Cheap substitions for real learning?

I just read this blog post from Dan. I love his point--what are we doing instead of doing what's really important, which begs the question, "What should I stop doing so I have more time for x?" Insert whatever it is that you are not doing right now, but that you've been meaning to get to for however long. In my home life, maybe I should stop watching American Idol and spend that time reading one of the many books on my "want to read" list. In my teaching, maybe I could have stopped doing the I poem activity and focus on the rhythm of poetry instead. Sometimes doing is a cheap substitution for changing. Change is hard. But what good might come of it?
