This week, Essie has dared us to admit what we procrastinate on. Things we put off doing until the last second was days ago.
In the interest of time, I decided to just list what I DON’T procrastinate doing. Are you ready? Here’s my list:
Phew! Sorry if I went into too much detail there! Didn’t want to miss anything!
Seriously. I procrastinate doing EVERYTHING. Even things I WANT to do. Hungry? I’ll wait til I’m sick to go get food. Excited to go somewhere? I’ll wait until five minutes after when Google maps tells me I should leave. Wanted to get something done all week month year? When I finally have the time I’ll sit and stare at my often-blank computer screen instead.
Oh yeah. It’s that bad.
The most annoying procrastination for me or that I hate to leave somewhere. Even if I don’t want to be there, leaving is hard. So I will put off leaving until I’m late to wherever I’m going. And I HATE being late places, so then I’m all stressed out!
(I’m sure you can imagine how well that goes over with clients, too.)
So I try not to make extra stops. If I’m out I get all my errands done, because “just running into the house” will take all evening! And in these ways, I try to stay only a LITTLE behind.
And on the upside for my clients, it means they usually get more than the hour of training they paid for!
Now go on over to Essie’s and link up to play along! She lists housecleaning as her big procrastination…which I think is cheating. I mean, does anyone NOT put off housekeeping chores???
