A while ago, I announced that I'd try my hand at commissions. Sometime after that, I managed to land myself a fairly large one. AND said person was willing to pay considerably more than my asking price(thankfully, no money has been exchanged yet). I boldly announced that I'd have 40 pictures done in a fortnight.
...That was over a month ago. And I'm barely halfway through.
My problem is quite clear. It's procrastination that stems from indecisiveness over what to do with the limited time I have on a daily basis. My last journal entry, I mentioned my job security, and concern over dwindling hours. Since then, my fears have become somewhat...... unfounded. I worried about trying to make ends meet on a mere 12-16 hours a week. Turns out, I'm currently sitting on a base week of 22 hours. And with multiple departments finding a need for me, that number can climb to 26, or more. When you consider the time needed for housekeeping, meal preparation, and of course, sleep, it doesn't leave me with alot of breathing room.
....And with the time I do have, I'm often at a loss to decide what to do with it. Do I fire out a few pics in Daz studio, or do I tend to that ever growing gaming pile of shame? Often, I find myself wasting whole hours on youtube, or facebook, or something that doesn't require a great deal of mental investment so that I can pull myself out in a pinch.
Clearly though, this is a problem. I've missed the overly optimistic deadline I set myself, and I'm finding it hard to re-motivate myself. So, I ask you all this: Do you guys struggle with procrastination too? And if so, how do you deal with it?
