I usually just do things. I don’t mull them over too much, I just do them.
But sometimes a task is more time consuming or …I know it will take a lot of brain power and focus. So sometimes then.. I’ll procrastinate.
Generally if I had just DONE the task, it would take less time then the countless things I did to AVOID doing the task. Like…
- Do my bathrooms need cleaned?
- Dishwasher emptied
- How about resort my red fabrics, because that seems to NEED to be done
- Pull weeds… and the list goes on and on and on
It was a weird feeling the other day to procrastinate. As I stitched this striped binding… which I was doing to avoid a time consuming task, I thought about how…. if I had just started the project… I would be done by now.
Do you do this… avoid hard tasks by doing loads of meaningless things instead?

Yes, I procrastinate too. If I do something productive during that period such as weed pulling, folding clothes etc I just say I moved onto other tasks. If I just sit down & watch a tv show or take a nap I say I’m giving my mind & body a rest. So is it procrastination or waiting to do the job when you are fresh & won’t have to redo it? Sorry, I’m missing the free class time but mind, body & soul are being refreshed in a sunny warm spot in VA during October with a sis n law who lives far from us.
Jan that’s a great way to think about it. Very positive. Enjoy time with your SIL ❤️
It is funny. I am the same as you. I will avoid project. Then when I finally do complete it; I am like, Why didn’t I just do it in the first place.
This seems to happen most once I have completed a quilt top. I machine quilt my quilts but, how should I do it; what should I use for backing.
Thanks for your note…going to check out some soup recipe
So glad I’m not alone Tracine!
