Yay!  It’s Watercooler Wednesday, where the posts are loosely based around a theme, something to spark the imagination and get that community “water-cooler” feeling going.  We all need help getting over hump-day, after all.

Today’s theme comes from Random Topic Generator:


Procrastination Methods


well...maybe later



To give everyone fair warning, if you have a procrastination problem, this post won’t be talking about how to stop procrastinating.  (You’re reading this blog, so that’s one of them right there, LOL).  Instead, we’ll be reveling in our procrastination creativity.  In fact, you may pick up a few pointers to hone that skill of putting things off until later.

After diligent research (via the tried-and-true approaches of:  asking people, trolling the internet, watching my children, and maybe examining my conscience), here are the top ten procrastination methods:

10.  Painting the closet (it really needed it, honest!)  



9.  Cleaning (anything: laundry/pairing socks counts, too)  

8.  Sleeping

7.  Eating  

6.  Computer/videogames (personally, I’ve progressed along with the technology: “Centipede” has morphed into “FreeCell” and “Circle the Cat”)




5.  Surfing youtube.com for giggling babies, flashmob performances, or ferret antics

4.  Facebook/Twitter

3.  Baking/working on the car.  Those chocolate chip cookies won’t bake themselves, and we can’t have dirty tire rims

2.  Re-organizing the junk drawer

…and the number one procrastination method is:

Making “To Do” Lists

(…because, hey, I’m getting organized to take care of this stuff, right?)





What are your favorite tactics for putting off a task you don’t feel like doing but know you have to do?  I know I’ve left out a lot of good ideas.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Until next time,
