Project Procrastination

I’m guilty! I admit it.

I try not to procrastinate as a general rule but I do have a couple of projects that I have been procrastinating on doing. The funny thing is, it isn’t that I don’t want the projects done or that I even think they will be hard…’s just that I simply don’t want to do them. I know I will feel better once they are done. I’ll feel like a weight has lifted off my shoulders but those projects still sit there. They call to me, erode my enjoyment when I am relaxing and weigh on my mind.

I’ve even gone so far as to write out a task list of the projects, breaking them into smaller actionable steps but no, they sit, awaiting my impetuous to be completed. It’s one of those things I can’t figure out about myself. The why to these small procrastinations. I almost feel like they are a form of rebellion. Rebellion from, “adulting” as my kids say, rebellion from always doing what is expected of me, or perhaps just rebellion at having so many things to do to begin with. Regardless, there they sit, my Achilles heel in a normally productive life.

I know people often procrastinate major projects but I can’t be the only one who has these type of procrastinations on small, easily done projects. Do you procrastinate? What is something you are procrastinating and why?
