PROCRASTINATION

PROCRASTINATION IS THE FINE ART OF AVOIDING THE INEVITABLE.THERE USED TO BE A JOKE GOING AROUND WHERE YOU GAVE A PERSON WHO FREQUENTLY SAID “I WILL DO IT WHEN I GET AROUND TO IT”A ROUND CARDBOARD CIRCLE WITH THE WORDS “ROUND TO IT”, PRINTED ON IT.

ANOTHER PHRASE FREQUENTLY USED BY THE PROCRASTINATOR IS, ” I WILL CROSS THAT BRIDGE WHEN I GET TO IT”. I READ SOMEWHERE THATTHE COVERED BRIDGE IS ALMOST EXTINCT. THIS BRIDGE IS IN THE PART OF VIRGINIA THAT MY ANCESTORS SETTLED IN DURING THE LATE 1700’S.I WONDER IF MY FOREBEARS WERE PRONE TO AVOID THINGS TOO.WAS THEIR TENDENCY TO PICK UP AND MOVE ON EVIDENCE THAT THEY WOULD LEAVE RATHER THAN DEAL WITH THE UNNECESSARY?ALL PROCRASTINATION IS NOT BAD. IT CAN BE A FORM OF PRIORITIZATION.;A SORT OF ITEMIZATION, WITH MORE IMPORTANT THINGS HIGHER UP ON THE LIST.

THE PERPETUAL QUESTION THE PROCRASTINATOR ALWAYS HAS TO WEIGH IS THIS:AS THE WORLD MODERNIZES, AND COVERED BRIDGES GO THE WAY OF THE HORSE AND BUGGY, WILL WE PROCRASTINATORS STILL BE ABLE TO CROSS THE BRIDGE OR WILL WE BE STRANDED ON THE WRONG SIDE?

HERE IS MY SCRAPBOOK LAYOUT I MADE TO GO WITH THIS JOURNALING.
