Why can't I just get on with things??

I don't know about you but I'm afraid I find it very difficult to start, never mind finish, alot of projects that I have in my mind. I have big plans about what this next scrap book page or card is going to look like but the actual act of going into the craft room and getting everything together to make it always gets put off until 'later'. At the moment I have loads of deadlines to meet..I need to make demos for my up coming Ideal Word Show where my CD Funky Daze will be seen for the first time, I have two adverts to design and submit to magazines, I have paperwork galore to complete from re applying for my driving licence to this years accounts paperwork but what have I been doing this morning? Looking on the t'internet for the best description of my problem.. I am the Procrastination Queen so I laughed out loud when I read this description on Wikepedia..

Procrastination is a type of behavior which is characterized by deferment of actions or tasks to a later time. Psychologists often cite procrastination as a mechanism for coping with the anxiety associated with starting or completing any task or decision. Psychology researchers also have three criteria they use to categorize procrastination. For a behavior to be classified as procrastination, it must be counterproductive, needless, and delaying.

Oh most of the things I have got upto this morning have definitely been counterproductive, needless and delaying !

I have to try to stop putting things off until later and get myself on top of everything. Right I'm off to get these demonstrations started.. but I think a nice cup of tea might be in order first.. oh dear here I go again!

Speak soon

  1. Oh honey so many of us know exactly what you mean...

    I used to be like that until I gave myself a hard boot up the bum... once I stopped delaying, I couldn't believe how much extra time I actually had to myself...

    Hope you get everything done on time & look forward to seeing your new show on C&C.
