In The Mind of A Procrastinator Journal: Post #3

I have a false sense of accomplishment every week when I am doing my homework assignments for school.  I have been getting the work done, but I feel that it has been substandard as I continue to put off what I could do today.  I always have enough time to do the assignment for class, but I wait until I have a short amount of time to accomplish the task at hand.  I didn’t know why I continued to do this until I read this fascinating article that I think would be most helpful to those, like myself, who tend to procrastinate regardless of the situation.  I realized that even when I procrastinate on an assignment, I still receive a good grade, and I am therefore being rewarded for my lack of doing the assignment with the relaxation of lots of time.

I don’t want to do too much writing for this post, but I want you as the reader to read this article from CalPoly, Procrastination-Study Skills.  I believe this will be most helpful to those that need to recover from the psychological disease of procrastination.

Please let me know what you think.  I hope that this could be an open discussion.

My name is Yvette Porter Moore, and I am a Recovering Procrastinator.

Time really does go fast when you are a procrastinator.  I had time for everything, and had no time for anything!  My question to myself is, “Did I not really have enough time to get everything done, or did I not prioritize what needed to be done?

My publisher at FreedomInk sent me a message a few weeks ago that I keep on my white board in my room.  She stated that she asks herself these two questions:

1. Does This really need to be done?

2.  Can I delegate this?

If all questions answer with a no, then it gets written on a priority list.  We must learn to delegate tasks to others so that we can free up our time to get to the top priority of  things on our ‘To Do Lists’.

I want this not to be my sounding board, but I am hoping to get you to interact with me and tell me what you do to take advantage of the time you have.
