Jan 3: Procrastination

Do you have a tendency to procrastinate, or do you like checking things off your to-do list?


I think that about 80% of the time, all I do is procrastinate… the remaining 20% is that time when I get super productive and want to do everything all at once and get everything done – and at those points, you just need to stay out of my way, or I’ll end up losing my shit.

When it comes to my blogging, it’s been difficult to keep up to date with posting daily, and as a result, I ended up with almost twenty posts to write in the space of a day just so I can catch up.

And the holidays are the worst time for it. Sleeping in, staying in my pj’s all day, living on the couch watching catch-up tv… when in actual fact, I should be getting my arse into gear – get up early, go outside into the sunshine, go to the gym and do a workout (ugh) – get all the ‘work’ out of the way so then I can come home and relax.

…but I don’t.

At the moment all I want to do is stay in my pj’s and play Playstation all day long and eat nothing but chocolate… however, apparently, wanting to do that is frowned upon by some people.

On the flip side, there is something I find deeply satisfying about being able to check-off on a list of objectives, as Hulk calls it. Not that I make many of them, but on those occasions when I do, it’s always great to see everything on that list ending up crossed-out. I really should be making those more often… but that’s just not how I roll.
