Too Much Planning is Indistinguishable From Procrastination
First of all, sorry about the lack of blogging last week. I was a challenging combination of busy and sick. Close to death, in fact, just ask my girlfriend.
Anyway, let’s get back to business with this interesting lifehacker article I read last week. I’m a little concerned that a project I’m currently assigned to falls into this category – everything is meticulously planned, but nothing of substance ever happens.
Procrastinating feels lazy. You know you shouldn’t, but you do it anyway because work is hard. Planning, brainstorming, and discussing feels productive because you’re talking about doing stuff. If you don’t move to action, though, there’s no difference between the two.
