It's almost a cruel joke, isn't it. Do you procrastinate across the board, or only certain things?
I procrastinate via distractions. When I'm about to approach something I need/want to do, I find something else I'm needing/wanting to do, and when I near that task, another need/want arises - or I go back to the first - and nothing ever really gets finished. Or if I somewhat complete something I find a flaw or something unsatisfactory about it and have to redo it. Ugh!
everyone procrastinates a bit, but it becomes a problem when you procrastinate every day ,50 times a day, and you dont cant get anything done because you dont feel like it, and you probably wont feel like it tomorrow and the next day and so on.
When I have something important to do, I find great pleasure procrastinating by doing other chores. For example, I have an assignment due for Thursday, but any time I go to start it, I end up doing something else completely different, but still semi-productive.
I usually tidy my entire room then turn to Youtube and learn lots about some completely unrelated topic to what I'm supposed to be learning about. Lately I've been learning a lot about Chemistry and Math...which sadly isn't relevant to what I'm supposed to be doing..heh.
I struggle with it all the time. the hardest thing is because I feel so depressed when I contemplate how I will overcome or get something done-
but I managed to find a way to crow bar my way out. I use a to do list and calendar and write that out everyday. I am not successful every day, I just keep returning to it. it is still a struggle.
I think some days it may be related to fatigue, but even when I feel good and energized I have trouble focussing and getting things done. Even house hold chores, which is why my place is almost always a mess.
I find though that being accountable for goals is about the only thing that gets me going. For example, when someone visits I don't want my place to be a mess so I clean. Sadly it doesn't really come naturally and when I do it, it's a struggle, especially when tired.
I sometimes find writing a goal down, doing it and having small meditation breaks inbetween helps.
Yes, I'm a master of procrastination. All that goal setting, writing a to-do list stuff just sounds unappealing and ineffective to me. Sometimes though, I do actually get work done, usually when the deadline is only hours away. Starting the work is difficult but becomes more tolerable after 10 minutes or so.
I'm the queen of procrastination. My life has been at a standstill for 6 years, all because of ruddy anxiety... Makes you especially comscious of it when you're the last of your acquaintances to marry/have kids/have a proper career etc.
