This Will Be Quick, I Should Be Doing Something Else Now

I should be getting myself ready for work tomorrow right now, but that is what I do.  I know I should be doing one thing but get distracted doing something else.  I seem to be late for most everything, hell I was even born after my mom's due date (started early).  Anyway, I somehow get mandatory things done, but I am scared my luck will run out.   This is a difficult challenge, the only thing I think is harder than NOT procrastinating is eating right & working out.  How do the anal people do it?  Always steadily doing just what they are suppose to be doing, getting things done AHEAD of time.  WOW.  First of all I do not understand the point of being early,  in fact I think it is rude to show up for things early.  I say give people exactly the amount of time they planned on.  And by all means do not rush people.  If you are in such a hurry, go ahead...  I'm in no rush.

People show up a little early to guarantee they'll be there on time. I'd rather be 20 minutes early and take a leisurely stroll or watch the birds or whatever and be on time. When you're not on time, people don't think your respectful. Everyone wants to be respected. If you always come early or on time, then the one time you happen to be late won't be such a big deal. If you're always late then the one time that it was beyond your control won't be excused, because you've been disrespectful so many other times in the past no one will want to hear your excuses for yet another time. <br />

I'm not sure about 'anal' people. Though planning for your life even if its short-term allows for a smoother transition into whatever it is. So lets say you make your dinner the night before, when you get home from work and are too tired to prepare anything, you won't just eat anything to be full, you'll already have something ready. I think being prepared for whatever responsibilities you have chosen for your life, makes your life easier and less hard. Rushing makes life harder.
