Procrastination Flowchart

By |12 Feb 2011|Humor|3 Comments

This Procrastination Flowchart might explain why your research stalled or you haven’t updated your blog. Or are you, like me, avoiding something else by burying yourself in your genealogy research?

If you share this procrastination flowchart….

…it won’t cure you, but you’ll have fun.

And now I must have some scanning I need to do? Filing? Replying to someone? Updating clients? Syncing my online tree? Or……… I know! I can watch some videos on YouTube about doing research at the National Archives.

    Just reading the flowchart and trying to figure out where I am on it right now has fulfilled my procrastination quota for the morning!

    I LOVE this! Glad I took the time to enlarge it — it gave me a chance to procrastinate.

    Oh, gosh, someone has found out how I work … how embarrassing … This is too true!
