yes, cleaning my desk, taxes... I hate doing those things and I procrastinate.  Now preparing for a client, getting things done for a buyer or seller ... those I do as soon as possible.

Captain Wayne - I do tend to procrastinate on things I need to do, but am typically pretty good about getting things done for my clients. Funny how that works.

Every time I have procrastinated about something I have to do, it's come back to bite me. It keeps getting harder to do. Now I have the mantra, "if I don't do it, no one will." Unless I hire an assistant, of course.

Being the eternal optimist I entertain the happy thought that if I wait maybe someone else will do it!

It depends on the particular item.  Some things are high priority since the implications of procrastinating may be significant.

Depends on the item, but sometimes yes.  Certain things (like cleaning the desk or some pointless chores) definitely.  But those are low priority items.

Captain Wayne - Rowlett Real Estate School isn't that the human nature?

It's the path of least resistance everyone wants! 

And that's the difference between successful and unsuccessful people. Both of them don't like to do it. Successful people do it anyways!
