We use firewood to heat our home, and every morning I go out to the firewood shed to bring in firewood for the day. I have to make several trips to bring in enough wood to heat the house for the next 24 hours (we burn 7 chords of wood per season). When I'm bringing in those pieces of wood, I evaluate them to pick the right pieces at the right time. For instance, I always try to grab wetter and more square shapes first to put on the bottom of the pile. They make a steady base, and they'll dry out more before they get used. Then I add the drier and possibly odder shapes near the top of the pile since they will be thrown into the fire sooner and they don't need to hold pieces above them.
There is one type of piece, however, that I avoid bringing in: the Saturday piece. A Saturday piece is a problem piece. It's too big or oddly shaped or wet to throw on the pile for a normal day. I'm typically gone during the day on weekdays and I don't want to make my wife deal with the odd or inconvenient piece. But on Saturdays I'm around and it's no big deal to wrestle with that piece on those days. If it's particularly wet, I leave it right in front of the fire to dry it out, and if it's really big, I get the fire nice and hot, then make space for it. The bottom line is that some wood is just going to be too much of a pain to deal with on an ordinary day and is best dealt with when I'll have time to address it without stress. Do you see where I'm going with this? It's not procrastination to identify a problem too gnarly to deal with right now and set it aside for a time when you know you can address it. Procrastination is arriving on Saturday and wimping out and opting not to deal with those pieces when I know I can. Knowing that I'll deal with those problems on the weekend gives me a Saturday peace all week long.
