Procrastination Involves Hard Work and Strategy


Design by Anu Anniah

Goal —delay waking up

Set the alarm
Snooze the alarm when it rings
Calculate how long it takes to get ready
Figure that you can sleep for 5 minutes more

Reset alarm
Switch to Plan B — skip bath to save time
Recalculate time to get ready

Reset alarm
Panic about having overslept
Another round of calculation about the time required to get ready
Switch to Plan C — pack breakfast, eat in the cab
Another 10 minutes saved

Reset alarm
Wake up

Goal achieved — successfully delayed waking up by half an hour!

Wrote this for a contest run by Sharing Stories. A 100-word poem based on the theme ‘procrastination’. Won!!! Yay!
