I have a serious issue with this. I mean, serious enough that I start to dread the easiest, most basic tasks that I know will only take a few minutes to complete. If there's anything about the task that I'm uncomfortable with or anxious about (a piece of jewelry coming out less than par, a task I'm not 1,000% sure how to do, etc.) I put it off for days...even weeks sometimes. And it gets to the point where I start feeling slightly sick when I think about it. So that's a problem. Sometimes I don't even realize it's something I'm procrastinating until it's already delayed or ridiculously close to the deadline. Why can't I just get things done? I know how much I hate worrying about them and putting things off will only make me feel worse.
So starting this week:
I'll get the things I need to do DONE by the end of the week.
I'll start recognizing things I'm putting off before I let them go too long and I'll complete them as soon as I can.
There's no way I'll automatically stop procrastinating, but if I make a habit of this, maybe I won't feel so uncomfortable about things like this anymore. Seriously, just thinking about some of the things I have to do right now makes my arms go a little numb...how awful is that? I should probably seek professional help about this, ha. No, but seriously, I probably should.
So tonight, I'll start one of the jewelry tasks I've been putting off and I'll finish the other jewelry task I've had ready to finish for a few days now. Both things have aspects about them that make me nervous (I'm afraid they won't turn out as good as I want them to so I'm avoiding them...which isn't helping the situation at all...it is what it is, putting them off won't change that).
On a brighter note, I started writing a short story when I got that Asus t100 and I'm really happy with it so far. It's giving me the chance to work on the voice I want my writing to have.
