Best Songs of 2009

Bonnie Johnson's Post I love looking back at the previous year and all the “best of”‘ lists that so many people compile.

I also love music so I thought I’d check what the most popular songs were for 2009.

You can agree or disagree with the list below but these are Amazon’s best selling songs of 2009.  I’m a little disturbed that there are so many on this list that don’t sound familiar.  Could I be getting old and out of touch?  Nah! Guffaw!

Never do today what you can put off for tomorrow. Better yet, never put off ’til tomorrow what you can avoid altogether!

While I was surfing the web looking at the reasons we all procrastinate from time to time I found this very funny video that nailed it for me~

Apparently I am not the only one who does this.  Phew!  I love the feeling of getting ‘my stuff done’ each day but there are some days, like today for instance, that it’s just not going to happen.

My list today is sitting right in front of me, glowing in fact, calling to me to look at it, but I am not going to, it can’t make me!!
I do procrastinate from time to time and I often wonder why?  Is there a Scientific answer?  Maybe it’s just the position of the Moon?  Here is what I found~

Contrary to popular belief, procrastinators generally aren’t perfectionists; (well that can’t be right?) instead, they’re more likely to delay tasks they’re not confident about, says researcher Piers Steel, Ph.D. (Ph.D Shmee h deee) Steel is an assistant professor in the human resources and organizational dynamics department of Canada’s University of Calgary. “Essentially, procrastinators have less confidence in themselves, less expectancy that they can actually complete a task,”  Steel says in a University of Calgary news release. 

“Perfectionism is not the culprit,” he continues. “In fact, perfectionists procrastinate less, but they worry about it more.”  Procrastination has been around ever since civilization began and “does not appear to be disappearing anytime soon,” writes Steel.

So he boiled procrastination down to a mathematical formula. (Just to confuse me personally!  On Tuesday procrastinators were given $1.00 if they did not procrastinate until noon on Wednesday, by the second Friday of the third week how many times did they procrastinate …Mathematical Trickery!)

The formula predicts procrastination based on a person’s expectation of finishing a task, the task’s importance, the person’s desire to complete the task, and how soon the task needs to be done. The formula suggests people are less likely to procrastinate if the task has to be done ASAP and they feel confident they are up to the task.  It suggests people are more likely to procrastinate if the task is less urgent, less appealing, or daunting to the person facing the task. (Yep that’s me, if it’s not captivating, or I don’t feel passionate about it, or there’s not a handsome guy to flirt with, I will go back and forth with my Monkey mind about whether it’s important enough to get done right away.)

Other factors may also be involved, Steel notes.

For example, he points out that rebellious people may tend to procrastinate tasks given by authority figures; and depressed people may procrastinate due to low energy. (Can’t it just be that we are feeling lazy today?)

More research is needed on procrastination, and the sooner, the better, Steel concludes. (His Professor asked him to conclude but he was feeling a little low energy so I will get an update soon, soon meaning sometime in the future, probably next month or next year, it really depends, I am super busy right now 🙂 )

Procrastination = Avoidance of Success. Next time you procrastinate, ask yourself why you’re avoiding success…
