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!
