fix YOU

I am currently reading 'Write it down, Make it happen' Its a really interesting
book  especially how she recommends you to visualize yourself doing things
before you actually do. This helps you to prepare yourself and get in the mindset, 
so that you can reach your goals. I am someone who when overwhelmed, 
I procrastinate. I have been writing various journal entries, sweeping out the cobwebs
of each corner of my subconscious. I am trying to talk myself into being a better
person basically.

I now know why I procrastinate when it comes to school work. 
So, Im working out ways to prevent those reasons from being an issue. Mainly 
the reasons are not fully understanding the task, not knowing how to do the task &
not wanting to do the task. If I get more clarification when needed, if I research more 
and if I just get all the tedious tasks over with quickly, I can focus on the more
enjoyable work. I
n the book, someone even wrote to their unborn baby and future 
husband though they didn't know who it would be. Writing things down, imagining how
you want to be...helps a lot. It takes the anxiety out of everything and helps you to 
uncover what you really want when previously you didn't even know.

Writing things down brings all that is in your subconscious over to your conscious
mind... so that you can find out why you do the things you do and you can change 
accordingly. Having thoughts is one thing, but when you physically write 
becomes concrete and you can go back and read it over and over.

Have you ever noticed how writing lists and crossing things off feels much better
than just typing it on a computer ? You tend to remember stuff more when you 
actually write it manually. 

Little by little I am uncovering my difficulties and coming up with a solution.
I will share what I have come up with.

My Challenges:
Self-Discipline / Procrastination / Focusing / Organization

So then I should:

  • Do things right away instead of putting them off
  • Write down everything in my planner
  • Don't take laptop to class
  • Pay attention to deadlines
  • Listen / Bring voice recorder
P.S to Self - You must stop being so bloody addicted to facebook and youtube !
Thats a big one... The library is directly across from my new apartment which 
Im moving into in September so I will utilize that to the max. Hopefully that will help 
me to seperate my school stress from my home life.
