I’m an ostrich.
Not a literal one, obviously. That’s a whole other set of diagnoses that we’d have to start dealing with.
No, I’m an ostrich in the sense that when I’m busy procrastinating, and people start to pressure me about things I know I should have already taken care of, I balk and shove my head in the sand. It’s like the opposite of a kick in the kiester. (btw, kiester is your word of the day – I expect you all to use kiester at least once over the course of your day).
I don’t know why this is. But it’s never IMPORTANT things that I procrastinate on. Like if I’m on deadline, I try to send things in EARLY as opposed to LATE. But when it comes to things like dropping off the rent check, doing those dishes that I left here three days ago, mailing a check with the post-it reminder…I procrastinate. And then eventually something snaps in my brain, and I take care of everything outstanding all at once.
Does anyone else do this? Or am I the only one with motivation issues, and ostrich-sympathies?
