Procrastination - Just Another Thing I Hate About Being a Libra

  They never list it in the Libra "traits", but I swear it is one.  I am friends with several other Libras and they all complain about the same thing I do - procrastination. Procrastination; putting something off until the last minute, sometimes completing other totally unrelated unnecessary tasks before completing the assigned or desired task.

  I would really love to know where the drive to procrastinate comes from.  I was supposed to finish this post on Thursday, it is now Saturday.  I was busy, but still, I'm sure if I had pressed on I could have completed it.  There are so many things I have to do on a time line that I find myself leaving until the very last minute to complete.  Why must I add such unnecessary stress to my life?  It does not benefit me one bit to do this.  It adds anxiety and stress, but yet, I find myself procrastinating time and time again.

 When I was in high school and University I always found I waited until the very last minute to complete assignments and study.  I would stay up all night working and panicking the night before.  The only consolation being that I usually did extremely well in these scenarios.  It was almost like I was being rewarded for my procrastination.  The interesting thing is I do not procrastinate at work - AT ALL.  I do everything I need to do right away so it's done and I can move on.  Maybe because there is no concrete pressure or time line like there was at school  and in life I don't feel the need to procrastinate?

 Perhaps procrastination works for me because it makes me delve into myself farther than I would if I had plenty of time to do something.  Maybe my brain gets off on the stress and paranoia that accompanies procrastination.  Maybe it is a Libra trait and there is just no escaping it.  I would say I am just plain lazy but I know that is just not true.  I hate that I am a procrastinator.  I wish for the life of me could figure out why I do it, but I fear it will always remain a mystery.

 Do you procrastinate too? Why do we do it!

  1. Procrastination is a hobby of mine for sure :)

  2. I am a highly driven procrastinator if that makes any sense. I get things done, lots of things, but always right on time with plenty of stress involved. I am a Virgo, so I guess it doesn't make a lot of sense :-)

  3. I am a Libra, too and procrastination is my middle name! When I was in high school and college, same thing. I would wait until the last minute to do projects and papers. It worked for me!

  4. I don't think procrastination is a trait that can be attributed to your astrological sign. ;-) It won't be constrained by such things! ;-) Signed, A Professional!

  5. I agree that it must be a Libra trait as i am an awful procrastinator and October born! :p

  6. I am a tried and true procrastinator, unfortunately. I wish there was a way to keep it from creeping into all aspects of my life.

  7. I am the worst procrastinator. I am also a libra :P

  8. I am actually procrastinating right now haha! I was just about to start my massive assignment that is due tomorrow and I strated to think about why everysingle time I get ready to do it I finish thing that I don't need to do or have no relevance! I wish I didn't do it because in about 2 hours I will be falling asleep and only have half of my work done!!!
