It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth.
You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything.
But in real life, you can’t avoid doing things. We have to earn a living, do our taxes, have difficult conversations sometimes. Human life requires confronting uncertainty and risk, so pressure mounts. Procrastination gives a person a temporary hit of relief from this pressure of “having to do” things, which is a self-rewarding behavior. So it continues and becomes the normal way to respond to these pressures.
Particularly prone to serious procrastination problems are children who grew up with unusually high expectations placed on them. Their older siblings may have been high achievers, leaving big shoes to fill, or their parents may have had neurotic and inhuman expectations of their own, or else they exhibited exceptional talents early on, and thereafter “average” performances were met with concern and suspicion from parents and teachers."

Cyclist In NYC Berated By Cop For Wearing ‘Distracting’ Skirt
Jasmijn Rijcken, a bike enthusiast visiting from Amsterdam, was approached by an irate NYC cop not for breaking a law, but because he felt that the way she was dressed was dangerous. Yes. Literally. Noah Kazis writes:
Rijcken was in town for the New Amsterdam Bike Show on April 30. After she had dismounted on Broadway in SoHo, an NYPD officer stopped, berated, and threatened to ticket Rijcken for wearing a skirt while cycling, which, it must be noted, is entirely legal and common. Rijcken says the officer told her that her skirt was dangerous because she would distract drivers and potentially cause them to crash.
Not only that, but it sounds like the cop quite possibly would have ticketed Rijcken if he hadn’t found out that she was foreign (because, what…American women should know better?):
According to Rijcken, the cop’s words were not merely an empty threat. He took her ID and only began to back down when he saw that she was Dutch. She hurriedly explained that in Amsterdam, it’s common for women to bike in skirts. In the end, the officer told her she should change into pants and let her go.
Yeah…it’s fucking common for women in America, too. Oh, and legal. Meaning that no law enforcement officer should be talking to you about it, let alone telling you to go change. Your clothes are never illegal.
What the fuck. NYC cops are some of the worst people to bicyclists and try to ticket them for anything and everything, but still. I wear a skirt every single day. I bike about twenty miles every day. In Chicago, it was my job to ride my bike all day, and I did so in skirts. I never “distracted a motorist” by my skirt and if I had, well, it’s still their damn fucking fault.
I don’t know who’s having more fun - me or Pierre? he loved it!!! :) Pjer je otkrio da je veliki talenat u “body surf-u”. Super smo se zabavljali ;-) Novak Djokovic
Um, how did the ref miss that one? Equatorial Guinea evened up the score shortly after, too — although the Matildas wound up beating them 3-2.
