Sometime Today, Please!
I am all for slowing down and taking my sweet time! However, there are times I go there and turn into a procrastinator. I either let things slide or try catching up. I cannot seem to get started and if I do I cannot stick with it and start thinking about the next thing! It is way more than just being lazy.
#1 Reason – My Inner Perfectionist is a Control Freak!
Plain and Simple – Perfectionism can make one a Procrastinator! Everything and Anything has to be PERFECT. It is exhausting, it wastes my time and it is just plain silly for my sanity!

#2 Reason – Stressed Out and Just Plain Frustrated
The main reason I procrastinate is because I am stressed out and just plain frustrated! I do not want to do something, so the next best thing is to hold my ground and keep putting it off. I hope that it just DISAPPEARS if I wait long enough! I do not necessarily give up, but just go away for a while already.

#3 Reason – Disruptions, Distractions, Busyness – Oh My The Craziness!
I blame my procrastination on disruptions, distractions and busyness! Then you throw in the craziness and chaos. Pretty much go into protection mode and screw everything else for a while!
Look! Squirrel with Cookie.
#4 Reason – Tired and/or Bored
I am pretty good at playing the tired and/or bored card at times! I feel like my brain just decided to turn itself off. Nope, not happening, not going to work today! There is just no clarity in my muddled and sleep deprived brain. Good Luck with getting my two feet working let alone prioritizing or multitasking throughout my day!
I have very little to no patience, so I do not do well with boredom either! There is nothing that zaps my energy faster than being bored. If I learned anything growing up it is not telling your mother you are bored and then throw in that you are tired too! I think this is the main reason I am a questioner, a challenger and a tryer of new things.
