-- Ogden Nash
Ain't that the truth of things? When I think about all the ways that I waste time in a single day, I feel bad enough; but what really burgles my productivity is procrastination, and the thought that surely I'll do it later, so it's OK to fill my time now with otherwise unnecessary/worthless/pointless tasks. It's the thoughts along the lines of, "Sure, I need to read that chapter of my textbook for homework today, but I don't have to do that 'til this evening, so I can spend the morning watching stupid reality TV shows on Netflix." Then when the evening comes, I'm like, "Oh crap! I didn't do anything today!"
Mastering procrastination - if I manage that, I'll be the king of time. That's what Mr. Nash is saying, right?
