I am a world class procrastinator. I know it. Everyone who knows me, knows it. My offspring have all inherited my procrastinating tendencies which is quite sad really. They could have ended up with one or two of my better points ( in fairness, they have) but they each took a double helping of the one thing that I would not wish on them. I've been thinking about all the ways I find to avoid doing stuff. The really weird thing is I only procrastinate over thing that I want to do. I know I'm doing it. I can hardly avoid it, can I? So for those who can't think of a good excuse not to do something try these for size
1. All time favorite -- tidy my desk. This one has legs, because not only do I waste an enormous amount of time doing it, I then can't find anything and so I get to waste even more time searching for stuff.
2. If tidying the desk fails, or if it hasn't been long enough for my accumulation to need removal, I dust. I can while away a merry hour or two flitting about with a swiffer. I really hate to dust so this is a sign of desperation. I give myself extra points for dusting my desk. The spouse is not amused when I dust. He has allergies.
3. Play computer games. The current time-sink is Jewel Quest. It's taken me six months but I'm on the final bonus round. So I have to either slow down or dig out Mahjong again.
Give me something I don't like and I whip it out in record time. I am a very odd person.
