After All, Tomorrow Is Another Day

https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/02/07/after-all-tomorrow-is-another-day/“Never put off
till tomorrow
what you can
do day after
tomorrow
just as well.”
-Mark Twainhttps://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/02/07/after-all-tomorrow-is-another-day/I’m a pro at procrastination, no amateur stuff for me. I wish I could stop procrastinating, but I keep postponing it. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/02/07/after-all-tomorrow-is-another-day/I do it when blogging, postponing writing posts – I tell myself it’s a lack of energy, lack of time, lack of ideas – I wish those were truths, but like most cases of procrastination, my real issue, fear. If I delay doing something, it can’t fail.https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/02/07/after-all-tomorrow-is-another-day/

My procrastination is getting worse, becoming a chronic condition. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/02/07/after-all-tomorrow-is-another-day/Is it the amount of choices? Time inconsistency? Self-censorship? Constant interruptions? Laziness? Lack of focus? https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/02/07/after-all-tomorrow-is-another-day/We all put off doing things, but when does it move to acting against your best interests, your better judgement, when does procrastination take over your common sense?https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/02/07/after-all-tomorrow-is-another-day/

What if I’m not even a pro procrastinator, but just an amateur stresstinator?Β  https://yadadarcyyada.com/2014/04/05/overwhelmed/https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/02/07/after-all-tomorrow-is-another-day/Either way, I need to get out of my head, out of my own way, so I ignored the Scarlett O’Hara voice in my head, telling me to think about it tomorrow (after all, tomorrow is another day)… https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/02/07/after-all-tomorrow-is-another-day/Then fiddle-dee-dee, I called/emailed/talked to who I needed (note I did not use the word “wanted”) to contact, and even wrote this post; giggling (mostly in my head), thinking of Carol Burnett’s “Went With The Wind”.https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/02/07/after-all-tomorrow-is-another-day/

The cure for procrastination? I want to say chocolate (I know who my date is for Valentine’s Day)… https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/02/07/after-all-tomorrow-is-another-day/Wishful thinking aside, it’s a mystery to me – I’ll push through the Crapathy https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/05/25/crapathy/ – try for more: courage, conviction, and compassion https://yadadarcyyada.com/2015/02/20/compassion-never-goes-out-of-style/ https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/02/07/after-all-tomorrow-is-another-day/keeping in mind, some things are better when we wait for them.https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/02/07/after-all-tomorrow-is-another-day/

  1. You could have had me in mind when you write this post! I’m a master at procrastinating. I never thought it might be down to fear but what you said about not failing if you delay doing something makes sense. Maybe you’ve cured me! I’m going to show this book I’m not writing that I’m not afraid πŸ™‚

    1. No thanks to WordPress for that, dear friend, apparently they think we should have ESP about posts!!! πŸ˜‰

      1. We’ve had oddly warm temps the past 2 days… and of course snow forecasted for tomorrow. Go figure.
        I’m happy to know you chose to stick around, Donna. I know very well that it can be difficult, so you have to do what is right for you first of all. But know that you bring smiles and validation to everyone your words touch. Toasty hugs right back. πŸ™‚

  2. Funny….I read something recently along these lines. I was a joke in Marathi, an Indian language but roughly translates to “Don’t procrastinate to tomorrow all the time. Procrastinate to the day after as well, so the load on tomorrow is reduced!” πŸ˜€

  3. The only things that are better when we wait for them are the things we don’t particularly want like birthdays at my age. You couldn’t possibly say chocolate is better for the waiting….it’s just not true. chocolate is always the same steadfast friend you left 5 minutes ago. Actually you and I have the same date for Valentine’s Day. I didn’t procrastinate that decision. Courage, conviction, compassion eh, Well, I’ll fight anyone who touches my chocolate, Hmmm, perhaps we’ll come back to convictions another time but compassion, surely that can’t be doubted. I’ve expressed my love for chocolate and I would rush to the aid of any injured bar I saw, albeit in another’s hands. That’s truly compassion is it not.
    You are still the same wonderful and supremely funny lady as ever.

      1. Exactly, especially when WordPress is pulling tricks, you would not believe what WordPress did this time, lots of comments thrown into Spam and about 25 just poof, disappeared then reappeared weeks later. Sigh, I guess I should be used to it by now, but somehow I always managed to be shocked. lol πŸ˜‰

      2. I read in a book about calling lists, don’t know about you, but I make lists, anyway about calling them “Bug” lists because whethere we know it or not, things bug us when we haven’t done them, so we should just do them. Easier said than done, but…and I’m really so sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner, Erika, you’ve been so kind and patient and loyal, you would not believe what WordPress did this time, lots of comments thrown into Spam and about 25 just poof, disappeared then reappeared weeks later.

        Oh, I am sorry, you had such problems with the comments. I know, sometimes it feels like WP is playing tricks with us. I hope all is well again. And now worries, I appreciate your reply whenever it comes, Donna 😊

      2. There are so many complaints. It’s been months and months since I’ve received notifications of bloggers’ posts and I know others have said they have the same issues and your issues sound frustrating as well. I hope they fix it all soon, but it just seems to be getting worse instead of better. πŸ™‚

Thank you, Ian, I was both procrastinating and scratching my head before I replied…lol πŸ˜‰ WordPress dumped about 50 comments into my spam folder including one from a linky party I joined and got the most views on, in 2016, yes, you heard that right, 2016, wait, can we go back to 2016, just before.

  4. LOL I would like to do everything BEFORE I even know what it is that I have to do, because I hate having things to do. Seriously, I like a reallllly clean slate. Open days, so I can do whatever I feel like doing ALL the time. I don’t put things off…ever. Pay every bill the day I get it, so no stuff piling up. We are who we are. Son was opposite, daughter is even worse than I am. My husband and I were the same, so that was perfect. πŸ™‚

  5. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    Something for the procrastinator in all of us, those of us, for example who overuse the words ‘should do’ rather than ‘must do’. Donna Parker guides us through this painful or painless condition, however you view the outcome of procrastination, with her usual wit and entertaining take on the issue. #recommended
