Procrastination is my middle name and it is way past time to change that.
At home it is five minutes at my computer before I do <insert task, chore, anything that needs to be done here> and next thing I know it is 10:00pm and I should be in bed. But I have successfully avoid the task that I was supposed to do. Damn it, I'll do it tomorrow ... after I check my e-mail, facebook and twitter and I should probably check here for comments (even though I get e-mail notifications) and something interesting may have happened on twitter or facebook while I was doing that.
At work it is a quick break from whatever task is melting my brain to organize a pile of papers into proper files and next thing I know the office looks like something has exploded in it because I have decided to organize while taking a break from the brain melting task. Organizing which no doubt involves making piles of things that I don't want to deal with at the moment and will procrastinate finishing until some day when I am procrastinating doing something else.
(Right about now, I hope my boss doesn't read my blog! Although, if you are reading, I assure you that all the really important, time sensitive stuff gets done on time. Usually, I think!)
So, please people, I need some suggestions, what is a better middle name for me to adopt? Procrastination just isn't working for me anymore. It is bad enough that I procrastinate when it comes to things that I don't like doing or that cause my brain to melt, but when it comes to doing things that I like, that's a sign that it is getting a little out of hand.
I should go start making Christmas cards . . . but I think I will go get a drink first and then check Facebook and Twitter. By then it will be too late to be bothered starting. Maybe tomorrow would be a good time to start. Or next week? I still have a month before they have to be in the mail . . .
