Not this old dog

Thursday, October 29, 2015

I understand I am supposed to be able to learn new tricks. So why am I going to have to stay up to the wee hours again to prepare a presentation that I should have taken care of days ago? It's as if I have a small part of my brain calculating the minimum amount of time I need to barely complete a project, and then figures out what is the latest time I can start said project without actually falling apart due to sleep deprivation. Maybe instead of a reptilian core, my brain has a zombie core....

    I seem to do the same, more often than I care to admit.

    I was thinking just yesterday that actually procrastination might be the most effective use of time. Because there's a part of you calculating the minimum amount of time you need to barely complete a project, that might be your way of saving time! Concentrated effort is the most efficient, I think. I do the same thing. These days, I always wait until just a couple of hours before I'm going off to teach to decide what I'm going to do. I've discovered that this works very well for another reason: my memory is bad now, so preparing so close to performance time makes me more likely to remember everything I need to.

    I just hope you can avoid the sleep deprivation headaches you had recently. Take care, Bemused!

    I too find myself putting things off until the last possible minute. I am working on not procrastinating and developing a positive way to stay on task. Haven't figured out the best approach, but am trying different strategies. Hope you find something that works for you. emoticon

    My brain has a zombie core, too !
    I think that I just enjoy working in the wee hours of the morning !
    There are fewer interruptions, and it is just so peaceful...
