Alright, I have procrastinated long enough.
A few months ago, I went to a lawyer and had him draw up new wills, one for me and one for my wife. But, even though I have them sitting in a folder in a filing cabinet, we haven’t signed them. So, tomorrow, I’m going to call his office and my wife and I are going to make them official. Why have I waited so long? Shear laziness? How does that sound? Sadly, it’s the truth.
I also need to revamp my current insurance situation. Tomorrow, after meeting with the lawyer, I’m going to visit my insurance agent. I need to increase our term life coverage, rework my automobile insurance coverage, purchase long term disability, renew my renter’s policy, and talk to the agent about an umbrella policy.
I’ve put these changes and upgrades off for far too long. Right now, we have minimal coverage. By the end of the week, we should have substantially more coverage and I’ll feel much better. I should have taken care of this a long time ago. But, there’s no need in beating myself up about it.
Do you procrastinate? If so, why? If not, how do you avoid it? Like a kid putting off a term paper, I find that I procrastinate – mainly when I’m unsure of the next step to take. So, foolishly, I just do nothing, until, in a panic, I have to deal with the consequences of my procrastination. Silly me.
