Productivity makes me feel good... so why am I such a procrastinator?

I've developed a new morning routine, thanks to a certain yah.oo group:

Wake up
Shower - while I'm in there, do a 10-second brushing of the toilet and wipe off the sinks and countertop
Get dressed, moisturize, brush hair
Make the bed
Toss a load of laundry into the washing machine
Empty the dishwasher
Eat breakfast

and today, I added:
Take a 5-minute walk around the block

I feel so productive. I've even gone through a week's worth of mail, adhering to the rule that I should only touch a piece of paper once. Cheques are immediately written, bills are followed up on, statements are opened, read, and put in the pile to file away. Awesome.

Can you tell I'm feeling kind of virtuous?

And now... I'm off to buy another blue box (recycling bin), because ours is overflowing and it makes our front porch look a bit "white trash"-y.

OMG! How cool. I need to try your plan. I never thought of doing those activities while getting ready in the morning.

And that only touching paper once rule..............BRILLIANT!!!

I'm trying all of those.
Thank you so much for the inspiration.

P.s. Thanks for you comment on my blog too. It made me feel so much better.

Yep that certain yahoo group can really be awesome. Maybe I'll start doing it again.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. I'm having a lap Nov 6th so maybe they will see some cysts through that. Fun times.
