The other option is to schedule to do nothing.
But how do you know when you’re done?
On this topic, does anyone have any real suggestions for how to not procrastinate?
Make an earnest to do list, lock it in a strong box. Mail the key to a random address postage due and with a random return address.
Go to the hardware store and buy a bunch of key blanks. Begin acting on your to-do list once one of those key blanks open the strong box.
If none work, blame Rat.
Well…I don’t do a “To Do” list. I do a “I got these things done” list. I call it my “Victory List.” Doing a Victory List helps me fight depression because it motivates me to get something done. Count everything at first—taking a shower, brushing your hair. If you get to eight things by the end of the day, write “Victory!” at the bottom of your list and give yourself some stars and smiley faces. Depression freezes you. But this is a way to break out of it.
The “to don’t” list works for me!
Brother gave hubby “a round To It” once. It’s been many years and I don’t know where it is now.
Can’t argue with that, Goat!
“Put off until tomorrow what you do not have to do today!” That should be the mantra of Pig!
Never procrastonate today when you can procrastinate tomorrow.
I like Pig’s logic.
Happy as a Pig in mud ;-) … Croc Power !
Procrastinating means pushing things off to some later time. Instead of procrastinating, how about just deciding not to do certain things at all?
“Never do today that which can be put off until tomorrow, for events may occur which will cause to regret your hasty action!”
“Never do tomorrow that which can be put off until the day after tomorrow…”
For some reason, this looks very similar to division by zero…
I’m not saying that I’m a procrastinator but I have one item on my to do list that’s been there for 15 years.
I maintain a list of things done. Much more satisfying.
How do you not procrastinate.
If something now or later, might or might not, seem to cause a problem either now or later, it is easily solved by saying “F it”. Thereby putting the problem whether solved or unsolved, behind you, letting life go on at a normal unhindered pace.
To-Do List: Make To-Do List.
When it comes to crastinating Pig is a pro.
Pig is always agreeable…even if it doesn’t make sense…
I had a very obvious joke for that, but I digress. Sometimes I think Pastis goes too far making Pig into a loser; anyone else think that?
I used to belong to the Procrastinator Society. Funny, we never got around to having meetings.
i used to go to “procrastinators anonymous” meetings but they kept postponing them…
Why do I hear Annie singing in my head…“Tomorrow!Tomorrow!I love yaTomorrow!You’re always a day away”
At my age, I dutifully make a To-Do list daily. Then my advancing senility kicks in, and I either lose it, or if I find it I look at it and wonder who’s been writing me lists of things to do. . . .
Pig should also have, ‘Eat cheese’ and ‘Lie in bed’ on his list. Remember kids, set expectations low.
Procrastination requires too much work. I prefer apathy.
Learn from a Master. Watch Tim Urban’s Ted Talk on the subject. Bonus: it’s hilarious.
Pig has got me thinking…which means I can’t do anything for a while! :D
Nobody has pointed out that if Pig does do anything during the week, he’s failed.
There’s one thing on Pig’s list, and he didn’t do it. First off, he made a list. Doesn’t sound like procrastination to me. Second, he procrastinated. I’m sorry, weren’t you supposed to procrastinate about doing that?
The more I read this strip, the more Pig becomes my hero.
This is the perfect answer to procrastination! I salute you, sir!
Gee, Goat, you sure picked a bad time to get stupid all of a sudden.
Just go away!
Pig’s logic is impeccable. His work ethic, not so much….
I know a good way to stop procrastination. But I will post it tomorrow.
