Norske's Bookending - Turning work into pleasure
My problem is essentially that I have at best a distorted understanding of the time required to complete tasks. I therefore subconcieously feel that nearly any amount of delaying a task is acceptable because no matter what I will in the end manage to complete it. Recently this hasn't worked anymore (not that it ever really did - I was functioning far below my true potential) so I've decided to rebuild my work ethic from the ground up.
I've started by removing the most immediate outlets of my procrastination. I've eliminated my access to computer games and my usual internet forums. I have also decided that I will no longer listen to MP3s while working because this also easily becomes an outlet for procrastination - I just start browsing my collection and end up wasting untold hours renaming and reorganizing things.
The final step of finding enjoyment in all of my work still remains. I've always been interested in two of the subjects which I'm studying (Double major) but I still procrastinated even in those areas. I want to reach a higher level and truly excell, if I can make my "work" something I naturally do this goal will be easy I think. Easier said then done! :D
