I am a procrastinator of the highest order and I am NOT proud of it. I hope that admitting my problem the first step towards a remedy and cure.
- Sometimes I put off things simply because they are things I don’t want to do.
- Sometimes it is because I don’t feel capable of doing them well – yes, I am a perfectionist too.
- And sometimes I don’t do things in a timely manner because I run out of time – I plan too much and aim to high.
Yet I continue to be a list maker and I derive much satisfaction from crossing things off that list.
Yes! What a good feeling to get things done!
But I often do certain things and “hold on to” other things on my list that I am procrastinating finishing. These tasks appear day after day on the daily list. So even though I am completing some items and feeling good about that, this masks the fact that I am still putting off other undesirable jobs. Ugh.
So that’s my admission. Now… I need to get to work on some things that MUST be done!
