Cost/Benefit

Sometimes, instead of doing productive things I choose to spend hours meticulously rating and organizing my iTunes music collection.

Sometimes I refresh Google Reader until a new post shows up, or I refresh Facebook until I see something I want to comment on.

Sometimes I watch movie trailers, or read video game forums, or watch episodes for TV shows in chronological order.

Sometimes I clean my house to avoid doing something more productive. Sometimes I do something productive to avoid having to clean my house.

Sometimes I say home instead of going out, for no reason at all.

Sometimes I sleep in for 15 extra minutes, and then arrive late to work, and then spend the next three or four hours tense and frustrated that I was late again.

If I could change anything about myself, it would be the wonky cost/benefit analysis I seem to apply on a day to day basis.
