I looked up this phrase, “a bias towards action,” and I was like the mouse given a cookie. I read an article about bias towards action, I clicked on some links that took me to some cool products to help with to dos and action. I read a bit in my new book.
Wait, this is not what I was going to do. I wanted to write about having a bias towards action not read all night about it.
A bias towards distraction is what I have!!!!
I discuss, I think, I read, I research, and then, I repeat.
Really?!!!!??!!! No wonder I spin my wheels.
Late at night–my focus is gone, but still my grading pile is large.
What makes a person have a bias towards action? The knowledge that he/she can take control of a situation and ACT–and not just the knowledge—the act of doing.
Too much pontificating, Maya!
Hmmm…how do I take control of my grading pile?
See, Maya, just go grade some papers!!!!
The pile is large. I am tired. I don’t want to.
Pick a number–any number…take control.
Go grade 8 papers–it’s late.
I will grade 8.
Good night. Go grade now.
But…the blog isn’t done.
I have a new book that I hope will help me figure out how to be smarter, better, and faster, but for now–one step. Control. Control to make the pile wane.
A bias towards grading action.
Now I will grade–maybe 5.
