Written for the NaBloPoMo writing prompt :
"Do you have a tendency to procrastinate, or do you like checking things off your to-do list?"
I tend to run down the middle of the road of life winging it as I go along. While I am not a great planner and tend to fly by the seat of my pants, I always manage to get done what needs doing when it needs to be done. When under pressure I focus and do one thing at at time. Honestly, I do make lists. I make grocery lists. I list what bill collectors are going to be blessed with my money and which ones will have to wait till another day. I list the prompts available to write and then write them one at a time. I never plan posts, ever. When I am participating in a writing challenge, whether it lasts a week or a month, I write my posts the day they are due. It is the way I roll. I envy those who write all their posts and schedule them for the day they need to publish.
For tasks that I would rather not do, like washing dishes and mopping floors, I procrastinate. I put it off until I absolutely have to do it. While normal people do their dishes after they eat, I am ass backwards and do the dishes before I cook another meal. Then we eat, and the dishes wait until I am ready to cook again. Very rarely I will quickly wash the dishes immediately.
If I make lists at all it is in the form of reminders. For a person who flies with their head up their ass most of the time as I do, I need my notes to self otherwise I would be clueless. Being spontaneous is part of my charm and also contributes to my habitual gift of fits of giggles. My spontaneity is one of my finest attributes. In the end, it doesn’t really matter if you are a planner or a procrastinator. What matters is that you get the job done when it is supposed to be done and do it to the very best of your ability.
