Procrastination, Productivity… Progress? (via the self-styled life)

I love this post, and it got me thinking about procrastination, perfection and productivity. I totally believe there is a correlation between procrastinating and being a perfectionist. I know I finish things, and I finish them well under pressure, so I almost start thinking that the pressure created by procrastinating is the reason I get it done. I worry that I won’t be efficient with time if I start working on something too early. Besides, when I start working on something too early, I get digressed fairly quickly reading news, blog posts (I reached this one while I started 4 days early on an essay assignment). But when there is a time crunch, I focus. Maybe I am still in my college phase (I am after all in college, although I should have grown out of it since I worked in between and all that).
Actually, as I am nearing my graduation date and I will enter the work world again, I need to use these reflections to grow out of the college phase, and become an adult—by actually focusing on doing tasks without all-nighters, being productive without the time crunch, and being perfect without losing sleep over it!

Are you guys productive and perfect? What is your secret? Comment away!

    I’ve been meaning to comment for a while… but …… procrastinated….

    Realistically, Perfection / productivity are contra-procrastinators by definition. I can never with full conviction say I gave my 100% if I did it last minute – that is the scary realization I know/remind myself of – it has not shaken me out of procrastination, but sure gets me thinking!
    Let’s see where I pan out in the future – I expect to get a bit more organized soon…..(someday)
