Hi all. I'm glad to have found you. My procrastination problem has prevented me from living a full life for almost 20 years now. I'm so sick of it. I recognize it as an addiction. I'm a writer, and it makes me sick to think of all the times I've hurt myself, my family, and the people who have put their trust in me because of my behavior. Am struggling now with the last stage of a book project, and all the bad old patterns and thoughts have come to the surface again. I was extremely, extremely lucky to get this deal and now I'm screwing it up once again. Seems like the higher the upside, and the bigger the stakes, the worse my problem becomes. Does that sound familiar to anyone? I look forward to participating here. Thanks for being here, all of you. It makes me feel less alone.   

Great first step Jupiter

Thanks for joining us and know you are among friends here.  We all have lived the truth of your struggle, please feel free to ask questions and do browse the literature as it was what helped me when I first found the site.  We also have a 15 minute morning phone bridge checkin at 218-339-3600 the entry code is 119655# at 8:30 eastern time Monday thru Friday.  There you can find phone hook up buddies who will share their experience strength and hope around this program with you. Please join us.

The tools will help a lot since you seem to have a deer in headlights thing going on in your project and oooh how I can relate to that one, but you can do it but focus so focus on the tools.  In overwhelm I have found that breaking it down has the best first impact.

I have a deadline issue that I am trying to work through and it may require me to loose a small amount of profit to hire a temp for a few days.  I'd rather not spend the money but a deadline is a deadline and it must me met with good product.
