I have a severe problem with procrastination. I’ve read books and tried various tricks to no avail. I do manage to get things done eventually, but it’s always a crazy sprint to beat a final deadline. I’m sure it’s just a stupid psychological avoidance technique so I don’t have to admit that I’m not as good as I wish I were. If I do things at the last minute, then I can say my work was good enough, but I could have done better if I weren’t so damn lazy. I need to quit doing this. I need some discipline. So I’m inaugurating a new tag to think about procrastination and a solution. I’ll bottle the solution and sell it for $19.99 on the Home Shopping Network. Now I need to get started.
