I continue to amaze myself with how consistent I am about procrastination. Over the years of this reoccurring matter, I've come to an understanding and have accepted that this is just who I am. Let me fill you in here, I have about 15-18 pieces to get done before the beginning of June...this gives me 5 weeks to accomplish something that should of been in the works the past few months. But whats life without a little last minute risk...within those 5 weeks I'll be out of the studio for 3 days, along with being MIA for another week after that...figuring out that situation, my 5 weeks has turned into 3.5 weeks.
I realize this was my decision to do what I do best, and let myself die over the next few weeks whipping these things out. Although, for some oddly satisfying reason, this is how I manage my life. I would like to believe that one day in my adult life I will figure it out, and be one of those individuals who are always on top of their tasks 3 weeks in advance...but honestly, I know that will never happen, and I know I'm not alone in this dilemma.
Anyways, I always seem to find a way to get what I need done, when it needs to be done...it may not be the most efficient way, but I've figured out a system that works for me. Once you think about it, living this kind of lifestyle is like constantly setting PR's. You are always pushing your limits to see how well you do under pressure in a short amount of time. Again, this logic is nothing near relaxing, but where's the fun in living an organized, safe life...psh. I'd also like to add that instead of working on another piece, I'v taken the time to sit here and talk about my special skill of procrastination...furthering my contribution to this vicious cycle.
