tea, now cooled and thinking about making another cup of tea.

How about you? Want to put off that which you need to be doing?  Here's a 4+ minute video that cleverly (and artfully) looks at procrastination by John Kelly. I think you will absolutely love it. 

Before watching though, go ahead a make yourself a cup of tea...

  1. Love, this video! Cleaning is my go-to procrastination activity! From the amount of time I do procrstinate you'd think my house would be immaculate! Maybe I need to procrastinate more!

  8. As I am from Dublin, I take solace in the tea excuse. Seems like heritage speaking, Nancy.
