Hi, my name is Linda and I am also a procrastinator!!! I always say "don't do today what you can put off until tomorrow"....but sometimes tomorrow doesn't come if I don't like whatever it is that I have to do.

Hi Brittany, My name is Char and I am a procrastinator too! I do the same thing you do, I figure I can do it later or the next day and when that time comes, I seem to never have the time to do it. I realize then that if I would have done it back when I figured knew I had to do it, it would have been done and gone....when will I ever learn!! [i]Happy MyLotting, Char[/i]

Hahahahaha I am NOT that bad though,, If i make plans i usually stick to them and make them in advanced so i know everything will go right and not fall apart right before... and for frineds like that I just wouldnt ever make plans or depend on them for anything important.. I dont think i could handle that either haha

Haha.. I am the Last Minute Kind of person.. that explains why I am always rushing around. In the morning, I'll always laze in bed and as a result, I always have little time left and I have to end up rushing. However, when it comes to work, I'll finish it quick as I do the things I hate to do fast so that I can later enjoy doing the things I love.

Hello xXxMikesWifeyxXx I am absolutely not a procrastinator.I am a activist. If i have a mind in my head now,i will put it into practice immediately. I always make a schedule every day when i waken up in the morning.So i will arrange everything well in the day. what i should do today,what i would do tomorrow.never put the today's things to tomorrow.It is not good to me.lol good luck,my friend

Hahaha i see "success log" mabey i should take some lessons from you.funny how your name could go along with this discussion. what you say i see is true by your name. I would LOVE to be that way... somtimes i get an idea of somthing to do and im really excited about doing it and then i think baout how much work it would take and then im like eh. okay mabey ill do that later hahaa. somtimes though if i really need to get things done the night before i make a small list and mark off as i go. there is sometimes were i complete my list. but i get distracted VEARY easily..like i could be doing work and a friend calls and is like hey wanna go here or there.. i usually do it and then never get back to what i was doing before haha..

Procrastination is my middle name. But I'm seriously trying to break that horrible habit. It's so stressful putting things off until that last minute. I've realized that tomorrow never comes and by the time you finally get down to business..the list of things to get done has grown to monsterous proportions. It can be overwhelming and seem hectic. I've become a huge list writer. I jot down little things here and there and when they're finished I mark them off. That way I can see what I've done and it looks like I'm getting somewhere. Having a terrible memory makes it even worse. The lists help with that as well. :)

There is one thing that I don't like to do. It comes back to bite me if I procrastinate or wait until the last minute. I don't like doing that at all. I have always been the type of person who likes to get things done now so I can relax. I think it is a bad practice to wait until tomorrow. Just get it done as soon as possible and then you can have time to do something else you would like to do.

I have become the kind of person that will get things done right away because I have let things go until the last minute a lot that that is never good lol. I keep telling myself when I get it done, it's done so I have time later to do what I want.
