So you know you have something to do. You don't do it right away. You procrastinate. Why do that? Why put off doing things only to end up scrambling to get them finished, especially if you have a deadline? I don't have the answer, but I do know that I am a huge procrastinator. HUGE I tell ya!
For me, I always procrastinate when I don't want to do something. Laundry piling up? Procrastinate! House need cleaning? Procrastinate! Child's school project due tomorrow? Procrastinate! (And that last one happened to me this week)
I also procrastinate when it comes to writing. Weird because I LOVE writing! I've tried to figure out why I procrastinate so much, and I think it comes down to getting stuck. I know when I'm on a roll, it's easy to open the word document and start typing. Instant love, y'all. But when I'm not sure what comes next, or if I know something isn't working, I'll goof off on the Internet for a looooong time. Check email. Check facebook. Check Twitter. Check blogs. Repeat. It's a deadly cycle!
So do you know any ways to beat procrastination? What are some tricks you use?
