But I dont feel like it....
I am NOT a professional at any of this procrastination business, I am just a life long procrastinator who thinks about this topic all of the time. I am still in a total battle with my own terrible habits, but since having my daughter 11 months ago, I think I am starting to overcome this thing called procrastination.
Procrastinators love planning, quite simply because it does not involve doing, and doing is the procrastinator's kryptonite. For me, I always make a list example:
1) Fold Laundry
2) Call and make a doctor appt.
3) Call SERVPRO to get my carpets cleaned (from my always on the move baby who takes her diaper off and crawls around the house naked)
There is always a list I am working on. Its not that we as procrastinators don’t like the concept of doing, its that we look at the bricks on our calendar and think, "Great, this will be fun". So here is what I have been trying to do. Try and visualize yourself completing the list, create methods to help you defeat the list, aim for slow steady progress. You need to show yourself you can do it, not just tell yourself. Things will change when you show yourself you can.
