I cannot remember how often I put things off until the last hour. I am starting to guess that this is how I operate the best. I guess a lot of us perfect procrastination in college. Every one of us learn how to task best under pressure. Every one of us enroll in as several classes as the college will allow to optimize our tuition. Then when it’s time for the task to be turned in, the people I was with and I have to turn to a plan of need. I have to or need to do a particular thing. Whether the people I was with and I wait until the last hour because of our hectic schedule or because the people I was with and I need the pressure to task our best procrastination can often lead to unnecessary cost or inconveniences. I experienced this first hand when I was planning a trip during freezing weather. I was concerned that the pipes would burst in the condo while the people I was with and I were away during the freezing weather. I didn’t want to leave the heating plan running as normal so that the people I was with and I could conserve energy and save some on our utility cost. Of course, it is tempting to save a little on the electric bill by turning off the heat during this time. I rationalized that using the heat plan during this time is less expensive than a plumbing repair task if pipes freeze and burst, however at the last hour, I did some investigating into the best ways to prevent pipes from bursting, one opportunity was to keep the thermostat set to the same temperature both during the morning and at evening… Since I would be away during freezing weather, the advised temperature to leave the heat on in our home, is to set the temperature no lower than 55° F.
