Procrastinating

Procrastinating - we are guilty of having done this at one time or another.

Do you find yourself putting off doing something then at the last minute having to scramble to get it done?

Is there something that is always or regularly on your procrastination list?

The silverware sitting in the sink. I am going to clean them. Right after I make a fresh pot of coffee. Oh wait. That was yesterday's excuse. Maybe I should just stick to the established schedule I have used over the years. Wait until I have no more clean ones in the drawer. So I either wash them or eat with my fingers.

I have a list of projects on my computer to remind me there are things I should do.

I always put off things to the last minute. I find I handle a project better/more efficiently if there's a little pressure.

During my working years I learned to push through it.

Make a list each morning and rank the tasks, the most dreaded first!

Get it done and out of the way instead of fussing about it for hours or even days!

You will feel liberated and in control, for a minute or two!

I never said it did me any good. I just said I have a list.
