I have some projects due over the next few days as the quarter ends and I really need to get on top of them. Please pray that I can overcome my procrastination and slothfulness.

Sad

I could use some more prayers in this department.

I have a lot of stuff due Friday, so I asked one of my play directors if I could take the day off today to do homework instead of working on our school play's set. Then I didn't start on anything until after set construction would have been over. So not only am I a lazy procrastinating slacker, now I'm also taking advantage of other peoples' generosity and shirking my obligations. Lord, have mercy on me!

Lord, have mercy.

I've had this problem many, many times.  I've found that if you pay attention it's part of a process.  If I was going to start a paper, I knew beforehand to at least get semi-started far in advance and take all the time I needed.  I'd punch out 3 or 4 pages, break for a few hours doing whatever, then repeat.  I'm assuming that you work, as I did, so I always took that into account as well.

Good luck!
