Procrastinating? Nah, I’m being organised!

Amusing quote on 43 folders today, talking about RII – Repetitive Information Injury.

Know the signs. As described above, RII is when you’re stuck in a consumption loop. Your brain is thinking it’s more important to continue to find something to soak in rather than moving on to your next project. It’s tricking you into continuing with thoughts like, “Hey, it just takes a second to press that Get Email button… or that Refresh Feeds button…. go for it man! You never know when you’ll hit the information gold-mine!? Problem is, those seconds turn into minutes… and you’re suddenly staring at the same pages, listening to the same JUST DO IT advice, and suddenly 30 minutes have passed and you haven’t actually done anything…

30 minutes? Only 30 minutes have passed and you haven’t actually done anything?? Clearly I’m dealing with procrastination amateurs here. Try doing that all day, then we’ll talk.
