Okay, so I've been meaning to write an e-book on the hidden value of procrastination ... but I just haven't got around to doing it yet! (ba
-bum!) I do
have an example of the notion, though, that I thought worthy of sharing with you.
My wife got me a new travel suitcase, isn't that nice?! Problem, though - it had a tear on the inside. Well so many days later (procrastination point one) I took it back to the store for a replacement. Since the model was now out-of-stock, I started looking at the other
models available. I don't mind saying that I was amazed by - and a bit overwhelmed with - the number of choices they offered.
I looked at each and every one of them (procrastination point two) - thanks again, Marion (the sales lady) for being so patient with me. Ultimately, I decided not
to buy any
of them because the one I liked best was a bit too expensive (procrastination point three). So I went home suitcase-less.
The mailman arrived just as I was pulling into the driveway. And wouldn't you know it, in the day's mail was a 20% off coupon from the very store in question. So back I went to the store (procrastination no more) and got the exact suitcase I wanted at the exact price I was willing to pay!
So who says that procrastination doesn't pay?!
Have a story about how procrastination has paid dividends for you? Feel free to share.
