Why do we not do the things we know we should? I have a long history of procrastination. It's a wonder I get anything done. With writing I'm fairly good about not procrastinating. As of this morning I've written 30,000 words this year on a novel. I'm good with that. It's the difficult things that I procrastinate on. Or those things I perceive as difficult.
I've been meaning to have a difficult conversation with my son for a while. I pushed it off on my husband but he's no better than I am. I finally had the conversation and it wasn't difficult or hard at all. Check that one off my list.
Grading my daughters work. That's one I hate. I haven't graded her work in the week since we went back to school. Got that one done and it was easy. My son's work, that’s a different story. He's behind and going to have to school on the weekends until he gets caught up. Great, another difficult conversation with him.
Then there are the things around the house. I hate paying the bills. We have the money to pay them I just hate having to pull everything together and make those decisions. I also procrastinate with going to the doctor.
Maybe the reason I don't procrastinate with my writing is I'm busy not doing everything else and fill that time with writing. Oh well, it's off to work on writing and not pay the bills. Where do you fit into the procrastination game?
