Avoiding Tip o the day 27

What is the difference between procrastination and avoiding?

To me, avoiding means I can procrastinate on it forever, it may never get done.

Procrastination means I really need to do it, and will fairly soon.

Santa Fe riddle: what does mañana mean?   (see below)

Strategy is the same.  I carry a card labelled “avoiding” so I try to be aware of what I am avoiding.  Then think of the rewards and penalties involved.  Make small steps.  Schedule each step.  Start with the hard one first.

Is avoiding a long term form of procrastination?  or is procrastination a short term form of avoiding?

Answer to riddle:  No, in Santa Fe mañana does not mean tomorrow

it means not today.

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at amazon.com, or smashwords.com (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
