I never saw it coming.
For the first time ever, Steve gave me a writing assignment as a punishment. Two pages on why I hadn't done a particular chore (for a few days). I guess he thought I must have an amazing excuse that would completely fill those two pages to explain why I hadn't done it.
But really I only needed two words.
I have a long history with procrastination. I even procrastinated while in the womb, not getting around to going through the whole birth process until nearly 3 weeks after I was due to arrive. My habit of procrastination is one of things that led me to propose we give DD a whirl. While DD has helped to some extent, I still have a long way to go.
When Steve got his lunch break, he called to check in on my progress on my assignment. I told him I had worked on it for a while, but it could really be summed up in just two words. He asked what they were so I told him. Then he said he still wanted two pages. Grrr
As you may recall, I'm a college student right now so I have some experience in stretching a paper to fit an imposed limit. But stretching two words to two pages took some real work. I ended up writing a general paper about my habit of procrastination and how we might go about fixing it.
So in honor of my procrastination paper, I'm throwing the topic out to you guys.
Who else has trouble with procrastination?
How have you dealt with it?
How has your HoH dealt with it?
