Is it or isn’t it procrastination? Is it one disguised as the other? And which do I want it to be?
So many questions.
I can recognize the symptoms: the obviously avoiding things that need to be done by doing something else. But these are somethings that need to be done with a degree of urgency and another of importance.
Moving into a new apartment creates many tasks that normally would be done in procrastination. The new sheets need to be washed if I don’t want to sleep on a naked mattress. And the laundry needs to be started early enough so that the bedding is dry in time. This classic procrastination is, this time, not a procrastination. It is a look at the clock that gets the load into the machine.
I have a lot of experience in the procrastination game. I have my techniques to avoid the procrastination. I have techniques to avoid the techniques to avoid procrastination. I have techniques … I usually know which role I am playing in the game (being present is a recognized technique for combating procrastination).
Now I am confused. House cleaning, laundry, organising drawers: These are classic procrastination activities which my claims of experience do not allow me to even use as procrastination devices and they fill my to do list.
