Are you a procrastinator?

Would you consider yourself to be a procrastinator? Do you easily get distracted and put off projects for longer than you should?

According to, back in the 1970s only 5 percent of adults were considered to be chronic procrastinators. Today, that number is about 20 percent. Do we think it has something to do with shorter attention spans? Additionally, 25 percent of adults say that procrastination is a defining characteristic of their personality. Are you part of that 25 percent?

Back in the early 1970’s I bought a paperback for 35 cents on procrastination. I’ve never opened it. TRUE STORY !!!

OK, Robert, you’ve procrastinated long enough. I DARE you to open the paperback (and maybe even read it). 😆 Have a great day! 😀 –Diane

Nope!! I can’t sit still, gotta be doing something. I’m cleaning the dishes as my husband cooks. I’m so the opposite I would drive most people nuts.
That’s called pre-crastination.

I answered “some things” but to be more honest perhaps I should have answered talk to you in couple of days 😎

No sense in rushing things now that I’m retired. I prioritize things. A nap is usually at the top of the list.
Why do it today if it can be put off ’till tomorrow. Better yet, why put it off ’till tomorrow if you can volunteer somebody else to do it today.

Being retired, many things can wait

I’m surprised there weren’t more: “Let me tell you tomorrow…” responses 😉

Usually I “wait” to read the newsletter until night time. Bet there’s more of those that do that…

I would NOT characterize myself as a PROCRASTINATOR.
I prefer to characterize myself as a METICULOUS PLANNER.

Like most people if it needs doing I”git er done” Some things need doing but not necessarily right now.

It depends on the weather, being retired unless it’s an emergency if it’s hot or a torrential downpour it can wait for better conditions. Here in the heat of a FL summer most of my outside work happens early in the AM.
