Some days everything just goes right. You get up, the sun is shining, you feel motivated, you get to work, things come together, progress happens. And usually progress feels really good.

Then other days... you run into this guy:

This (in case you didn't notice the underlined name) is Procrastinatron. He's the procrastination robot monster I like to blame for all those times I “just don't wanna.”

Most of the time you can kind of tell he's coming. He loves rainy days. He loves afternoons when you've just eaten a huge lunch. He loves Mondays. He really loves Fridays. If you turn your head quickly enough sometimes you can see him out of the corner of your eye.

But sometimes he sneaks up on you, and those days are the worst. Because maybe you got up and it was sunny and you felt motivated... and then as soon as you tried to be productive, Procrastinatron struck.

He's not very nice.

And sometimes it feels like you're stuck in a cage match with him and all you can see are his big, meany eyes and his angry, grindy teeth.

But today Procrastinatron is going down! Already today the score is Audrinator (that's me): 1, Procrastinatron: 0. And you can beat up on him too! Don't hold back. Show no mercy!

Let's show the procrastination monster that he can't get the best of us!


  1. Ugh - I'm having one of those days too. I was really productive yesterday and I think the Procrastinator is out to show me that he's going to win. Sigh.

    I'm going to have to go dig out my samurai sword and show him who's boss.

  2. Please do. He's been far too smug lately.

  3. I was going to put a long post here, but I just don't feel like it. :-P

  4. lol, Audrey! So what's the score now?

  5. I lost track. But the day ended on a positive, so I think overall I must have won :)

  6. This post is excellent. I thought I saw something out of the corner of my eye, but now I have been bolstered! I'm not even going to glance away. Productivity, here I come!
