“I think of myself as something of a connoisseur of procrastination,
creative and dogged in my approach to not getting things done.”
I can totally relate to this quote! I am a very good procrastinator. In fact, I am a PROcrastinator. There are so many things I can think of to do other than what needs to be done. I never run out of ideas of how to put off doing something.
For example, my kitchen. It took eight months to get the cabinets installed. The first cabinets were one inch wider than the wall. The second ones came in damaged. The third time was a charm…sort of…all I can say is that there are cabinets on the wall and they are fine but not exactly what I wanted. I was not happy waiting to get the work done and I complained.
Which brings us to the second part of the project, my part of the work to be done. The walls need to be sanded, primed and painted. After six weeks the walls are sanded and partially primed…no painting has been done. Why the delay? I do not like to sand, prime, paint and I do not like to be on a ladder. So, I have found other things to do. I read, play games on my Kindle, go for walks, take naps, important stuff like that. Oh, and I complain about my procrastinating and not getting anything done.
I have made the decision, a promise to myself, that the work will be completed this month. Well, almost completed. The lower cabinets (that I did not replace) need to be sanded, primed and painted. The procrastination should not be as prolonged because no ladders will be involved.
I will have pictures of the finished kitchen…someday.
Are you a procrastinator?
Does it bother you or do you just accept it as
one of the quirks to love about you?
