I have a dirty secret to share. And I need your help and advice in getting rid of it. I leave almost everything until the last minute. I don`t do it on purpose. I`m actually very organized. (In fact, I think that may be part of the problem) I know when a deadline is coming, I know about how long it will take (or I think I know), and then I work until midnight to get it out on time. Part of the problem is that I have a lot to do. Business is good. So I`m often just taking care of what seems most important - putting out fires. I end up at the last moment calling a client for a last minute needed detail - it embarrasses me and I think it is unprofessional.
Would you mind sharing with me your strategies for overcoming this problem? I know I can`t be the only one with this disease. And I believe others have overcome it. I have read time management books, I have read get organized books. But they don`t seem to help me. I don`t think they address whatever is at the heart of this problem. I`d love to hear from fellow sufferers and overcomers. Thanks,
