It's true. I put off everything unpleasant as long as I possibly can. I will make out a list of things to do, and then do all the ones I like first.
It was only a short while ago that I figured out why I do that. It's because I'm also a perfectionist. If I have fears that I can't do it perfectly, then I just don't do it.
At least, not until I'm forced.
Then, biting the bullet, I get down to the nitty-gritty and start. Starting is like 90% of the project, after that everything flows and the next thing I know, I'm done. I'm scratching my head wondering why in the world I made this such a big deal?
I've got issues.
Since I know myself, I've been making it a priority to work ahead at my job. This leaves me leeway so I can put off something for a day or two and still have it done on time!
I may be a perfectionist procrastinator, but I've learned to make allowances for it.
