Do Tell: Are You a Procrastinator?

Managing our time seems to be getting harder and harder with age, but sometimes having all the time in the world could be irrelevant if you're a procrastinator. When it comes to getting things done, I tend to take care of the little things first; like my dry cleaning and grocery shopping. It's the important things like getting my car serviced or going to the dentist that tend to fall by the wayside. Of course, it should be the opposite, but I guess that's why people call me a procrastinator! What about you? Do tell, would you consider yourself to be a procrastinator?

red a proscrastinator. Haha. I seriously would put off finishing a sentence. That's probably proscrastination mixed with ADD. Oops. Yeah I am always putting everything fact I haven't scheduled my fall classes for school yet...that's terrible. My daily to-do lists are exactly the same everyday b/c I never get things done.

OMG, I am soo bad about this! I won't even start on like a 15-page research paper until two days before I have to turn it in. When it comes to oil changes, I forget until I'm driving, but I'm usually on the way to do something else. I think my biggest problem is being lazy. I know I have to do something or I should, but I just put it off because I would rather be doing something else...Or better yet, nothing else!

Well, then, there you go. I have sensory issues myself, which explains why I'm easily distracted. I could NEVER survive in bootcamp (the mere idea of it freaks me out -- all that shouting and stress and whatnot).

I'm the biggest procrastintor to ever live. I didn't even send in my college applications on time.

no! i am a check list girl in the extreme. i plan everything and and anticipate what could go wrong along the way and then prepare for that/allow extra time/money whatever. i find comfort in being organized and it freaks me out when things are "let go" and last minute.

No. I do get lazy, no doubt about that, but it usually just lasts for about 5 minutes. I love working!

yes and yes. At work: It's like my mind already knows how slowly or quickly i can do something...i will always procrastinate but always make my deadlines...of course I keep the procrastination to myself so the timeline doesn't get accelerated in the future... At home: I don't do anything until I absolutely have to. its marv.

mondaymoos ..... I am never late for anything but I procrastinate like you wouldn't believe. I think it's sort of secret procrastination thought because everyone seems to think I'm always doing what I'm supposed to

Ha ha! I'm a HUGE procrastinator! I fight it, but that's part of my personality so the fight never gets any a funny joke about it yesterday: Procrastination is like masterbation....sounds like a good idea but in the end you're only fucking yourself.... LMAO too funny!

Yep, in fact I'm procrastinating right now.

myladybloom, it comes from having it instilled in bootcamp that you're late unless you're 15 minutes early. Combine that with my OCD and you've got anti-procrastination.

Big Time! SOOOO BADLY I still haven't filed my 2001, 2002, and 2003 State Taxes. I got a notice in the mail asking for my W-2s from those years. I received the notice like 2 1/2 weeks ago asking I have them to them by the 27th of July.........I'll look for them tonight.....Maybe, it's only the 23RD! I figure, they owe ME the money what's their rush to pay me? No, really I'm going to get them together tonight! I'll let you know in the morning if I do.

I am so guilty of being a procrastinator. I dunno I mean I always have a reason why whatever it is I need to do needs to wait until I do something else first. I put everything off

I think I'm ... always getting things done at last minute while I had plenty of time. However, in the same time, I always have my things done on time. Maybe at the last minute but on time. While I was at the university, I had plenty of sleepless nights (thank you caffeine) to be able to have my work done on time. Each time, I was saying that it would never happen again. And guess what ...

Aw, Fallen stole my comment! It's okay, I'll think of a better a while. I think I'm more of an avoider than a procrastinator. I'll do everything that I don't NEED to do before the things that I should. Sometimes it works out- I happened to completely organize my bathroom shelves while NOT reading an important business contract!
