Why do we do it?


Um, because there's stuff I don't want to do?

Substance of this topic is, what are your procrastinating habbits? How do you fight them? Do you succeed in doing it?


Wait until the very last possible second util I absolutely have to do it, then think about it. Seriously, isn't this how it works?

There's this book that John Perry wrote last year about structured procrastination. I can honestly say that I've been meaning to read it, but I haven't got around to it yet. But I hear it's good. Mostly from my father, who's a colleague of Perry's. He hasn't read it either...

Wonder if OP would have liked it better if nobody posted, oh the irony.

I usually procrastinate only when I don't have a clue how to start something. If I at least have an idea about it, I like to dive right in.

I do kind of the opposite.

If I know how to do something, it bores me. I will learn something new in order to delay doing something I know I can do.

For example: I should be working on my android app, or at the very least finishing development of my EDIFACT -> X12 converter

To procrastinate: I am learning octave and shogun instead, while watching Stanford lectures on machine learning, and taking a break from that by reading Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning.


Octave is badass, btw.

Yeah, I procrastinate by reading Dickens and translating ancient Sumerian and Latin texts. And I take a break from that by bullshitting people on the internet to sound smart.
