Hi I am new to all this but delighted I found it as procrastination has always affected my life and I finally want to change. In spite of the way I am I have achieved some things but this has always been out of fear or to please others now I want to do things for myslef and find my motivation very low. I am 44 years old and a chronic procrastinator. My family call me last minute Mary as I leave everything to the last minute. I have a talent at painting but don't practice enough. I am not working at the minute and want to start doing portraits to make some money but even though I would love this I keep putting it off. I have achieved in various educational courses that I took but not too much in work or the thing I put off most keeping the house clean and tidy. The first thing I read on this site was how visualisation works and it does. Aslo sometimes there is nothing for it but a deep breath and bite the bullet. The feeling is great when you do achieve things though.



Welcome, Marytina!

Many of us deal with the same phenomenon:  we procrastinate even on things we WANT to do.  We're glad your here ... we are working together to find balance in all aspects of our lives.

I am sure you will find this site very useful, especially the check in system or the chat to commit to work and accomplish it in short bursts. Please keep coming back. Try and shed the label that your family has assigned you. My biggest problem was that I internalised the belief that I am procrastinator and when you truly start to believe it, that's when things started going downhill!
