I am the queen of procrastination. I purchased a book about overcoming procrastination and have not gotten around to reading it yet; I’d rather read something else. Every day at work I look at what’s on my desk, my to-do list, and decide most of it can be done the next day; so I chose the one I’d prefer to do rather than the one that is priority. I look at the laundry every day and think that I need to get to it, but don’t actually until I literally have no more underwear. And the list goes on and on.
I often find myself making up excuses, the most common one being that I’m too tired or not feeling well and tomorrow I’ll feel better and be up to it. The age-old excuse of “I work better under pressure” is somewhat true, I rarely let something of major importance go; I just end up rushing and going crazy to get it done last-minute. However, there are many less important things that do fall thru the cracks due to this bad habit. I know it annoys the crap out of my family and friends too.
So, do you consider yourself a procrastinator? Or if you’re a recovering procrastinator, how did you overcome it? Frankly, there’s a part of me that isn’t really interested in overcoming it, that would mean having to do all those things I really don’t want to do.
