    Default SJ's and Procrastination

    Do you procrastinate often?

    Become more sensitive because of it thus the cycle continues?

    What do you do to combat it?

    I wrote more but deleted it as insignificant. Seems to be the word of the day.

    Yeah I'm a big procrastinator.

    I actually started to make deadlines today.

    As we speak.

    And I hate it because I become more restrictive as the deadline gets closer.

    The solution is a work in progress. I just have to force myself to stay focused.

    Although I must say my best work is done when the pressure's on.

    I do not do my best work when I do it very far in advance, neither when I am pushed for time. I do my best work when I feel the pressure, but have enough time to formulate a proper plan. In school, I often gather my research materials very early and then wait until I have about a week to go to finally pound out a paper. I still am under pressure but also have time to go over and fix things if I need to. Doesn't always work. I still often leave things until the last minute. Knowing that I at least have things under control alleviates alot of stress.

    I like how she puts this. I'm the same. I usually start off very zealous, and finish that way, but can't pace myself if my life depends on it. Like she says, sometimes my finish isn't as strong, but it's never a total loss.

    My parents are always on my back about my time management skills and (in regards to school projects) tease me often about "burning the midnight oil". I'm a big procrastinator, especially if it's something I have no interest in doing. I'll easily put a project off until the night before if it means I can have a lot of fun doing things that I enjoy in the meantime. I find that working on stuff I don't like/have no interest in really drains me emotionally. Does anyone else get like that?

    I wish i was still in school (life was easier then ). With me if i start something of interest, i quit when i get bored and find something else of interest, then get bored again, lol (It's not funny but i have to laugh).

    If i do something that does not interest me, i don't drain emotionally but definitely mentally .. I need continuous mental stimulation.

    Between work being so damn busy, I did not post a team thread last week for my Team (Team 8--GO Crazy Eights!!) of the Mileage Game. This weeks has been just as busy, but right now I am really thinking of going for a run, which would make it my first double ever or doing my team post. I think I will do my team post tomorrow. My team mates will understand a double getting in the way. Looks like I will make the kids something to eat and then go off for a small run (maybe.)

    I don't know if it drains me emotionally (maybe it does? haven't thought about it), but I really hate it. The only times I procrastinate are when I don't want to do something. If I have a huge deadline, but I really WANT to be working on the thing that's due, then I'll do it right away and won't procrastinate. But if I hate it, I'll have a hedonistic moment (or two, or five) and pick pleasure over pain...

    I will only post-pone work if i sense that i am unable to due it effectively at the moment. However the more familiar i am with the work at hand, the more systematic and thoroughly it is conducted. I don't like to deal with new things unless i have a fairly good grasp of it.
