Writing things down, doesn’t help me

The last post I wrote, I talked about planning my day of study yesterday. Well, that was all fine and dandy, but it failed me. Now I remember why I don’t write things down.

So, what I did was, I planned out my day and wrote everything down.

What actually happened was, I woke up around 4am, couldn’t get back to sleep and had my alarm clock set for 6:30am. My plan was to get up, work out, shower, and head out to the school to study but after being awake in the middle of the night, I felt groggy and lazy when my alarm went off. Therefore, I did not end up going through with my plans to go to school to study. I did study but probably not as well as I could have if I went to the school to study but we’ll never know now since I DIDN’T go to the school to study. Instead I stayed home.

I feel like every time I write things down, it’s like I’m writing it down to avoid it.

Is it just me or do other people have that problem? Like, I seem to accomplish more when I don’t have things written down. I know it’s weird right?

I have never been an agenda person and as you can probably tell, to do lists never worked for me either. Right now, I keep my appointments and schedules on my phone’s calendar but I have never been an agenda person in the sense of how school’s have taught us to use agendas. I was never able to keep an agenda for school for very long. I would start and give up. I feel like maybe I have associated agenda’s with procrastinating because we were “taught” to use an agenda in school and well I procrastinated all the time in school. I really don’t know what to do to keep me on track. Anyone got any tips?
