There’s always something you have to put off doing. Here are 5 ways I tend to procrastinate:

1. Procrasticleaning – When I need to put something off, I tend to start doing house work. I’ll do laundry, organize a drawer, get the dishes going. This is a great way to put off work, unless of course the work you’re trying to put off is cleaning.

2. Planning – If I have to do something I don’t want to, I sometimes plan it out in mind numbing detail. Yes, planning is a good thing. But if you spend 1 hr using excel to create a chart to help you plan out what should be a 20 minute activity…well…yeah.

3. Media – Yes, watching tv shows is still a great way to pass the time that should be spent elsewhere. And don’t even get me started on Facebook.

4. Shopping – There must be something I need to pick up at Target, right? Then I’ll go home and work.
