12 types of procrastinators

Really, this isn’t a 12 types of procrastinators thing so much as 12 ways to procrastinate. AKA check all that apply (I bet, if you’re anything like I am, you’ll be checking at least four if not 11 of these off on your I-am-a-procrastinator list) Funnily enough, a good 50% of these are “productive” procrastination. Like cleaning your entire apartment instead of working. I don’t tend to panic anymore, the way I did in college. But that’s because deadlines at work are so much tighter turnaround than school, that it’s not an option. As for personal work, I make lists. Then I clean my apartment, then I organize my desk, then I organize my to do list, then I make a snack, then I then I then I… etc. Vicious cycle. I sent this to my sister, and she laughed, because she had just cleaned her apartment and organized her roommate’s desk, then made a list, before starting on her essay.

Do you have any other ways of procrastinating? I’d love to know!

    We have a nifty phrase for “productive” procrastination. We call it polishing cats : )
