I do this to myself all the time too. I have come to the realization that I do my best work in “last minute panic” mode and when I am under a lot of stress. This is fine! Some people just work like that, and reassuringly, there are lots of jobs for people like us who sort of enjoy stress in a weird way. 

I also find that I get more done when my schedule is busier. It allows me to allocate my time and schedule everything out, which I really enjoy doing. When I have too much free time, my mind tends to wander and I wind up doing stupid stuff like playing video games instead of focusing on the one or two important things I have to do. However, if I have say 10 important things to do, then I’m going to sit down, focus, and hammer them out one by one and ensure I don’t get distracted.

You may want to check out Tim Ferriss’ book, “The 4-Hour Workweek”, which is about scheduling/outsourcing and other techniques to make your life easier.

Im exactlt the same,but it just works for me. But I also know that I cant get away with it when planning a wedding because everything has to be booked etc. But I always seem to react better when Im doing stuff last minute!!

I am EXACTLY the same way! For some reason, I work better under stress. Last semester I took time to study for my exams and I did okay, but not great. The next exam, I pulled an all nighter and got a much better grade. I also think i’m a procrastinator.. i wait till the very last minute and then stress non-stop about it..

Procastinators unite!…..tomorrow…lol
