I've always been a procrastinator - It's the reason why I was up at all hours of the night in high school trying to finish my chemistry homework hours before it was due. It's the reason why I never went to bed before 3am in college during the week. It's the reason why I cannot seem to get into work at an early hour. It's the reason why I'm late for everything. I always think I can fit just one more thing (and really, I never can). Procrastination is also the reason I take forever to get started on my workouts (not a good thing when you have other plans for later in the day). Let's take this morning, for example. My alarm went off at 5am for my hour-long workout. When did I actually get started? 6:20am. And what was I doing for that hour and twenty minutes? Nothing except laying in bed, saying "five more minutes," or "maybe I'll just do the workout this afternoon after work instead," or "I need more sleep, I'll just eat a quicker breakfast." Etc, etc, etc. Eventually, of course, I got my sorry self out of bed and out the door and enjoyed every minute of my workout. Just like I knew I would. Just an hour and twenty minutes later than I intended. So why was it so hard to get moving, even when I knew I'd be glad I got out there in the end?
This is just one small example out of MANY of how I waste alot of time. And I really don't have alot of time that I can afford to waste. Anyone have any tips on how to stop the vicious cycle of procrastination? I could use any and all advice.
