I so wish this were my way of avoiding unpleasant or disproportionately-fear-producing activities.
At least I'd have a clean house at the end...sadly this is not what I do...
I do café's.
I do singing.
I do Words With Friends.
I do fun stuff!
But at the end of the day I'm still left with the task AND the rest of my life to clean, vacuum, shop, walk, and launder for...sigh...
I've even procrastinated doing fun things, things I love doing, like writing blog posts or artwork!
In my usual way I won't prescribe anything to you about how to stop procrastinating or the psychology behind it or any other intelligent means to a productive end...sometimes all that matters is putting it out there, for out-there-sake...this would be one of those times.
I had a great week last week, lots of productive work, making some great contacts for future business, approval to do my workshop for the City of Fremantle's Positive Ageing sector, and plenty of conversations that will lead to inspiring others to live their lives fully and passionately...
I know, you're laughing at the irony of this post now, aren't you? I'd be laughing, too if I weren't mildly embarrassed by it!
But that busy, productive week was what made me feel like I'd done enough and could take a full day off for the first time since beginning my business a year ago.
That was yesterday...and it felt so great that my day off turned into two! Granted it was the weekend, but as a new business owner who operates part of her work on weekends, they just don't carry the same weight as if I'd been a 9-5 person.
So here I am nearing the end of Sunday, and it just feels too good to get anything done! Not even cleaning...yuck!
I can switch into procrastination mode all too easily, free from much guilt, but eventually this does catch up with me. I still have cleaning to do, I still have that phone call to make that I really don't want to make, and this on top of the really great work that I want to do, but feel I have to get the unpleasant stuff out of the way first...what a perfect conundrum I've set up for myself, hey?
Do you do that, too? What's your procrastination technique?
Do you procrasticlean? And if so...can you come over and do it here once you've finished your house?
For another day, I am passionately yours,
Here you will find the musings of me...
