So, it’s official: I’m the world’s worst blogger. I read in an article once about blogging that to have a successful blog, you have to do it every day. I did it last in March, stopping after an incredible number of three posts.
The problem is, I’m a champion procrastinator. If there was an Olympic event for procrastinating, I’m pretty sure I’d take home the gold. I just have this ability to put things off until the last minute. I tell myself I function better with a deadline looming, but really it’s just plain poor discipline and I just cause myself unnecessary stress. I don’t even want to wonder how many opportunities I’ve missed because of this. And it makes me a terrible blogger.
It’s not as if I can say I’m too busy to write. I’m really not. In fact, I very much want to become a better writer, so blogging is a very good way to improve my skills and I have enough time every day to write at least something. And I have more than enough stuff to write about, so that’s a lame excuse. But still I procrastinate.
I won’t bore you with other examples of how I put things off. Suffice it to say that if I were to get into the habit of doing today’s work today, I’d probably get a lot more done. If anyone has any advice on how to break this habit it would be much appreciated.
At least I got a new mirror for the bathroom (in May!)
