Thanks to everyone who completed the Procrastination Style Survey. The above pie chart breaks the respondents’ procrastination style by percentages. Some other results from the survey included:
- Many respondents indicated their procrastination style was a combination.
- Age did not seem to have an impact on procrastination style.
- Eleven percent of the respondents were male, 89% female.
- The only category that appeared to have a correlation related to gender was over-giver. None of the male participants indicated they were over-givers.
I have to be honest… I procrastinated on sharing the results of the survey. My excuse is life got busy; but the truth is a combination of the characteristics of an over-giver, perfectionist and crisis-maker got in my way. So how do I deal with it? For me, keeping structure in my life is an effective strategy for staying on track. Structure keeps me focused. No matter how busy I get or what unexpected surprises drop in my path, if I am steadfast about my daily structure, it’s amazing what I can accomplish.
Check back here soon. Over the next few posts, I’ll give some concrete suggestions for dealing with each type of procrastination style. But for now, start with structure!
