I am the world's worst procrastinator. Right now I should be doing payroll and GST remittances, but I think Psychlinks is far more important :dimples: so here I am.

I hate doing paperwork. If I had a real office it would be easier, because I could do it at work. But my office is in my room, and when I'm in my room, I want to be in my nice warm bed reading a book.

Puppy is dreaming at my feet. He's jumping and snorting...must be a good dream :)

I can understand procrasting, I do it all the time too especially at work and especially if it is stuff that I don't really have an interest in doing. And yes Psychlinks sometimes is more important and much more fun to be on than what I need to be doing.

Sometimes if I really have things to get done then I set a timelimit for myself and do what I have to do and then allow myself a specific amount of time to check on the forum and see what's going on. Other times I have to admit that it doesn't really work and I still don't get what I need done and just end up procrasting for the day.

Yeah time limits don't work with me...if I had a "normal" job with bosses expecting stuff, they might. But - if I'm late submitting my GST, I just pay a fine. I don't get written up or fired. Makes it hard. I actually just bought a laptop and if it ever arrives I'm moving my desk and computer from my bedroom to work so I can actually do my work at work, and hopefully stay caught up and not get behind like this. I also procrastinate doing GST becaue it means doing bank recs which I HATE doing!! So right now I'm doing payroll which is very important and was actually due yesterday. Then I'm going to do the staff schedule, and then maybe some data entry to get me closer to doing GST. So - I will get *some* stuff done today, but probably not as much as I should. I keep telling myself it'll be easier to do when I have an office at work. I sure hope so...these accounting marathons a couple times a year suck!!

Well it does not sound like you are procrastinating on everything and you are getting some stuff done so that is good. So you are procrastinating on the GST submissions well that is only one part of what you are working on and many of us put off the more dedious tasks until the end.

I hope that you can get the other stuff done and then be fresh to start your GST stuff tomorrow :)

Added: I think getting your laptop and being able to do the work at work is probably going to help as well...let's hope it arrives soon :crossfingers:

I LOVE lists...so as long as I make a list and get the pleasure of crossing things off, then I tend to get alot more done. It also helps me see what I have to do at a quick glance and better prioritize my stuff. For example, I've already crossed off:

- play with the dogs
- make hot chocolate
- do laundry
- take a nap
- make popcorn
- check for on-line sales
- read the paper

Wow - I guess I've actually done alot today. Maybe it IS time for a break :funny::funny:

Oh gosh no - that's a "must do". It's *very* high on the priority list. In fact, I'm almost due for another one after all this hard work. :lol:

Oh no, Daniel. Bad, bad idea! But, I can't make that judgment without going to check it out first, so I'll do that. THEN I'll do my staff schedule. Really, I will! For the record, payroll is submitted! My staff can eat this month!

Yup. Now I need to eat popcorn, drink hot chocolate, and look through the latest Avon catalogue. After that I'll pay some bills.

Absolutely. So glad someone gets it! I did find a pair of slippers I like in the Avon catalogue. Yahoo! And I just found some dried up beef lung on my desk. :yuck:
