Scheduling just doesn't seem to work for me
I've been a procrastinator all my life. I do know why I do it (mostly perfectionism and not having a scheduled time that I have to work), but it's not helping much. I'm good about the little things, it's the big ones that I keep putting off.
I have 3 big projects this weekend: grade papers, huge, incredibly important work project, and clean. I thought I'd try spending a 1/2 hour on each, then take a break for the 4th half hour. But the problem came when I realized that if I did this, I would *only* get 2 hours of work done on the project if I followed the schedule for 8 hours. If I just worked on the project, I could put in a whole 8 hours.
Now, I logically know that 2 hours are better than nothing and that I would also be doing work on other things at the same time, and not get burned out, but I just can't get past it.
Today, I did a 1/2 hour on the papers, 1/2 hour on exercise, then I started thinking about the big project and fell apart.
Any suggestions? Anyone been through this?
