Confessions of a Lazy Girl
I struggle with laziness. Like everyday of my life pretty much. I would love nothing more than to stay in bed reading, watching TV and eating chips and salsa everyday. But I can't (unfortunately) because the way my life is set up I have a husband, kids and clients depending on me.
I manage to meet (and often) exceed expectations all the way around, but it's not easy. Procrastination is my arch nemesis. I have been known to avoid doing something for the most nonsensical reasons: "Oh, it'll only take me a few minutes, I'll do it tomorrow." Um, if it will only take a few minutes why not do it NOW?? I side-eye myself all the time.
One of my saving graces and my number one productivity hack has been writing DAILY to do lists. Because as much as I like wallowing in my laziness, I also live for that incredible feeling you get when something is DONE. I love marking stuff off my list! Like physically taking a pen- and pretending its a sword - and slaying one bullet point at a time!
Besides, I've come to realize the sooner I can get stuff done on my list, the more time I have to stay in bed, reading, watching TV and eating salsa and chips! WIN-WIN!
