No Oct 7

I don’t procrastinate at work but I can’t say the same about some of my domestic chores (ironing, for instance). If I happen to have several projects with similar deadlines I always start with the one I find most difficult, just to get it out of the way…

It depends on what has to be done Oct 7

As I said earlier in the poll, it depends on the task that has to be done. Almost everybody has this tendency to procrastinate.

Yes Oct 7

It's a big problem for me. I don't manage my time well and end up working late.

Procrastination is my middle name Oct 7

Mind you, since procrastination goes hand in hand with displacement activity, it means that if there's a project I'm putting off, for instance, the ironing may well get done.

I dont tend to do that Oct 7

I don't tend to do that , we cannot expect what will happen in the last minute. We cannot guarantee last minute problems ( electricity, internet, hang ups...etc)

Yes, for Mount Laundry Oct 7

I have been procrastinating folding my laundry for weeks now. A friend commented yesterday that it looked like my wardrobe vomited all over my bedroom. Pretty accurate description. But for translation, I'm not a procrastinator. Not too much at least.

yes Oct 8

I like to always get ahead with translations, at least to the point where they just need one more read-through before delivery.
It's the other stuff like billing and tax declarations and so on that I tend to drag my feet on. Let's not even look at the dust, ok?

Not really, Oct 9

I usually take breaks on purpose, answering Quick Polls, for example, and sometimes I get distractions, but I wouldn't call either one procrastination.
