Todd, thanks for your article on procrastination. If I'm understanding this correctly, it's what I do. I didn't realize it was anything unusual until a procrastinating colleague who sat next to me at work years ago asked me how I managed to be so productive and not miss deadlines (we were both writers). I just said I procrastinate in reverse. I get things done that I have to do and then reward myself by doing something I enjoy. I think this is a natural way for me to approach things because I am very sensitive to feeling burdened by thoughts of what I have to do. It's easier on me to do what I need to do rather than stress out about it. Recently I've started keeping track of tasks on an online list (part of Gmail), and I enjoy checking things off. I'm not naturally a list maker or naturally organized, but I am naturally conscientious. Somehow, I always manage to get everything done that I need to do, though I'm always trying to be more expedient and less chaotic in my approach. So the article was reinforcing, and it was interesting to see that my "reverse procrastination" technique has an official name and scientific validity. Glad it's working for you!
