I have a very serious problem with procrastination. In fact, I have let it rule my whole life and the conseqenses have been terrible. When I was at college my studies took much more time that it should. In my working life it has been disastrous. I have delayed important work so many times that I have lost control of work which has caused depression more than once.
I have had councelling and even been on sick leave because of depression. But the councelling has always centred around other stuff, such as childhood, my married life etc. which haven't really been a problem to me. I eat anti-depressants which actually facilitates my procrastination as they make me feel less guilty.
Now I'm 38 and I have never been able to end my habit of procrastination. Just recently I have started to think about procrastination as an addiction, as I use avoidance to escape reality just like other addicts use their drug.
So, finding this site was great. However, I have tried to change and failed so many times that I don't know if I'm able to change at all. When I look at your to do-lists on the check-in forum I'm in awe. I could never be so effective. What I have to do is to start at the very bottom with short to do-lists.
So, sorry about my long rant. Finding this community is fantastic.
