pro·cras·ti·nate

To put off doing something, especially out of habitual carelessness.  To postpone or delay needlessly.

Why? Why do we do this to our selves? I do it. Way too often.  For example: at work we each are assigned 3 units to detail each month.  Yes these trucks get cleaned and washed every 12 hour shift.  But to be sure they are really clean we detail them.  They give us the whole month to do this but me, well I always seem to wait to do mine until the very last few days of the month and then I am working like crazy to get them done(and yes I got them done for this month).  whew, Im tired just thinking about all that work.
So why is it I always put it off til the very last moment. There has to be some reason...but you know I would bet everyone I know does it. That's right even you :)
So what do I do to fix this? There are so many things in my life that need tending to, is it really that big a deal that I do this, it isn't hurting anyone is it? no of course not. (well except me when I have to rush to get stuff done) But hey thats when I get all my best stuff done...like that blanket that needs go be done for Steph oh and that sock monkey I am working on for Jason's birthday(which was Friday. oops...) or the...well as you can see my list of things to finish is longer than I want to think about today, maybe I will finish some of those things this weekend.  Or maybe next weekend...anyway.  I bring this up because it is one of the things about myself I would like to improve on.  This is something I can fix, with time and effort...maybe I'll start on that tomorrow  :)
