Procrastination ... and reverse procrastination?

Does this happen to anyone else?

I'll set a goal to do XYZ ... but first, just a quick look at the e-mail. And a post to Facebook. And so on. 

BUT -- I'm not finished yet.

If I decide to do NOTHING, to allow myself to put my feet up and procrastinate ... first, I'd better do just a little bit of XYZ. You know, the productive thing I meant to do last time.

I suspect it wouldn't work that way if I tried it on purpose. To tell myself I was going to procrastinate when I really wanted to do the productive XYZ thing.

But maybe I'll try that.
