I think I’m finally getting into a routine with my daily slices.
I usually slice at night.
I am never one day ahead, although it would be great if I were.
And, I am on mountain time, which means I have to post my slices no later than 10:00 pm my time. That feels like a lot of pressure to me, so I’m trying to slice earlier. That way I won’t find myself rushing to post something…anything at the very last minute.
I am a chronically late person. I try not to be, but I have a hard time getting places on time. Over the years, I’ve gotten better about this, but I still struggle with schedules.
I don’t do well with submitting claims to my insurance company on time.
I wait until the last possible minute to do report cards.
I let emails accumulate in my inbox with the excuse that I’ll get to them later.
I am a procrastinator.
So, I do better with deadlines; they help me get my work done by feeling a sense of urgency…finally. Otherwise, things just languish. I always figure I have plenty of time until the deadline looms closer and then it’s here and I’m scrambling to meet it.
So, I am going to try to address things as they come up. Either delete/throw out or take care of them. It seems so much easier that way and yet, for people like me, it’s a real challenge.
I will cut myself some slack if I fall behind or if I forget, but I am not going to forgive myself if I fall into a new cycle of procrastination.
The clock is a-ticking.
