This Is What Procrastination Looks Like

This Is What Procrastination Looks Like

 

Start work

Fiddle with markers

 

Start work

Go to the bathroom

Make coffee

Walk the dog

 

Start work

Decide that something –

a shoe, a dish, a towel –

needs to be cleaned up

 

Start work

Realize you have to read Rumi

immediately

 

Find Rumi

Remember you forgot to pour the coffee

 

Start work

 

Start work
