I was fascinated by this comment from Scott Adams, over on the Dilbert blog.
A reader asked if Scott ever had problems with procrastinating. Scott's answer was, "No, I am whatever is the opposite of a procrastinator."
Well, of course, I was intrigued by this. What is the opposite of a procrastinator? Those of us who are procrastinators know what we are. There's a word for us.
What about you non-procrastinators? What do you call yourselves? And if there's not a word for non-procrastinators, does that mean that the majority of us are procrastinators?
Because it seems like if there were a word, Scott Adams would know it! I did a halfhearted search on Thesaurus.com and Dictionary.com, but "procrastinator" is barely even recognized as a word. And when you look up "procrastinate," the antonyms are "hurry," "hasten," and "rush." So would that make a non-procrastinator a "hurryer" or "rusher"? That's just nonsense. "Expediter/expeditor" isn't bad, but that's already being used.
So, jump in here with your thoughts. What's the opposite of a procrastinator? I'm dying to know.
