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.
- 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.
- Money is tight - really tight...but by putting off keeping on top of the checking account, I just cost us $26.00... bummer...
- 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.
- 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!!!!!
