The bad news is, they never got around to holding the first meeting.

The good news is, they never collected the dues either.

Hi Jordon

Procrastination:

For me to ensure that I deal with things on time - is to set deadlines, within the time allotted, example: if required in 1 week – then I allow 4 days max, if 1 month the 3 weeks,

I'm not lazy. I just have this philosophical approach; is it really important to do this, now. Today. No... I'll think about it sometime later, if the situation has changed. Let's see then.

Angie, my dear wife adds the task that needs to be done on her notebook and reminds me every:

0.1 hr if has to be done today
0.5 hr next day
0.8 hr next 2-5days
1.2 hr next week
10 times daily anytime after that

I do procrastinate sometimes, depending on what needs to be done.

If i like to do what need's to be done, will be done immedietly, if i don't chances are i'll put it off till i get harrassed about it, or when it needs to be done in the next 10 mins. >_<

Start doing it in 10mins and don't think. Just do. Thinking about doing work never works. If I think about how much I want to do an assignment it leads to me not doing it at all. It doesn't help that my priority is to sleep if i feel like it. My crappy bed calls me to me to embrace it more than my gf at times.
