    I really think sometimes I manage better

    when I do procrastinate. Not that I enjoy stress, but somehow I work better and faster than I would without the last minute stress motivation. Waiting until I don't have any extra time to get something done also eliminates my tendency to second guess myself, and I do a better...

    Time Optimist

    Someone described me as a time optimist. I don't just put things off till the last minute - when the last minute arrives I try to fit in a few other things too - and inevitably end up late! Anyway sounds more positive than "procrastinator" and has an inbuilt excuse!

    SADNESS! It's 12:05 am

    where I'm at, and I have to analyze three poems, research another poet, and do my social studies homework, and look for my French dictionary. Why do I do this to myself? And on top of all that, I have a cold. I hate colds the most, because it's so miserable! Bleh. So, now I go...

    And it's ruining my life.

    I would rather run from problems and challenges so I don't have to face them. I have failed a lot, which causes and perpetuates this. I can't bring myself to try.

    I've been using a book called "The Now Habit"

    which has in it a systematic programme for beating procrastination, and when I first mentioned it I said I'd keep interested people posted on how it's going. Well, I've worked through a number of stages of the programme now, and it's continuing to impress me. One of the latest...

    I'm finding it so difficult to get everything

    done. I put off one thing and it seems to cause a chain reaction. There's so much I want to do but when I look at all the things I sigh and say, "I'll start tomorrow." Unfortunately, tomorrow never comes.

    I don't even know how,

    but somehow, someway, I usually came from doing my homework, to looking looking up how to understand your pet better, and how to fix your microwave. I don't even have a pet. Something's wrong with me.

    I'm Only Writing This Because I'm Putting Off Doing Important Stuff

    What causes procrastination? I think it is fear.  Fear that I won't be able to complete the task - or do it well enough.  Fear that it may involve me getting my hands dirty or have repercussions. Fear that it may attract criticism.  Fear that it may turn...

    I'm pretty sure it means to put off something

    by doing something else so I guess I'm just an advanced procrastinator since all I do is lay in bed when I don't want to do something like home work.

    I always say I will do something

    but I either feel lazy or I just get distracted with other things. Sometimes I want to do something but it takes effort and you need to know where to start.

    It's a terrible habit I know.

    It's gotten me in trouble a few times. I'm always happier when I don't wait to get something done, but it kinda gives me this weird thrill when I'm under pressure.

    Alright, it's 12 AM and I have a research paper

    rough draft (complete with note cards and highlighted printouts) due tomorrow. I'll be staying up late to get it done, even though I gotta wake up at 6 AM. Procrastinating is terrible and I really ought to break the habit, 'cause it's definitely not worth the pain and stress...

    I always tend to let my phone keep me from

    doing anything. Like, taking a shower. My bed is so comfortable I just keep saying "okay five more minutes. Okay ten. I can do it in an hour. Hold on, I gotta reply to this message" Technology always gets the best of me. >.<
