I think one of my biggest flaws is procrastination. What leads to it is my ability to come up with excuses and problems for why I can't do what I want to do when really there are none; it's just me simply being lazy or afraid. I always tell myself that I could probably do more and do better if I had someone pushing me to do it. If I had someone caring about what I do, I'd be more excited to do it but I think that's also giving myself another excuse to not act. The only person I should care about is me and what I want. Another horrible form of procrastination that rears its ugly head is never being able to finish what I start. Whether it's a crochet project, a logo someone asked me to do or an exercise plan that I had worked out for myself, I never go through with it. I don't know if that's me procrastinating or being lazy or just not having enough motivation to do anything.
During college, I was the best at procrastinatingbut I always got the work done. Although because I left it till last minute, it leaves me staying up till the dead of night to try and finish which usually leads to 'half assed' work. I put things off till I either forget them or lose interest in them. I wish I knew why I was like that and how I can get over such a huge flaw. It always seems to get in the way of what I want to do or accomplish. I thought by now procrastination would have gotten the better of me concerning this Blog but instead, I find myself eager to post every day for this challenge and every week simply because I want to share my thoughts and perhaps it's the feeling of living up to what people expect, delivering on unspoken promises to have content each week or every day.
It had cost me a few things, to procrastinate. I could have worked towards better grades, I could have been more excited about starting a business but instead, I bring myself down with excuses.

Don't let it kill yours as I have allowed it to kill mine many times.
