I do it. A lot. All the time. I am procrastinating right now. Problem is I don't just do it for things I have to do, also for things I want to do. Stuff I want to create or dedicate time to to enjoy. I feel like there's a mental block there preventing me from doing anything so I just sit and watch videos and feel frustrated because I want to DO things but my mind is just ehhh not now. 😖

I tend to leave things I don't really want to do, but I have to do, until the pressure builds and I respond to the deadline.  If it is something I actually want to do then I will get on with it.

I'm an expert at productively procrastinating, where, instead of say, doing a tax return, I'll vacuum the carpet instead

why did you describe me ?? I have a book to read and I like it but when I want to continue reading, i'm just like "meh i'm not in the mood" but i'm never in the mood and i end up doing nothing. Same for tv shows. It's exhausting 😆

It's called executive dysfunction, it's one of the most difficult and maligned but least understood parts of many mental illnesses/neurodivergencies.

you can always tackle that later.

 

Pretty major procrastinator here - If I'm not motivated by a hard deadline, well, apparently I'm not motivated then.

I read this thread and thought 'I should get back to answering this later'.

 

I've always been a huge procrastinator. In uni I finished all my assignments, including my dissertation, last minute and although I always cursed myself for being like that I never had to face any severe consequences, so why change anything? I remember that even a couple of times when I tried to start an essay early I felt like I only got the good ideas once I was closer to the deadline.

 

I'm also a huge fan of 'productive procrastination' - basically the times my flat at uni was the cleanest was when I had deadlines haha.

People actually still iron clothes? I only own clothes which don't need ironing.

 

I am a terrible procrastinator. Developed the habit in school and uni and never lost it because there were never any negative consequences to leaving everything to the very last minute, I still got high marks in everything anyway. Also there's the autistic executive dysfunction thing... but mostly I'm just lazy and have anxiety issues which make me put things I'm worried about off for Future Me to deal with.

This is me to a tee. I got slightly better at getting my work done my second time in post secondary, but it is still my biggest downfall haha. I remember one time I was supposed to be job hunting, but instead I went to the store and got a grout brush just so I could over the top clean all the grout in the bathroom tiles... When my roommate came home and saw me she asked if I was okay haha. 

 

I liked this article. It makes a lot of sense, and I feel slightly better about my procrastination but understanding better hasn't really helped me make a big difference in it lol.

Well, I was born two weeks late...

 

That pretty much set the tone of my life.

I have putting off the thing and spending far more time worrying about putting off the thing than it would take to do the thing itself down to a fine art.

I was born a full month late! I still don't care for big changes for the most part.

As do I. Finding ways to eliminate chores altogether is even better than procrastination.
