Old Habits are Hard to Break

It is February 7, and I'm just now contemplating 2010 resolutions. Why, you ask? Well, because I am a PROCRASTINATOR! There, I said it! There should be group therapy sessions for people like me, but we would just delay joining the group....not the right time, what to wear, just not ready, morning or night session?

I decided to research why I procrastinate (and why others procrastinate) and found a few reasons:
1. Poor work habits...lack of time management
2. Feeling overwhelmed
3. Trying to be perfect
4. Rather do something else, but why? Do you hate it, afraid of failure, overwhelmed, waiting for right time?

I decided that my reasons for procrastination are all combined into #4, and I also decided to make some positive changes. It takes 21 days to establish a new habit, and tomorrow is day 1. Using the words PROCRASTINATION NO MORE (21 letters) I am going to take one thing a day that I have been avoiding or putting off and do it. So tomorrow.....
    P     PUT some stuff in the attic 
   R
   O
   C
If you decide to do this exercise with me, leave a comment on what you will do on day one. Just think how much we will have accomplished in the next 21 days!! Here's to getting it done! Stay warm~

I think I'd rather watch to see what your procrastinations are. Yes, you inspire me. Maybe I will try to catch up with my scrapping today.
