Procrastination… procrastina-a-tion is makin’ me late

Procrastination

I am listening to an audiobook about procrastination in my car.  The author says that we are inspired to stop procrastinating when the pain of doing so is great enough.

If that’s the case, I have a very high pain tolerance. What am I procrastinating on right now?  I’ll limit this to the first 10 things that come to mind, since there is not enough time in the day to make a comprehensive list.

  • Clearing off my desk.
  • Filing papers.
  • Doing laundry.
  • Getting tax papers in order.  (Of course, I filed an extension!)
  • Getting my Girl Scout financials in.  (They were due June 30th.  I was the Service Unit Manager at the time… basically, the one in charge.)
  • Planning our trip to Europe.
  • Mowing the lawn.  (Luckily, it is pretty much dead right now.)
  • Writing my first book.
  • Going to the gym.
  • Getting my car into the shop.  (It is late for its routine service and now is making a Very Disturbing Noise.)

Yeah…  I’ve got a problem.  Some of those should be causing pain serious enough to make me stop.  I need to add procrastination to the list of things I need to get rid of.  Heck, I need to add a lot of bad habits to that list.

  • {Clutter} released: A handful of stuff from the junk drawer, including a step counter I never liked, a cell phone case, a broken magnet, and a bunch of random bits.
