Suck it up, Buttercup

That's what it's time for.... After using excuses as crutches for far too long, it's time to suck it up and start doing what I need to do. This is true in many areas of my life. I have a horrible tendency to procrastinate. Just a couple of examples of how that's bad.

  1. I have put off finishing my thesis only to discover that it will net me a substantial pay raise next year.  Now I have to work my ass off to get it done in time. 
  2. Money is tight - really tight...but by putting off keeping on top of the checking account, I just cost us $26.00... bummer...
  3. The pile of mail on my desk is staggering.  It's not that hard to deal with and will take me 10 minutes tops. If I did it everyday it would take me 2-3 minutes at most.  Instead I let it pile up until I can't stand it anymore. 
  4. Grading - I have put off grading a project for a month now. I have all kinds of "reasons" for not doing it but the bottom line is - I just didn't feel like it.  So now I am in a crunch to get it done since the school year is ending next week. 
Do you see a pattern here?? I sure do.  So I am going to work on my procrastination.  Okay, poor choice of words...I'm really good at procrastination....I'm going to work on beating it.  Starting right here, right now with a workout of some sort.  Time to Suck It Up Buttercup!!!!!
