Procrastinators Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from chronic procrastination.

Hello all,


As I write this I'm 'procrastinating' from something else..  namely, I'm in the supposedly-last year of my degree program and the work has become largely self-paced.  ..Terrible for me!!  Not sure what else to say, but I did want to post in the intro forums before posting elsewhere.

I would like to use the check-in board, but it seems that by posting there you must have a list of things you would like to do.  I have a lot of trouble making plans in the first place, has any one else been with/around/through that? 





Welcome k3 & others

Check out this great introduction by wkinprogress

Don't worry about having a todo list to check in - start by just showing up in the chatbox or checkin thread.   


Be confident.  Stay focused.   One thing at a time.

agree: to-do list not required!

I wholeheartedly agree with journey, and interesting this helped me see how the forum might look to a new person. Of course most of the time i'm blinded by my own perspective of how it looks so familiar to me.

I can totally imagine myself feeling even intimidated by everyone and their to-do list posted in the daily check in thread. Gosh, it could even look like, "wow, look at all the organized, productive people."

Of course, i know that all these people are at various places in their recovery. I remember the days when they couldnt post a to-do list or didnt do anything on them. I myself have certainly been there many times, and i will probably be there again someday. Hopefully less often as my recovery progresses.

So in an ideal world a person like me, starting out on this forum, with all my weakness and failure, could look at the daily check-in thread and NOT think, "wow, these people are more disciplined than me", but rather, "wow, these people have struggled as much as i have, some even more, and look at what they've done with themselves."

Hi K,I haven't been

Hi K,

I haven't been posting there as well because I have trouble coming up with my list in the first place. Frown But I do keep poking around and get inspired by seeing others get moving and just keep trying. Slowly, the belief that we can do it and get going ourselves may manifest itself.



Welcome k3drama!

This is a late welcome as I was away on holiday but was sorry to see you had not been welcomed here.

Hope that has not put you off and that you will come back. Take a look at the resources on the site - some that have helped me are chat box, daily forum posting and the weekly online meeting.

Re plans - I find I have to put aside time for my planning, even though this can seem like a waste and that I should just be able to plunge in. The times I do best are when I have made a list and sorted my priorities.
