The Procrastination Cycle
I found this poster on Zazzle, and although it's no artistic masterpiece, it definitely makes a good point. The most important step along the cycle is on the top left: "Accomplish 85% of stuff; good enough."
That's why I never seem to get stuff done - there's always that last 15% lying around. I clean 85% of the kitchen, I clear off 85% of my desk, then tell myself "that's enough" and quickly become distracted. But then nothing is ever done; there's always more.
With this in mind, today I washed all of the dishes, not leaving a couple of measuring cups and spoons at the bottom of the sink like I usually do. *pats self on back*
I may have to make a cuter, more artistic version of the above poster. What do you think? Do you relate with the Procrastination Cycle?
