I Procrastinate

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 31,840 People

    So what's the use in doing anything,

    when the rules are going to change the night before the deadline anyway, no matter how many or early proposals, mock-ups and revisions you do? And no I can't really give the specifics, but it's a more general question anyway :)

    Sometimes I'd rather just bury my head in the

    sand & let the **** hit the fan. Then clean up the mess afterwards. I just can't face my reality head on sometimes. that's why my life gets so ******. Example: bill collector calls ignore ignore .... Call me after I get another job. How's that going? Return to top of...

    I have a huge problem doing things

    that don't challenge me, and I have an urge to just have someone else do it. This is a very bad habit and it needs to stop, for if I can't do the little things who says that I can do the even bigger things? In my childhood, I was raised on a farm and basically I was a slave for...

    Time Optimist

    Someone described me as a time optimist. I don't just put things off till the last minute - when the last minute arrives I try to fit in a few other things too - and inevitably end up late! Anyway sounds more positive than "procrastinator" and has an inbuilt excuse!

    I'm Only Writing This Because I'm Putting Off Doing Important Stuff

    What causes procrastination? I think it is fear.  Fear that I won't be able to complete the task - or do it well enough.  Fear that it may involve me getting my hands dirty or have repercussions. Fear that it may attract criticism.  Fear that it may turn...
