Last year while I was still working, I started thinking about procrastination. I realized that many times procrastination had saved me from doing tedious work and wasting many hours. The result was a post here last summer. Now that I am retired and actively pursuing an outrageous retirement lifestyle, I no longer have a boss to complicate my life. I no longer have a corporate identity to embrace and glorify. I am free at last to follow my own dreams and vision. Or am I? In my new life, is there any justification for embracing procrastination? Inquiring minds want to know.
I just reviewed the post and revised it. Maybe my thinking hasn’t changed but I did see some tweaks that improved the writing. I still think that there is a case for embracing procrastination even in retirement. Just because you fired your boss and became an independent contractor doesn’t mean that you need to actually do everything you put into your plan.
What do you think about procrastination? Has it ever saved your bacon? Sold you down the river?
