Cool thread. Thus far, I can only think of my many procrastinations. No triumphs to document.

I'll have to get busy. Right after I check 'Active Topics.'

Well I'd count going to study Spanish in Mexico as a pretty major triumph.

I was going to try the shower cap over the smoke detector method. Though if I ever had one, it's more than likely that it was in the medicine cabinet.


This is so freaky. Driving to work this morning I suddenly thought about shower caps. Who still uses a shower cap? Proper ladies of a certain age who get their hair styled weekly no doubt. But what's a bit humiliating is that if I clean out that bottom drawer in the bathroom, I probably still have one I filched from a hotel with the sewing kit and shoeshine cloth.

OMG, that's right. And I had to save up to be able to go, which is a pretty major triumph of will and determination over procrastination.

But my plane is leaving in the morning and I should be finishing up my packing and here I sit, checking 'active topics.'

I think I have 'terminal' procrastination :blink:

My mild ( :blink: ) addiction to ebay, forums and you tube have added to my lifelong problem with procrastination. It doesn't help that I work from home in front of a computer most days. I've decided to buy a laptop without a wireless connection and go to the library for at least 4-5 hours a day.

This is a fine thread, but I'm not sure it's having a positive effect on me. If all the other kids are doing it, why shouldn't I?

eda: Perhaps it's improving my self-esteem.

I'm going to be cheeky and add another item to your list: blog and take pictures. :D

4:35 PM: Finished the first draft of one of two books that must be completed before I leave on vacation in not quite 3 weeks.

6:35 PM: Nearly finished compiling tax info.

This means I can sleep in tomorrow AND that I'll have the time to start my seeds.

Dammit, again I procrastinate about one bill until the day it is due, and get hit with an express payment charge.

Is there therapy for this? I mean, I derive no benefit from paying bills of this size at the last possible moment. It is not like there are thousands of dollars accruing interest every day they remain in my account: yet I still do it.
