I am the Great Procrastinator!
While I’m not proud to admit that procrastination is a huge issue for me, it does feel rather empowering to shout it (at least virtually) and own it. As far back as I can remember, I waited until the absolute last minute to do everything. For a while, it worked. Studying, school projects, chores, etc. I prided myself on “performing my best” when crunched for time. Silly, teenage me.
Time marched on and the issue got worse. Complicated by alcoholism, my success rate with waiting until the last minute started to drop. To be honest, it was a terrible cycle: (1) Put something off, (2) stress about it so I couldn’t sleep or concentrate, (3) drink to relax and forget about it and (4) start over the next day. Good times!
For most of the last year, I really thought sobriety would cure this terrible ailment. I waited, and waited some more. Still waiting…
So, it appears that the magic resolution I’ve been waiting for isn’t coming and I’ll need to JUST STOP PROCRASTINATING.
Pretty sure this will be painful, but absolutely necessary. Any suggestions?
