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.
