Can Procrastination Work For you?

can procrastination work for you?

I hope my procrastination ends up working for me.

I created a plan, set my goals and deadlines. It looked so good on paper. And then I procrastinated because in my mind I had PLENTY of time to get this project done.

So the question is, can procrastination work for you?

I’ve heard it said that the looming deadline fast approaching can push you to get it done, whereas, all the time in the world makes you linger. I do believe that’s true in a lot of cases. Like if your life depended on it.

But let’s step back for just a moment.

What’s the worst thing that will happen if I don’t finish this quilt by Sunday, February 28th? The world will not stop spinning, that’s for sure. The worst thing that will happen, far as I can see, is personal. I’ll feel like I’ve let myself down.

But there is an upside to that, it’s a perfect lesson learned, make a plan that is reasonable and stick to the plan.

Do things in a fitting and orderly way…

About the quilt

The original was created when I was an Island batik ambassador and I used it in an online quilting class.

That is when I created 2 of my UFOs. Not on purpose, mind you. None of us plan on creating UFOs. But they happen. So, I was teaching the class and making a full-size version along with my students.

Now, if I made one full-size version with my class, it would be done, and this miniature would never have been started.

I have this habit of jumping into lots of projects at the same time. It always seems like a great idea. But it usually ends up with something not gettin’ done.

Can It be finished in Time?

I only have a few days to get this completed to beat the February 28th deadline.

To be honest with you, I’m not sure I’ll get it done by the end of the month, but I do plan to work like crazy on it over the next couple of days.

To finish the quilt, I had 15 more blocks to complete. All of those blocks are done! I’d be ready to piece the top together, but I decided at the last minute, just to make things even more crazy fun, to remake the applique block.

The applique blocks are handwork, so I’ll be spending my evenings appliqueing while watching TV. Or should I say listening?

All I have to do Is…


Once the blocks are done, all I have to do is add a border. Layer, baste, quilt, and bind.

Piece of cake, right?

Will procrastination work for me or against me?

Only time will tell.

Until next time, enjoy your day and the journey
