In an online conversation with Kristen Daukas, I talked about how I would wait until the last minute to do my research papers or assignments in general. when I was matriculating at Kaplan University. Part of it is that I work better under pressure. When my professors would require an outline or “rough draft,” I would actually turn in the actual, fully-written paper and 85% of the time that was okay. When it wasn’t I’d still write the fully-written paper, then create the outline in reverse. I hated writing papers from outlines because my work was always choppy. I’m an on-the-fly guy. I just do better that way.
The other reason I waited is, well, I’m a procrastinator. My father once made me look up the definition of procrastination when I was about 13 years old. He had asked if I knew what it meant, and I said no. He’s such a smart-a$$ that instead of telling me, he made me look it up in the ol’ Funk & Wagnalls. So, yeah, I’ll admit it: I put off a lot of stuff. Sometimes, even the stuff that I want to do, I’ll put it off. Not proud of it, but it happens; often. I’d even say I got really good at it.
So I thought I’d make a Top 10 List of why I procrastinate:
I’ll fill this in later…
So until tomorrow, same blog channel…
