Procrastination = My Middle Name

Yes, I am a full blown procrastinator! I've tried to change my ways, tried to be more on top of things, and in many cases I've succeeded. I like to be early, I plan things in advance, I always start projects full steam ahead. But somewhere in the middle, I run out of that steam. Especially when it comes to things I am so not interested in! Need an example? Ok, here's one for you...

I have a project due on May 3. You might be thinking, "hey that's no big deal, it's still a few weeks away" and you would be right. However, this project was originally due in January (yes, I postponed it). It's the final step before I can receive the credential I've been working on but for some reason I am just not motivated to finish it! Perhaps it could be the lack of job staring me in the face?! This project includes putting together a portfolio, a 5 page paper, and a power point presentation. Not too bad right? Guess how much of it I have completed so far? None?? We have a winner!! Oh and on top of that I have to do a different 6 page paper on a book I was supposed to have read. It's a make up assignment for missing class for being sick leaving early on our cruise. Oops.

Here's the book I'm supposed to read:

Think maybe "procrastination" might be #8? :)

Erika and I have read it...Maybe you can pay us to help you write your paper ; ) OH and I think they sell it on CD, that way you can listen to it AS you sew or lounge or blog or decorate or whatever. Good idea?!

Erika said...

I like Carrie's idea to listen to it on CD while you sew, lounge, blog, or decorate....there will be no more of the above after baby girl arrives.... :) Mindy

Thanks girls. I might actually pull an Erika and have Carrie read it for me then pay her to write the paper! Or perhaps the book on CD would be easier...not to mention cheaper! Ha!

you have PLENTY of time to do ALL of it....if it were me, I'd do it ALL the night before! haha... I'd help if I had read it. Good honest post! :)
