Do you tend to procrastinate on tasks/assignments that you don't enjoy, or get them done and out of the way ASAP?

But somehow i get everything done on time.
Funny how that works sometimes.

Wait long enough and it might never need to be done, if the wife forgets too!

Later. It's the American way!

I tend do diligently get some tasks outta the way, so I can procrastinate on others...

I am the biggest procrastinator since I retired. I put everything off, get to it sooner or later. Most of the time later.

Hey, who says procrastinators can't be perfectionists? I leave everything until the last second, then I make everthing perfect, making me sleep late every night...

Depends on what it is
Project at work = get a start while it's fresh
I can't think of anything I procrastinate on but I know I do it

What's wrong with 77% of the nation!?!? Either that, or I'm just some overachieving Asian. No I'm not even that bad... You should see my friend. She actually colors nicely.

For school, I always do stuff the day before. The pressure of getting it done makes me do it 20 times faster than I would have if I had a longer time. I like where I work so there are not many unenjoyable tasks, but when there are, I do them asap.

I'd rather get things done and out of the way and then I don't have to worry about them.
But I procrastinate too.

I, too, wait until it cannot be delayed anymore, hoping it turns out not to be necessary or simply goes away.

I'm with Zod on this one. Rational Procrastination for the win.

I always procrastinate. I'm doing it right now, I should be doing homework...

Wait 'till the last possible nanosecond, because maybe by then somebody else will have done it, or maybe the End of Days will have come. It makes no sense to do early what I don't WANT to do, just in case it turns out I don't really HAVE to.

I get more house chores done trying to avoid doing stuff I don't want to do. Study for that test? Well... The house does need tidied up a bit first though. I'll study right after I vacuum... and throw a load of clothes in.

I usually do it half-way between the assignment given date and the do-by date...don't ask why

So close... And I tend to do them later (in a responsible way). I'm not going to do it at midnight the night before, but I might not do it a week early either.
