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, 2017

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, 2017

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, 2017

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, 2017

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, 2017

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.

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, 2017

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