Serial Procrastinator

Procrastination. That seems to be something I've become rather good at and I hate it! I have great plans and they never seem to come about. I don't really know where the days go sometimes. I manage to keep ontop of housework but I guess that has a lot to do with the fact that I'm a bit of a Monica and can't relax in mess. I. Just. Can't. I've also become better (in the last 7 days at least) at getting some daily exercise which has much to do with the Wii fit we got for Christmas. However, when it comes to creative-ness I am a serial procrastinator. For example, for the last week or so I have planned to dig out the fabric for my first quilt and get cutting but something else always gets in the way... like housework, cooking, playing with Robyn, exercise etc etc etc... I wonder if it's because I'm too scared to cut the fabric or if it's because crafting is at the bottom of my "must get done" daily list? I think it's probably a little of both.
What is the opposite of procrastinate? Proactive? Perhaps that should be my catch word for 2010 - be more proactive when it comes to my craft time. I have lots of plans and if I am to achieve them then being more creatively proactive is definitely called for.

Perhaps I should set myself some goals - I am going to aim to start cutting that fabric tonight - watch this space for an update!!

Oh I so hear you on the procrastination! Although I have to say that my procrastination tends to be more housework related than crafting... I'm pretty quick to start a project but finishing it is another matter. Can't wait to see the quilt fabrics - oh and I'm supremely jealous of your new machine.
