I am a procrastinator of the highest magnitude. And a lazy one to boot. I can put off until Christmas whatever it is that needs doing.
Of course by then its too late or too cold or too something to do it then so it gets put off even longer. of course my aging and out of shape body doesn’t help matters. Even that is partly the result of procrastination.
I’m a bit of a pack rat too. This is particularly trouble some since I have so many crafts and creative projects that I participate in. My entire back bedroom is full of painting supplies, fabric, beads, paper, leather, sewing machines, pends, markers, sketch pads,wax dyes and more.
Projects do seem to go in stages too and I can get stuck in a stage for a long time. I love to paint small signs with maybe just one word on it like ‘ or ‘Peace’ or ‘Dream’ or maybe a phrase. I begin by priming lots of pieces of wood all at the same time. That is stage one. Then I paint the back ground color on; stage two. That takes several coats and I can easily get stuck there.
After a while I want to work on something else but there is such a mess in that room that I can’t work and I don’t want to clean up the mess so I procrastinate.
I also love books. I love the information they contain but I am ADD and have attention span of a gnat when it comes to reading. Instead of pushing through this and actually finishing a book I tend to read a few pages for a few days and then put it down. The book shelves are full of books I have not read yet.
I guess its a good things most of them are for reference anyway.
Even when I write it takes me a while to get going. I sit d own at the computer and realize I want a cup of coffee or I’m hungry and want to eat breakfast or something. Procrastination seems to be my alter ego in a way. It takes over and I let it. Question is, can I slay this dragon and get things done with more efficiency? I know I will not regret it even a little bit.
The suns is going down now and I think I will wait till tomorrow. But do I really want to do anything but relax and enjoy Easter Sunday?
