As you may or may not know, procrastination is a favorite topic of mine. Not for any personal reasons or personal experience, of course, but because it’s something that’s generally interesting that has absolutely nothing to do with me at all.
In case you’re wondering.
But if you, like some other people who aren’t me, are prone to procrastination, I’ve decided a nicer way to describe it is dallying. Not only is it a much more pleasant word with its curves and satisfying resolve, it feels a little more accurate.
If I knew what procrastination was like, that is. Which obviously I don’t.
And here’s the other thing about dallying: it gives you space for thought, for ideas. Air for the seedlings of speculation and the light to let them grow.
Faster isn’t always better, and that is something I do have to remind myself.
Give yourself a moment to dally. Or several moments. You never know what you’ll sprout.
(And in a delicious twist of irony, this, my dallying post, is the one posted the earliest so far. Oh life.)
