    - I bought a mountain bike in the summer of 2011. I have yet to ride it.
    - I punched a hole in a wall, to install a recessed shelf. Partly installed it - didn't get back to it. That was 5 years ago.
    - started cleaning out the basement....3 years ago...

    Anyone else ? :)

    Oh yea, that's me, big time. I have a '49 Harley that I want to restore someday. I bought it...I think it was '96. Read some books, ordered an exhaust system...that's it....someday.

    You bought a mountain bike 4 years ago intending to ride it and never have? That's not procrastination. More like an impulsive purchase. Sounds like a disconnect between who you are and who you think you are.

    Or who he would like to be.

    Starting something and not finishing isn't necessarily procrastination. Sounds like adult ADHD.

    Procrastination is a lot like masturbation. It seems like a good thing to do at the time, but in the end you're only screwing yourself.
    You're welcome.
