#SOL17: Procrastination City

Today’s idea and format is borrowed from Liz Garden’s Post “Procrastination Queen” here.

Procrastination City

I should work on my PD presentations.

But let me read one more section of the Writing Strategies.

I should work on my PD presentations.

Oh, is it raining out?

I should work on my PD presentations.

I need to respond to my “Slicers”.

I should work on my PD presentations.

Just one more cup of coffee.

I should work on my PD presentations.

Mya is ready for a walk now.

I should work on my PD presentations.

What’s happening on Twitter now?

I should work on my PD presentations.

Just a quick snack now.

I should work on my PD presentations.

I’ll just check my email quick.

I need to work on my PD presentation for tomorrow.

But . . .

Do you have those times when work is calling and any excuse will pull you away?  

How do you focus?  

What’s your secret?  

How do you teach “Focus” to your students?

Thank you, Betsy, Beth, Deb, Kathleen, Lanny, Lisa, Melanie, and Stacey for this weekly forum and the #SOLSC that runs from March 1 to the 31st. Check out the writers, readers and teachers here.
