New here and very excited
I was excited to find this forum, as I've been having major problems with procrastination. This week I finally realized I had a problem.
I'm working on a large project for a publishing company. I write ESL books from home. I was given the job of writing 6 books in 4 months... Not an easy task, but somewhat doable. They are ESL books for young leaners -- nothing too academic.
I've written 4 of 6 books, but the last two are a big problem. I just can't get it in gear. I should be writing one unit per day, but instead I've written 1 unit in the last week. I recenly made up some excuses and managed to get an extension on my deadline, but I feel guilty about it.
I've always been somewhat of a procrastinator, but I got through it -- somehow. But now I can't afford to procrastinate anymore...literally. I scored this contract with a biggish company, which could give me more work in the future if I do a good job. I would hate to fail due to procrastination.
So, I was feeling especially crappy today after wasting yet another full day, so I googled "procrastination problem" and found this group. I'm excited about keeping myself accountable by posting here.
Looking forward to kicking things into gear and watching others do the same.
