I suffer from it. I’m especially suffering from it right now, even as I write this brief post. I put off doing things while I watch other things pile up in front of me. Sadly, the end result is usually in disappointing people.
I’m usually guilty of procrastination when things are running smoothly. Circumstances in my life have caused me to be “on call” a great deal. I don’t even mean this as a big complaint, just that my time is in demand, surprisingly, and there’s only one of me, ya know? So I need to figure out how to spread me around and still have time for the people that matter to me.
I’m sure I’ll figure it out.
I’m sure it will involve embracing “No.”
I think I can handle that. “No.”
That was easy. “No, thank you.” Ah, much better.
“No, I can’t do that right now.” Nope. That implies I might do it later. No. Nope. Not a chance.
Okay, well, I’m going to go practice.

If there’s a good movie on TV, that’s when I’m at my weakest for procrastination. Otherwise, I’m pretty good at getting the to-do list done before I start to play.
I love your letter cards. So pretty and elegant! Stopping in from A-Z!
Reblogged this on The Eclectic Attick and commented:
I can commiserate or start a support group? I too am a procrastinator and it seems I procrastinate the worst on those things that would make my life better. For other people, I’m a serial helper. I’m always helping out. Lending a hand. Only to find out that I have no hands left to do my own things.
Strange how that is?
guilty as charged, my fellow procrastinator! funny how that it is.
