1. I did the hard work – reviewed the records, made notes, and then dictated the report and edited it. It’s ready to go, except there’s two documents I’m missing. I don’t think they’ll make any difference, but I don’t have them.
Still, even though there’s no deadline, I’m fighting the urge to submit the report, the incomplete report, right now.
2. I’m working pretty hard on the book, plugging away, making progress, but still feel this pressure to hurry up and get it done. Why? There’s no deadline. Nobody is going to get this published ahead of me. What’s the hurry?
Do I just want to get things done, so I can cross them off and they’re not hanging over my head?
Do I want the reward, the satisfaction of completing something?
Am I simply impatient?
Is this the opposite of procrastination??????
