today I created a GitHub service user to procrastinate doing 6 month reviews (that aren’t due until the end of the month but also I should do that now)

So the trick to do anything is finding something I want to do less and trying to do that.

Not sure how to work this to my advantage to be honest.

@patrick Structured Procrastination.

Have an entire essay someone wrote on how to exploit this particular brain quirk :-)

(I too tend to do this in a semi-structured way: give myself permission not to do the most urgent / important thing for a while providing I’m doing something else off my todo list instead…)
