My New Year's Resolution

I don't usually make New Year's Resolutions but this year I am. I have such a bad habit at procrastinating, and I am determined to stop!

So this year I am resolving to stop procrastinating so much. I work well under pressure and I don't mind deadlines, but my family suffers when I am having to do ten things at once. I do it to myself, I schedule too much then I don't do enough ahead of time. I know this about myself.

I never saw it as too much of an issue until recently. I don't like having no time to spend with my hubby and girls, its just no fun for any of us then. The youngest one especially has a hard time understanding that I am working, even though I am at home. So for her it just doesn't seem fair that I am not able to spend that time with her.

Spreading the work out, and getting it done instead of getting distracted by time sucking websites, will be a good thing to try and work on this year. I want time for all I do, plus time to do what I love, spending quality hours with my family. They deserve to have more time with me not stressing over other things that need to be getting done.

I will check in with you all in a month or two and let you know if I am succesful at all, wish me luck!
This resolution is, of course, in addition to my hopes for a succesful 2010 and lots of inspiration for writing. I hope that for all my fellow authors here as well.

Courtney, lots of luck!

Procrastinating hasn't generally been my issue. However, having enough time to get everything done... well, I've realized, realistically, that will never happen, given the way society is currently structured.
So, it's down to doing those things that mean the most to you and other.

Courtney, I wish you lots of luck, too!

I think it a shame that society is this way - technology was meant to give us more leisure time and time with our families, not less.

Good luck, Courtney.

I don't generally procrastinate because I hate time pressure, but I find that lately, there's too much to do. I have to figure out what's important and do that.

Happy New Year.
