Ask Amy: Procrastinator will definitely get to it later – The Washington Post


My manager is flexible and kind, my co-workers are helpful and fun to work with, and the work is challenging and enjoyable. The work gets done and it gets done well and on its due date, but for the days or hours leading up, I find myself unable to avoid distraction. Happy but Unmotivated: I’ll skip over my mini-lecture about “time theft” at your workplace, and get right to what I think is going on. First of all, you could consider this behavior as part of your “process.” My house is never cleaner than when I have a deadline, but during this time, I find I’m mentally noodling on the work I have to do.
