    I like to tell myself I "work better under pressure"
    In my defense, I am a terrible person.

    I'm a J and I procrastinate. Big time. J is for Jocrastination, a special subtype of procrastination where you actually get things done a bit sooner than the "real" procrastinators.

    I do it when I feel that I'm pressured to do something. I hate, hate, HATE outside pressure, expectations. Usually school related projects and assignments. There really isn't free will involved in the latter because you're supposed to do them in order to obtain the credit points and to graduate. It never stops.

    But if I give my word and other people are involved, I'm obligated to fulfill the promises, I will do them and get things done on time even if I hate it.

    However, it comes in waves. I can be very self-motivated for quite lenghty periods of time and then it all blows up and goes down the drain for a long time. And then the cycle repeats itself again.

    When you attend to the relevant, the neighbours say you procrastinate.
    What counts in your life does not manifest in the eye of your neighbour.

    You can be worthy in the eyes of another.
    Or you can be worthy in your own eyes.

    Where is that procrastinator valve!

    This is an attitude that with focus will refine but is used as a coping strategy to delay the inevitable in the hopes it'll get done eventually but doing so sooner will lead to its own rewards and doing it later will lead to delays, its like Jet Lag.

    Its also stress release to think of better ways of doing whatever it is your putting off or at least I'm hopeful.

    There is work. This work is uninteresting and I think it will not help me in the future. I also suffer when I do this work. I don't want to suffer. I will not do it or I will do it at the last second.

    ^ Oh yeah that too, finding material or content that is irrelevant to wanting to learn will create dissatisfaction and tend to switch off and focus on other things as its boring and procrastination shall ensue.

    Heh. I'm supposed to have been working 3 minutes ago. I guess I'll start now.....
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.
