    • I think we might have :D

      To circle back to the procrastination topic though, at least for me, whenever I'd force myself to stop procrastinating and do something, it would be absolute torture - I'd drag it out and keep quitting doing it only to force myself to come back to it over and over again and each time it'd be worse and worse and worse, and before I knew it, something that would normally take, say, an hour, has taken all day - and ruined it in the process. I'd still feel guilty for procrastinating, but irritated that doing the task has interrupted the procrastinating at the same time :D

      So I prefer to let the procrastination run its course naturally, and do things with gusto the next day. I feel healthier, happier and a lot more motivated this way.

    • I have found, from time to time, that procrastinating saves me time. If I put off a task for long enough, in some work environments they decide it is no longer needed.

      On the other hand, putting things off does not give me pleasure. Instead, it's a source of anxiety.

    • I'm glad you've worked out a solution for yourself. Unfortunately I have procrastinated for so long it have built up its own neural pathways to form a habit. ☹️

    • I'm ok once I start. It's just the starting that's the problem. I've learnt that it's easier to carry a load of heavy shit for one hour than thinking about carrying it for 10hrs. However applied knowledge is not my strong suit. 😉
