No Procrastination Wednesday :)

Welcome to the second No Procrastination Wednesday. Anyone care to join me?

Procrastination is something that I've really struggled with. Since "waiting 'til the last minute--or later" is not the wisest way to run a home, I've decided to set aside a bit of time each week to focus on not procrastinating. (As a friend kindly pointed out, "that still leaves six days to procrastinate!")

One of the biggest areas "procrastination-wise" for me is letter-writing: slipping that thank you in the mail, sending a "thinking of you" card, remembering birthdays and holidays before the fact. Many times I've woken up the day of a birthday only to realize that I should have put something in the mail a week ago.

With that in mind I have two goals today:

  • Make a thorough list of all the birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays that I ought to remember
  • Make birthday, thank you, and thinking of you cards to have on hand
Hopefully having a list to remind me and cards already made will help me to be more diligent in this area. :)

Well, it took me till the end of the day to do the one simple thing that I was procrastinating on (changing the times on our automatic heating system), BUT it did get done. =) And thankfully so did a few other things that weren't on the list. I like No Procrastination Wednesday and goodness knows I need them!
