12 ways to......

......... procrastinate.  I am in another blog challenge and it is to complete the line - 12 ways to......and I decided on "to procrastinate" because I am very good at that and I am surprised that they have only asked for 12 ways :)

1. Go for a coffee to think about what's to be done...
2. Knit another row - I always think better when relaxed....
3. Pick lint......
4. Check e-mail......
5. Make to do list......
6. Call a friend....someone who always says "take time to smell the roses".....
7. Have another coffee to make sure that there is nothing else more important to be done than the task at hand that needs to be done.
8. Make a mental list of all the small jobs that could be done easily, just to see whether they need doing before the "elephant." I know this is number 7 rephrased.
9. Tidy..I always work better when things are tidy...unless, of course that is what's to be done!!!
10. Go on line for suggestions of how to tackle the job or do it better, once you have started.
11. Have another coffee...
12. Stare into the distance for one last long moment hoping for the phone to ring, a text message, an angel, anything to give you an excuse not to begin.....

I'll let you know how it goes.  Please post any delay tactics that you have.  I need to add them to my arsenal!!

Have aproductive day!!!
