The work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life.

Back on track

You’re solidly on track, moving firmly toward your goals. Then, for one reason or another, you get distracted.

It happens. Along the path, occasionally you’ll wander off in the wrong direction. It’s OK. In fact, it can help you. You’ll probably learn or experience something valuable. After all, something caused you to be distracted. And once you’re off the main road, you might as well make the most of it.

Then, remind yourself of where you were going in the first place, and of how much you want to get there. The disappointment of getting distracted, gives you the opportunity to reflect on your original direction.

Every now and then, you’ll wander from the path. Use these distractions as opportunities to learn and grow, then point yourself back in the direction of your goals, with renewed commitment and enthusiasm.

— Ralph Marston
