I Am A Bit Of A Procrastinator--What About You?

Are you ready for Christmas? Have you decorated? Is your shopping done? Are your gifts all wrapped? Have you mailed your Christmas cards?

Well, I got my shopping done early as usual--I really like that part. My Christmas letter and cards got out last week so I'm in good shape there. I decorated a little for several days when I had that bad cold so decorating is done. The gifts are wrapped and under the tree.

I am a Bit of a Procrastinator

You tend to get things done in a timely manner, but you can't help but put off tasks you hate.
(I hate dusting, vacuuming, washing windows and that's why it's a good thing Gerard takes care of all this because if it were up to me, it wouldn't get done nearly as often as it should.)

You have no problem getting the fun or easy stuff done. You generally enjoy taking care of responsibilities. However, if a task arises that you dislike, it might get shelved for a long time.

And even though it's human nature to procrastinate, your procrastination is hindering your productivity. (Oh well, I am productive enough--just look at how many posts I've done on this blog!)

Take a look at the things you are putting off doing. Do they really need to be done? (Currently, I'm not putting off anything--I'm all caught up.)

Complete any task that's important. The other stuff you're procrastinating is probably not worth doing.

How can I break out of the habit of being a procrastinator?

You and I finally came out the same. I'm a bit of a procrastinator too.

I'm ready for Christmas though. Everything is done.

Have a terrific day. :)

Baby Names: Don't know if you can. It may be just the way you are, but I would suggest prioritizing a list of things that need to be done and then choosing the 3-5 things that are most necessary to do and try to do those today.

Sandee: That's good, Merry Christmas!

I was going to comment, but decided to wait until later!

Just dropped by from SITS to say hi!

I'm definitely a procrastinator; I work very well under pressure. Just wish I could avoid procrastinating, haha.

My result was I'm a total procrastinator. Guess that's true now that I'm retired.
