    I planned to write about procrastinating

    tonight. But, I think I will just do it tomorrow. I don't want to rush into anything.

    This is the reason I'm stressing right now.

    I always put things off like ok I'll just do it later. Now it has caught up with me, my children and I are suffering because of my stupid choices

    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.

    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.

    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...

    SADNESS! It's 12:05 am

    When sent back to redo a cleaning assignment

    given to me by my mother she would always remind me to use some elbow grease. To me, then and as habit now, elbow grease equates to scrubbing the crap out something with such an intensity to cause minor injury to self. The deeply set belief that a job well done requires...

    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 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.

    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.

    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'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 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. >.<
