I'm not procrastinating... I'm prioritizing.
Earlier this week, I meant to look up which day I was supposed to blog on the Casablanca Authors blogspot, but priorities happened and when I got the email notification on Wednesday that my turn to blog was on Friday, my priorities got rearranged a bit.
I'll be back later. I need to prioritize this food in the microwave. (7 pm on Wednesday)
(7:20 pm on Wednesday) Well, it turns out that there were only enough leftovers for one person. I'm prioritizing this blog post again while I simultaneously eat my roast beef on bagel sandwich. No left-over chicken enchiladas for me.
Well, the sandwich is gone. I just remembered the garbage gets collected tomorrow and I need to clean out the refrigerator. Then I need to prioritize doing the dishes, because I'm almost out of clean spoons. Without clean spoons, I can't make my hot tea with sugar and milk. Without my hot tea... It's a priority! (7:24 pm on Wednesday)
While cleaning out the refrigerator, my mom called. So the refrigerator cleaning became a lesser priority and chatting with my mom prioritized itself to the top of the list. The refrigerator is now clean, but I'm prioritizing this blog post before those dishes. Okay, I guess I better go wash them. They're not going to wash themselves. I'll be back when this blog post becomes the priority again. It might have to wait until tomorrow. I need to prioritize some writing after the dish priority. After that cup of hot tea. Hey, I might as well wash one more spoon while I'm prioritizing those dishes. (8:13 pm on Wednesday)
Did you miss me? I've been prioritizing again. You probably didn't even know I was gone so long. This is the story of my life. Rearranging priorities. (4:15 pm on Thursday)
I don't procrastinate. I prioritize. Things that must get done, will get done and they will be done on time. Maybe not in the order I intend them to get done, but I somehow get everything done that has to get done. If it's not a priority, I put it off until it has to be done, but that's because I have other things that are higher priorities. So you can call it procrastination if you like. I'm calling it prioritizing. (It decreases my guilt...)
Crap, I just remembered I need to prioritize paying the electric bill.
How do you prioritize?
