I’m trying a new form of procrastination, something i don’t do all that often, blog posting. Instead of randomly wasting time looking at websites mildly related to what i’m working on, checking my rss feeds for the tenth time, seeing if anyones done anything interesting on facebook, checking my email, making my fifth cup of tea, looked at solutions to being distracted and avoiding procrastination – once i ventured on to myspace i knew i was getting desperate.
I am really pushed for time, my PhD presentation has to be written by tonight i need all the time i can to plan what i’m going to say and talk through it, but instead of being focussed and breaking down what’s left to do, i’m writing a blog.
This is the reason i refuse to use twitter, i’d spend more of my day updating it with mundane facts about myself and my day that nobody cares about than doing any work. Web 2.0, what is it good for except giving people excuses not to work. Brilliant if you, like me are researching it, then any web 2.0 esq procrastination is actually work related -fantastic.
But i won’t be doing it for much longer if i don’t get back to presentation writing – arrghhhh!!!
