Hello everyone, new here
Hello to all of you in PA.
I'm new here, just joined over the weekend. My name's Celeste and I am a chronic procrastinator. Emphasis on the "chronic." I really, really want to do something about my procrastination, because it's ruining my life bit by bit, but to be honest, I have no idea where to start. Or how to start. What do I do first? What steps do I take? Will somebody please lay a curse on me or something so I won't end up procrastinating on working on my procrastination?
Right now, I'm going through a mini-panic attack, because I've just decided to speak to my managing editor (I work as a writer for a university publication, by the way) about all the articles I've failed to submit on time and are now considered stale. I've decided to confess my sins to him and to explain my problem--NOT to offer excuses, because honestly, at this point, no excuse would fly. But I'm practically frozen in my chair, afraid of approaching him and being overheard by my other workmates, and being humiliated...gah! If anybody out there has a bunch of extra vertebrae lying around, please contact me. I'll pay any price.
Um, sorry, didn't mean to ramble on. I'm just beginning to explore the site, and already I found this article about chronic procrastination being an issue of addiction, not just an issue of poor time management. Oh, that so hit home. I've discovered something new about myself. Thank you so much for that.
I hope you all have a great day.
