Am I Being Productive or Am I Just Procrastinating?
This weekend my mother is coming to visit and our grades are due next week. All week, I told myself I would finish grading my classes’ projects. But here it is, Thursday and I haven’t graded anything.
However, I did manage to reorganize my basement. I moved bookshelves from one room to another. I reorganized what books and magazines go in which room. I organized my DVDs by classic movies, Johnny Depp Movies, All other Movies and TV shows. Then I proceeded to alphabetize each group. I organized my photo magazines by year and month. I put my shoes inside individual clear boxes and labeled them. I rearranged the furniture in my office. I made and then hung curtains in the office. I finally put up the pictures and posters on the walls in my office. And I vacuumed the office.
So I got a lot accomplished around the house but I didn’t actually do what I was supposed to do. So was I really being productive or was I productively procrastinating?
