Confession Time



Verb - Delay, put off doing

People wouldn't think I was a procrastinator – a lot of it goes on in my head – I may share an intention with Mr.L  or one or two people but I won't shout it….why? 
Because then I can get out of doing it and no-one knows!!

Take Parkrun – Saturday mornings 9 o'clock – lots of my running group post their intention on line – all the people who I have taken from walking to jogging to running -  I may say quietly that I'm going to go morning the pull of a warm bed, a lie in, a cup of tea in said bed........what do I choose? You've got it! ;-)

 Yet I know if I go, I feel so refreshed, have done some exercise and am home before 10am, have seen friends and have energised myself ready for the weekend.

So later when I read about everyone getting themselves up and out I feel mad with myself….

I procrastinate about other things too, main things currently being – I cleaned half the kitchen and sorted out the kitchen cupboards – I enjoyed it, clean tidy cupboards with no unused items or out of date food, wow! The other half...
I painted the two downstairs windows on the front of my house (upstairs was done my a decorator) the front door??? Procrastination rules – the weather is too hot/too cold, it might rain, its too windy, get the picture?
My black leather boots – by the back door for 6 months – waiting – for a polish…………..gggrrrr.

Why do I do this? I have no idea, but my guess is others must do it too?
What do you think? Do you procrastinate? How do you overcome it?

I'm off to clean a pair of boots – yeah right!!!
But - I am going to Parkrun ;-0

Happy Weekend Everyone!
