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.

Introduction: Hi Everyone

Hello! I have been a procrastinator for what seems like most of my life.  As the years go by it gets progressively worse.  It was easy to get away with in mid-school and high school.  Got a bit harder in college and as an adult in the 'real world' it is terrible!!

Due to my procrastination, I have dug myself a deep hole that scares the crap out of me.  The thing is, I know what I should be doing.  I even know what I want to do.  But something stops me from taking action.  To the outside world it looks like I just don't care and that I am lazy but that is the farthest thing from the truth.  I DO CARE! There are so many things I want to do and be but it's like my mind and body automatically become paralyzed with fear and then I start to overthink things which leads to more fear.  This is when I usually escape into mindless activities including day dreaming, surfing the net, tv, etc...

I am sick and tired of not living my life to the fullest.  Tired of feeling like a little mouse stuck in a maze with no way out.  Deep down at my core, I know my true self is there waiting to be set free and it's time to start knocking down the wall, piece by piece.

I am very, very grateful I found this group.  After reading through some of the forum comments and articles it is very comforting to realize that I am not alone in this. 

Thanks for reading. 





Hey Onestep,

What you describe exactly sounds like my problem. I think we are exactly at the right place to get this handled.

Good luck to you, and you are not alone :)

Thanks Macreed

Good luck to you as well!!

Welcome Onestep!

Embrace the suck!

Thanks for that Journey

When I first read your comment, besides making me smile I thought to myself, "Well, right now I am sucking at embracing the suck!"

Throughout the morning while I've been taking care of my clients, I can't get those three words out of my head!  And, that's a good thing!!

welcome onestep

your timeline sounds close to mine. I got by with As and Bs in h.s. and college and could have done better. My early career was similar, and my mid to late career is where it showed up. Oh plus the car and house maintenance and bills. It shows up there, too.

Many, many people get helped here. This is a magic place. Be sure to check out the daily thread (upper right) and the "chatbox". These are our main hang-outs.

There are terrific people in this fellowship! All co-sufferers / co-recoverers
