This week's question:
Procrastination: does it rule your life? Or are you more of the prepared/scheduled type? (Thank you, Lena Sledge!)
When it comes to work I am a very prepared scheduled type. In fact, if I know something has to be done, it will eat at me until it gets done. That being said, I am learning to tone down some of my inner panic as a lot of my job requires going with the flow. A lot of the time we will be waiting on a crutial piece before we can release something. So what I've learned to do is prepare the post/campaign/etc and just leave a bolded notation where that missing piece goes. That way, once that missing info is ready all I have to do it enter it in and we are good to go. It really helps with my panic issues.
For blogging, I also am very prepared and scheduled. I use a desktop sticky note to keep track of my review due dates. I also use Google Calendars like mad crazy. I try to have at least two weeks of reviews scheduled in advance. For memes/my book birthday features, I try to have about a month's worth scheduled at any given time. In fact, I hardly read over this long holiday break, but I wrote and scheduled a TON of posts. I now have 8+ weeks of meme posts written. I just like the breathing room that kind of advance posting gives me. That way if I get really overwhelmed with work or life, I don't have to worry about the blog going to the way side.
Now when it comes to cleaning my house/laundry/dishes/dinner/any other home duties, I am the WORST procrastinator in the world. Out of that list, the only chore that isn't like shooting things under my fingernails is doing the dishes, but that is only because my hubby installed a really awesome dishwasher that makes the dishes sparkly clean. But for the other stuff, I absolutely despise it. In fact, one of my biggest goals with my newish job is to make enough money to afford a cleaning lady. I'll still have to make the dinners and do the laundry, but all of the other cleaning stuff can be placed in much more capable hands, and I will be more than happy to hand those reigns over.
