Procrastination is….

…checking your email… writing emails… thesaurus-izing your emails. Procrastination is… playing video games… with your furniture.

Confession time:  I am the worst about procrastinating (especially if a task requires sitting still for extended periods) – even though I know that innovators are always doing things.

Here’s a fun but eerily accurate video by Mickey and Johnny. (The narrator’s accent gives it a sense of being serious and important, like only the British can.) I found this on my coauthor Jono Hey’s blog.

The ones that resonated most with me were “arranging your bookshelves by color”, “not being able to decide how to do something” and “not knowing how to finish something.” (Constraints do help with the knowing how to finish part, though!)
