I used to jokingly call myself "The Queen of Procrastination." I would put things off until the last minute - school work and such - yet I would always do well. My mother would say, "Now, imagine how much better you would have done if you started (project name here) when it was assigned. Or even a week ago!"
I would smile and wave it off. Why fix what isn't broken? Well, fast forward 15 years and I am still the Queen, and I hate it. I have no reason to put things off, and logically, I know that. But it never fails - I will make a list and something will be pushed 'until later' four or five or a hundred times - for absolutely no reason other than I jut don't want to do it. Is that lazy? Probably. But I don't consider myself to be a lazy person. In fact, I am pretty productive... when I want to be. ::Smirk::
I just find that there are little things that aren't all that important in the long run. I have the 'don't sweat the small stuff - and it's all small stuff' mentality.
Any good ideas out there on how to give myself a good swift kick in the ass? Thanks! I would really appreciate that!
