19 of things to do while procrastinating

Hi, I’m Holly and I am a procrastinator. Most days, I like to think that my ability to deliver, despite my procrastination, speaks to my ability to work well under pressure. Other days, like today, I want to punch past-me in the face. Like earlier today, when I had to pay $75 to overnight a package that was only worth $25 bucks.

But, I am also really good at justifying my procrastination.

  • “You worked REALLY hard today.”
  • “You need a break from a computer screen.”
  • “You deserve an extra episode of ‘Sons of Anarchy.'”
  • “It’ll only take you 5 minutes.”

I know that whatever the opposite of procrastination would ultimately save me time, stress and money — but LOOK AT ALL THE COOL THINGS YOU CAN DO INSTEAD.
