Why Today?

Daily Prompt: Now? Later?
We all procrastinate. Website, magazine, knitting project, TV show, something else — what’s your favorite procrastination destination?


I used to leave so many things, thinking tomorrow I will make a start. Naturally there would be a buildup of things to be done. Then I would work like a frenzied creature. The end result: I would make myself sick.

I tried a white board tapped to the wall near my dressing table. On it, I would write the immediate tasks to be done. Once the list was made, I would forget to look it up as to what needed to be done.

Another list of work was held by a magnet on the fridge door. In the beginning I would look at it as a new day would start. Slowly and gradually more work would pile up. Priorities were mentioned on a new list I made. I put it near the microwave. I figured probably this new list would grab my attention more. No such luck!

My excuses are not yet, later in the day, still time, and another day.

Why Today?
