ive noticed and im aware of the fact that ive always wanted everything done this instant...

coming off meds- im tapering this time but i want to get off of them NOW
losing weight - im currently on yet another diet and when i lose 2 pound in a week (reccommended) im dissapointed and i want to lose 8 poubd in a week,so i get mad then throw in the towel

jobs like painting a room- i rush and rush and rush,rather than spending time getting it prepared properly i go non stop day and night until the jobs done

i seem to be like this in every area of my life its like a bug in my brain telling me i cant rest until the task is done ....

the question is ?

should i try and stop this behaviour,or accept that this sort of thing is going to send me to an early grave

oh how i wish i was laid back

I don't know that it is related to "anxiety," which is normally not energizing but debilitating.

I think you all are talking about wanting to get to the goal of feeling good about yourself because you accomplished a major task. Because you want the "fix" of the endorphins that comes from completing a task that has a major impact on your life, you run at full speed to the goal so that you can receive the reward of feeling good about what you did that much sooner.

Anxiety itself -- at least in the sense it is used on this forum to refer to fear and the sense of impending doom -- usually doesn't make people want to paint rooms!
