- Prioritize This -

Procrastination is simply setting a task to the lowest priority - lower than checking Facebook and surfing the 'net. Addiction is simply setting a task to the highest priority - just below eating and sleeping, or possibly even above it. Once we realize this, we don't have to take a passive stance on procrastination and addiction:

- procrastination and addiction are simply setting priorities
- ultimately, we control our priorities
- if we want, we can defeat addiction by setting other things as "higher priority"
- ditto with procrastination

Incidentally, when a productive task becomes an addiction, great things can be achieved.
