my hierarchy of procrastination
on monday the sun was shining, so i wandered the opposite direction to the mountain to sit under a tree.
on tuesday i knitted, because i didn't feel like making hairpins.
on wednesday morning, i made hairpins to put off going to my studio to inventory garters and hem pants.
on wednesday afternoon, i made garters to avoid hemming pants. then i hemmed pants to avoid making dance costumes.
on thursday morning, i typed on the computer to avoid making flowers. then, i made flowers to avoid going to my studio and drafting patterns.
on thursday afternoon, i made garters to avoid drafting patterns.
today i MUST draft patterns; that was supposed to be done right now.
i write lists and lists in an attempt get everything done. in the past, i would procrastinate by having another cup of tea, running off to happy hour or just staring out the window. now i am procrastinating by doing things that are lower on my list.
