cracking the whip on procrastination

like many of you, i am a victim of procrastination. procrastination has done horrible things to me. it has robbed me of many hours of sleep. it has made me feel less than, a loser. at the hands of procrastination, i have experienced embarrassment and hopelessness.

that’s a true story.

and.

or.

why not make procrastination work for all the space it occupies in my head? crack the whip here a bit, stop being a victim? i think i’m going to start procrastinating on

  • playing lexulous
  • eating those extra bites of cheese-drenched spaghetti
  • checking my email for the 10th time
  • interrupting people while they speak
  • taking out twice as many books from the library as i can possibly read
  • strewing my clothes all over the bedroom

what do you think? anything you’d like to procrastinate?

    Greetings,

    Sunday is a good day for procrastination on…
    getting out of bed
    getting showered and dressed
    not thinking of work or checking emails
    staying away from the computer (failed that)

    For big projects, I usually start on the day that it’s due and then work really hard the day after although it was already overdue. People who assign me work caught on and then started moving the deadlines up one day. 🙂

    Isabella,
    What an interesting approach. For me, having left my work as a therapist after 30 yrs. my list would be different. Back then I pressured myself to be overly involved in providing therapy. I would have wanted to procrastinate being a perfectionist.
    Today, I am on disability and still find myself living life as if I was still working. I would like to procrastinate trying to be overly productive each day without having some down time.
    I copied your list and plan to do my own work on it. Thanks for the post!
    Peace, Annie
