NaBloPoMo: Three

Prompt 3: Do you have a tendency to procrastinate, or do you like checking things off your to-do list?

You already know that I procrastinate, but I also like keeping a to-do list and crossing things off. 

A sample to-do list from my first semester of grad school.
I find a to-do list most handy at work, where I have a lot of things going on. I keep a running to-do list of things I need to complete for storytimes and upcoming programs. I keep a to-do list in my Outlook account of weekly and monthly tasks that I have to accomplish (which also helps to remind me of some of the administrative stuff, like time sheets and monthly e-mails to send out). At home, we have a to-do list of weekly chores to help us stay on track with the major stuff. I also like to make personal lists of things to accomplish, whether large or small. Towards the end of a semester, I love making a to-do list to see what stands in my way before a break. 

So while I may put things off to the last minute, I do stay organized and prioritize using lists. It works for me.


  1. I agree, procrastination and to-do lists can go hand in hand!


    1. Your agreement makes me feel less crazy about my system. :)
