This everything started about two years ago. One day I was talking on the phone to Sam, a good friend of mine. She was going to organize a picnic and asked a lot of people to join. “I can not invite you,” she told me. “You are always late and I can not make fifteen guys wait until you come.” It sounded too opened and too frustrating. I knew that I had a problem of being always late, but hearing such a thing from my friend was like being labeled “a wet blanket”. In that moment I suddenly remembered a terrible scene when one of my first boyfriends Spence was about to break up with me. He told me that he’d got tried of waiting for me downstairs for hours while I am getting ready to go out. Another boyfriend of mine (Larry) couldn’t make it even for more than three dates – he stopped calling me without any explanations. I really liked that guy a lot, but I still felt too lazy to start looking for ways to change something in me.
After that talk to Sam I did some serious thinking and realized a lot of things I had never been concerned about before. Being always late was actually only the top of the pyramid of my personal problems. I was a terrible procrastinator, and putting the most important things off was something absolutely usual for me. Because of my inability to organize myself properly, I was frequently missing the deadlines for submission of my written assignments and presentations in college. I analyzed my daily behaviors and figured out how many avoidable and emotionally exhausting stresses I used to have as a result of my habit to procrastinate. I realized that if I didn’t do something really big to change my chronic procrastination habit and start managing my stuff more effectively, I would lose my friends, lose all good prospects for my future and lose my whole life.
I have to confess that it took some time for me to summon the courage and admit that I really had a problem with controlling my own time. However, as I have learned later on from different books on time management, I was lucky not to get into a real trouble in order to understand that I need to change myself. I mean, many people start looking for the ways to improve own skills on managing their time in those situations, when they are under a great risk of failing their exams, or when they are about to be fired for poor performance at work. Therefore, I decided to create this site as a helping hand for all readers of mine, who are facing the same difficulties and need some piece of advice on gaining full control on their own time.
