The Art Of Procrastination...

A few months back I promised myself that I would have all my Christmas shopping done by this weekend.  Instead I have been looking up quotes for my QOTD (quote of the day) just so I can avoid housework and shopping alike.  Please tell me I am not the only one out there that truly has talent in this art form...


"My evil genius Procrastination has whispered me to tarry 'til a more convenient season." Mary Todd Lincoln (June 1841, Her Life and Letters - 1972)

"Procrastination: A hardening of the oughteries." Anonymous

"I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by." Douglas Adams (1952-2001) English writer, dramatist, and musician

"Never put off till tomorrow, what you can do the day after tomorrow." Mark Twain (pen name of Samuel Langhorne Clemens) (1835 – 1910) American author and humorist

"When there is a hill to climb, don't think that waiting will make it smaller." Anonymous

"Much of the stress that people feel doesn't come from having too much to do. It comes from not finishing what they started." David Allen (1945 - ) Productivity consultant, creator of the Getting Things Done Time Management System

"Even if you're on the right track - you'll get run over if you just sit there." Arthur Godfrey (1903-1983) American radio and television broadcaster and entertainer


  1. I haven't even thought about shopping yet...ugh...

  2. While I don't share your talent of looking up great quotes, I am quite practiced at procrastinating. I almost put off writing this comment.
    I have procrastinating about even thinking of Christmas shopping - and don't even mention writing cards.
    But I love procrastinating, because I work much better under pressure.

  3. Ann - If I can do all my shopping online, I will. I just can't take the crowds!

    Wiley - "I almost put off writing this comment." You crack me up. I wish I could not say that I am a genius at the art form of procrastination. But it would be a lie. I'm ok if I have a list to cross things off of but I always procrastinate sitting down to write one. sigh...

  4. And here I was soooo excited by the fact that for the first time in 30 years I have nearly all the Christmas shopping done. I'm usually still shopping on Christmas Eve.
