swing waltz suggested we should start a procrastination topic but no one seems to know how to get it started.... so... why exactly can't we do so

And what other things aren't you doing yet...

Procrastination is - your brain says that “instead of this, I’d rather do that.” Even if there’s much left to do, by pitting it against the worst task, everything else becomes somehow more appealing. Procrastination doesn’t have to be a bad thing; instead, it can actually be your ticket to even greater productivity.

But better still maybe our heart is telling our heads to chill out. Our brain needs us to be involved engaged our heart needs to sit back and enjoy, go with the flow.
Procrastination could save your life. I've had internal arguments about whether to go dancing on a nice sunny evenings when I could just sit happily in the garden. Maybe the thing I'm procrastinaing over is getting some nice garden furniture so i can sit there with my book, cup of tea or friend. ( Not yet a Zen master some things do make a difference)

work or rather the lack of it. Quite honestly what I have to do will last me till lunchtime, my boss just doesnt have any more work for me at the moment; he's chasing debts, being hassled by people trying to get a cheaper fees and now he's out for most of the day.

My father taught me that if a thing's worth doing it's worth doing well.
not having ever done anything particularly well what is the point?
