Confessions of a Procrastinator
It seems as though, every time I am ready to make a major change in my life, I find myself up at 3 AM mapping out the strategy. I have 24 hours a day and 8-10 hours are loyally devoted to sleeping while the other 16 are a mix between eating chocolate and power napping. I do try to progress with small daily adjustments but they never seem to stick. For example, about 2 weeks ago I took my two younger sisters to the dentist for a check-up, it has been months since I’ve seen the dentist. My teeth are healthy but as I get older I fear for their life span. I picked up a brochure for Listerine that read, ‘It takes 21 DAYS to form a habit’. For the sake of a healthier mouth I accepted the challenge and brushed, flossed, and rinsed my mouth twice a day for about 7 days and bailed. It seems like the goals that I set are not concrete enough, like I literally have to draw a picture of them. I have to stop myself from unconsciously ignoring the things I want to accomplish by pondering in meaningless, unhelpful BS.
This Monday will be the first day of my Senior year, not to mention I am President of a campus club, and overdue on my financial aid. Besides graduating, I hope I can impact the lives of students, faculty, and industry professionals.To leave a landmark in peoples lives, and continue down a successful path. I need hard-work, practice, and dedication not slacking off until last minute. I want to make a change to this immediately.
Do you struggle with this issue? Have you struggled with this issue and found a solution? maybe an App? or home remedy?
P.S. I am currently planning my beach outfit and will be heading out at 9 AM. Maybe this calls for an #ootd.
Hope you enjoyed your summer!
