First, I don’t lie to myself… anymore. If I do, it’s probably related to my level of productivity.
For example, I write “to-do” lists all the time. I love crossing tasks off with my red ink pen, because I feel empowered and shit.
More than 80% of the time if it is on a list, I was avoiding the task by writing it on the list.
Procrastination skills: Level 10
I don’t write list because I’m actually trying to do stuff. I mean sometimes I am but usually it goes like this:
*Writes to-do list*
“Damn, I got mad stuff to-do! How?”
There’s really no valid excuse for doing this.
Maybe I just want to seem busy to others? or maybe I want to feel less complacent?
