The Procrastination List


A Field Guide to Procrastinators - 12 Types of Procrastinators - Find the procrastinator in you


I have a problem. I’d love to tell you about it…another time.


Okay, here the thing, I procrastinate. There are just some things I do NOT want to do. Eventually they pile up, and I have to suffer through Procrastination Catch-up Day. Today is that day.


I started by making a list. After all, why not start by doing a task other than one of those pesky put off chores. So, I made my list and quickly came up with twenty-two items I’ve been avoiding. I’m sure I missed quite a few, but we’re not going to worry about that.


The list gives me an interesting picture. There’s nothing about writing, or reading, or exercising. I do those without being told. Many of the things revolve around communications, like letters that need writing, or phone calls that need making. Introvert to the end!


I can’t avoid the list any longer, even by writing this post, so off I go. I’ll start with number one then work my way down.


Maybe not. Number two doesn’t excite me. I can do that later.


What about you? Do you put off tasks? How do you catch up?
