It always helps to know people depend on me to do something on time.

I mostly procrastinate with things that affect me (worst case, I know).

Let me tell you that to me procrastinating is a sin. When you procrastinate and leave things for tomorrow things just pile up and the burden becomes heavier and heavier because what you didn’t do today will add up to the things that will have to be done tomorrow.

Another way of looking at it if you are going to procrastinate NEVER please I beg you, never let it be visiting an old grandma or that person sick in a Hospital for tomorrow is never guaranteed.

My 90 year old grandma RIP always said since I was a little girl ‘‘never leave for tomorrow what you can do today bc you never know if tomorrow will ever come’’. At the time her words always scared me but I realized she meant you might not do something today that tomorrow might be too late to do.

Someone that I loved died and it was knowing the things we did together that brought me comfort bc I never procrastinate to do the things for another day. If I had, I wouldn’t be able to live with myself thinking about the things I didn’t do bc I ‘‘procrastinate’’ and decided to leave it for the next day that never came for the one I loved and lost.

This may sound too dramatic and drastic but I just want you to know to be careful and don’t get use to the spirit of procrastination for it can become a bad habit.

Usually to stop procrastinating, I leave my phone upstairs. To prevent me from doing anything else from the computer, I put on music (5 hr studying music) and play it so I don’t change the channels and watch anything on youtube. I keep the Viki tab shut :smiley:

When it comes to people, I don’t. Like you said tomorrow is never guaranteed and well, when you say you’re going to come or do something to someone then that person relies on you and expect you to respect your words so in such case, I just do things right away otherwise, I’ll forget after.
But when it comes to my things, my personal stuff, lord knows I’m super lazy ! All my childhood my mother told me the same as your grandma : “don’t leave for tomorrow what you can do today”. But when it concerns me, I don’t know, I just minimize the thing and put it on the side for later then one day I’ll just do everything at once and ended up exhausted from the load of work. Even when I tell myself “let’s do things on time”, it just lasts 2 days, then I’m back at leaving things for tomorrow ! ><
It’s indeed a bad habit because the only one that is penalized is me !

I don’t want any. I like procrastinating. I start and finish a lot of things while procrastinating. It shortens my to-do list.
