Sometimes we do it for good reason, especially when the client assigns work while they are still indecisive about what they want. There are plenty of articles on line showing that a moderate amount of procrastination is good.
But I don’t need to sell anyone on “if” they should occasionally procrastinate. The question is: “when” you procrastinate, what to you typically do? I’m not asking about quality time deliberately set aside to enjoy yourself. I’m talking about things you didn’t plan to do and find yourself enjoying longer than you planned to enjoy it.
For me it’s getting sucked into blogging and the occasional video games. Sometimes, I delude myself in to believing that the blogging is necessary, especially when it’s political discourse. (Uh huh, sure it is. More like ranting.) I can’t say that video games are anything more than playing. But I only do it maybe 5-10 hours a month.
Why and how do you procrastinate. Do you play? Or are you on of those busy bees who procrastinate by doing other less important chores and running errands?
