It's not even a question of there being plenty of work for me to do because there are things I could go ahead and get done before time, and things I need to take care of, but for some reason I am just distractable. This causes me to go out of my mind with some strange type of "self-inflicted boredom". Sounds crazy I know, but it's like I can't keep my mind on business or important issues. So I doodle around, getting necessary stuff done but daydreaming and clock watching way more than I need to.
The funny thing is that I work well under pressure, so when I do this and it comes down to a crunch, I excel with flying colors but in seeing how easy it was to complete said mission, I think to myself, "why didn't I go ahead and get this done weeks ago??"
I used to do it in school too. Wait until the last possible moment on a very big term paper or such that was due and detrimental to my grade, and then all but ace the thing.
People don't get it... I don't either. I never was much of a studyer but could make the grade if I so desired. I always have had a hard time focusing. Imagine what I could have acconplished if I had just made that extra effort!!
