I am disorganized. Yeah, I admit it.
All the signs are here: cluttered office, missed deadlines, messy living space, rumpled appearance, e-mail in-box with
hundreds thousands to read. It’s procrastination with a capital P. Everyone procrastinates, I suppose, but daily I see hear whining and see the results daily at school.
Students start studying for something the night before or the day that it is due. So they ask for extensions. I don’t get the grading done quickly, so I beg for student forgiveness.
To-do lists help me for a while. Lately, I’ve been using sticky notes and putting a list on my laptop desktop. I’d like to finish this list by tomorrow afternoon. Think I have a chance?
Where on this list do you see my research work that is directed toward future publications? At least I have blogging down at the bottom.
