Hi and intro from new participant wrkinprogrss
I'm new here--I've been looking for a good place to post my daily to-do lists, as I find that I do better at accomplishing things if I tell other people I'm going to do them and if I can claim public credit for getting them done.
I only recently realized that procrastination has been a long-term underlying problem for me. This became clear while I was reading The Procrastination Equation. What has been obvious to me for a lot longer is that I am an internet addict. I'm working on moderating my internet use, with help from folks at Online Gamers Anonymous and SMART Recovery, but I have quite a ways to go on that. Hopefully working explicitly on my procrastination will help.
Some miscellaneous facts about me: I'm 52, employed in a high-tech job, and a lifelong California resident. I'm behind schedule on my job work, my rented house is very cluttered and in need of various sorts of cleaning and upkeep, and I've been putting off some big financial things. I'm doing pretty well at exercising regularly. Some of my pleasures in life are photography (currently mostly nature and garden), dance, and reading fiction. Unfortunately, reading fiction has long been a major way I've procrastinated, and photography can be another, though thankfully not to the same extent. The challenge is to be moderate and balanced. I'm not there, yet, but I'm working on it.
Thanks being here--I'm smiling and feeling hopeful as I write this, and I look forward to getting to know you!
