Procrastination

How many of you will put things off--like doing your taxes, your homework due next Monday, etc.--until the last possible minute? You know I've learned something: It is better to handle the unpleasant tasks, phone calls, etc, ASAP, and just get them out of the way. The older I get--I'm 43 now--I just think it's better for myself and everybody else involved.

Well am a very procastinating person; that's one liability in me I really want to get rid of but don't just know how or I just have to be so used to it sometimes it doesn't matter at all. But I agree w/ you; that the harder task should be done first so they could be out-of-the way. Honestly am still fighting for it.

I'm one of those people that puts things off until the last minute. I know I should. I already know that I shouldn't but it's tough for me to tackle tasks that I really have no desire to accomplish. I really hate school work. I'm a senior that only has a few more months to go until graduation and I'm like, man, I'm really sick and tired of school work, I wish I was just able to apply for jobs already and be done with it! It's making me want to stop doing all school work period.

Everybody will like to do thing in time. But nobody will get opportunities to do so.I used to plan to do things in time- but it never happened.So automatically i start postponing. That's what continuing in my life.

I still procrastinate a bit but I'm getting better as I get older, if you get things done straight away things don't build up and jobs become much easier. Some things I do better under pressure at the last minute like writing something I don't need to research much.
