The Jr. High football team took pictures yesterday during school. Our head coach needed to continue teaching, so as an assistant coach, I assisted by watching the players to make sure there was no monkey business taking place.
What should have taken 30 minutes ended up taking over an hour! I swear 90 year old women move faster than those boys did yesterday. Then I remembered back to when I was in school, and how I would milk every opportunity to be out of class for all its worth. These boys were doing what I would have done in their position.
It’s amazing how hard we work to get out of work.
I have areas in my life where I’ve procrastinated in an effort to get out of “work.” It’s not that I wouldn’t do these things, it’s just I didn’t want to do them now. So, things have been sliding... and eventually snowballing... until it becomes a mess. How much better off would I have been to do the work when it was first due?
