Quote of the Week

Today’s quote of the week is from Robert Benchley from his essay “How to Get things Done,a humorous look at his tendency to procrastinate. I read this essay in my literature curriculum, and I thought his principle was so true of me. If I’m working on my rough draft, I’ll be totally motivated to edit, but if I’m working on editing I’ll be motivated to finish that drawing from six months ago or straighten my room or something else.

“The psychological principle is this: anyone can do any amount of work, provided it isn’t the work he is supposed to be doing at the moment.” – Robert Benchley

Here is a link to the essay if you’d like to read it yourself: http://www.stonesoup.org/meetings/0601/pim.pres/procrastination.pdf
