Do It Now (Not Later)

One of my biggest character flaws…been working at it for quite some time now, and most times, it’s better than it used to be. How do I know? Well, it’s 9pm and I just started the dishwasher, which means I didn’t leave the dishes in the sink till tomorrow.

Break the procrastination habit! Some inspiration from Guideposts.

Do It Now (Not Later).



  1. I don’t see leaving the dishes undone til morning as a character flaw. Although, I’m pretty sure our Grandmother would. I see it as a problem at times but not flaw. I’m working on the procrastination issue too.

    1. The article calls it a bad habit, not a character flaw! Not a big problem if I leave the dishes overnight, but it used to mean that was all the dishes from all day long and possibly from the previous night, too! So I’ll go with that – I’m trying to change a bad habit. And most times, it works. Still need work on the ‘hanging up my clothes’ habit, too!

      Our grandmother would get ‘that look’ about many things in the way I run my life… oh well. 8)

  2. I think I give myself that look. I do really well and then all of a sudden I’m falling behind again. Sheesh!

  3. If it weren’t for putting stuff off until tomorrow, I’d never get any exercise at all!

    1. Swampie, I happen to read the descriptions you post of your days. The stuff you put off is in response to exhaustion or the necessary realignment of your daily priorities. You get more done in a day than I do in a year! You have to put stuff off – there just ain’t enough hours in the day to accomplish the lists you make for yourself!

  4. Procrastination. It’s the one thing I can never put off until tomorrow.
