    I will never put off until tomorrow, what I can forget
    about forever.

    My way is to put it off till it festers and causes heart palpitations, ulcers and or /anxiety attacks. This keeps an ordinary day infused with paranoia and adrenaline.
    That way when you get around to the task, you've got even more to bitch about!

    I always work ahead. Seems like I don't have any choice. Right now, I'm getting Xmas together. Otherwise, it won't happen.

    I use work as a means to put off doing the things I enjoy. Sometimes I am powerless.

    I wonder if you get some sort of endorphin release when you're procrastinating. It's always so damn pleasurable, almost up there with snoozing.

    Sigh...it is so difficult to get things done when all you want to do is surf the net and watch ongoing gadget auctions.

    I'd use procrastination to get stuff done.
    Like in college, when I had to write a big paper,
    I'd clean my dorm room and do laundry.

    My firm experience is that many tasks and problems will just go away if you let them wait. [​IMG]
