Hanging over me are a couple of things that I have been putting off for about a month now! Who knows why??
I was at a coffee group the other day, with a great bunch of girls who I can be totally honest with. We were all fessing up to the things that make us freak out/panic/get anxious (have you got all night??!!)
So I told them about my procrastination issue. All three things involved using the phone... to make a specialist appointment, to book a hall, to arrange a holiday with a friend. Random things. Why do I procrastinate, it's really not good for my blood pressure or my peace of mind!?!?
These friends came up with a bunch of suggestions to jolt me out of my procrastinating ways. One suggested penalties or rewards (been there, done that... it only increases my guilt); another offered to txt me every day to remind me (could get expensive?); finally a Gem of a suggestion: Why don't I confess to my procrastination on my blog... and then have to report back in a week!? That'd work! Brilliant!
Problem is, that was a week and a half ago, and here I am finally getting around to it! I know, I am the Queen of Procrastination.
But also today I managed to tick some things off my mental list: I booked the hall, I made the specialist appointment and I printed out a calendar to stick on the fridge so I can write all my appointments down (so I won't forget them, like last week). It's a Google calendar. You can input stuff and then print it, you can do it weekly, monthly, whatever. Mr G was impressed.
So now there's just one more thing on my to-do list. I have to ring my long-suffering friend in the UK. If she's still talking to me, that is!!
(Maya forgive me, I can't seem to to get the time zones figured out... give me a day and time to call!)
