Posted:do you think that drawing up plans or to do lists is the ultimate form of procrastination?
cause its not like your actually doing the thing, your just thinking about doing it (the ultimate form of prcrastination, perhaps?)
or is it more that making the plan is the first step in actually getting the thing done. like - you have a plan and you know what you have to do, so you can now go away and do it.

what do ye think? ye'r opinions?

Posted:wow.. flid that's the thread i've always needed!! biggrin

and zarkia... i find unless i write down what i have to do i forget that i have to do it and find something else to keep me busy. i'm very easily distracted. in fact a lot of the time i don't even do the stuff i write down straght away but it usually gets done eventually. am i supposed to be writing an essay at the moment? oh yes... rolleyes

josh had a thread all about this somewhere, im trying to find it for you.

i know what you mean though.

Lists are a good idea, especially in work, i do it all the time to try to keep myself organised.

I find the trick to be putting down on the list WHEN your going to do it and then trying to stick to that.

I'm the worst procrastinator in the world.... I cant even see my bedroom floor anymore...

heh heh - yea, but then that really ties you into the things you have to do.
i make lists of stuff to do, then ignore them till the absolute last minute. so i guess that really defeats the purpose.
