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.

everyday's check in.

Tihs week I am going to go through my clothing and get rid of stuff. Instead of putting it way to sell later I will take it to the thrift store THAT DAY. Bag it up, hawl it away.

Got some stuff done.

I got my house cleaned up. I got two bags of clothing to take to the thrift store. I reorganized my dressers.
I have yet to go through closets but its a good start. At least I have breathing room and dont have that anxiety looking at the mess..
Now I want to keep at it but that feels like procrastination for my real (moneymaking) work.
I would love to get my house looking like I just moved in. I guess thats an imposibility at the moment.
In the meantime I can congratulate myself on what I have accomplished. I can have guests over with out feeling embarassed.

Good for you!

My wife and I are moving out of a house, and we're measuring progress in terms of boxes and bags, too. Remember to keep starting and keep making progress, and soon you'll start on the last box or bag!


Can I come over and help you

Can I come over and help you move? I am great at that stuff as long as it is not mine.
This weekend I got more house cleaning done. I made dinner for a friend.
Did not work on my taxes.

It's a pity we can't all do a swap

Procrastinators seem to be better at helping other people out than we are at helping ourselves out. If we could find someone of a like-mind IRL we could buddy up and motivate each other. In the meantime, I'm grateful to meet cyber-buddies!


Yeah.. I just volentered to

Yeah.. I just volentered to work at a wedding when I really need to be at my studio getting a deadline met.
But it will be fun and social. I have neglected the social in my life and have to get it back. That isolation can make me procrastinate.
So can a sunny day.......
So can a cloudy day..........
The kittys need petting........
Oh! Is that a cookie I see on the counter...?

Life doesn't have to be "work work work"

You're right -- don't forget to spend time on yourself as well as on your work. "The Now Habit" recommends this, but I think it's also just plain good for your mental health.

Life is not meant to be total drudgery, devoid of all joy. Once you can assure yourself that your fun and rewards will come, you may find yourself able to do more work.

(Oh, kitties! And cookies!)
