Procrastination is a type of behaviour which is characterised by deferment of actions or tasks to a later time. Psychologists often cite procrastination as a mechanism for coping with the anxiety associated with starting or completing any task or decision.
I have an all day crop on Sunday. I really should be getting my stuff together for it, but here I am, writing in this blog, checking myspace, email, cricut message board and whatever else I can do so that I don't get ready for the crop. Why do I find it impossible to get ready for things that I enjoy????? Anyone who knows me is aware of my aversion to packing. I will literally wait until 3am to pack before a 6am flight. Do I want to go away? Yes. Do I enjoying being away? Yes. So why do I procrastinate??? I know what I want to work on, so the ideas are there, it's just the physicality of putting the stuff in a bag. Weird, huh?
