Patience or Procrastination?

Posted on April 13, 2005 by Sarah Eaton.

Gosh, I like this post by Steve Pavlina.  Here's an excerpt:

If this sounds like a recipe for procrastination [patience], it is. Procrastination only becomes a problem when you put off working on what’s truly important to you and get sucked into wasting time. But it’s a valid tool when used to incubate a problem to make it easier and more efficient to solve.

One of the things that I do as a recovering procrastinator (in order to avoid slipping back into being a practicing procrastinator) is to do things immediately.  Pronto. Stat.  With extreme efficiency.  I make schedules, and I stick to them.

But, as Steve points out, sometimes just letting time pass solves certain problems.  The challenge is to identify when you're being patient, and when you're avoiding, I suppose.

And I guess I could always use a little more patience.  Yeah, yeah.  Just a little patience.
