READING TIME: 1.5 minutes….so you can get busy doing something else! 🙂
Sadly, I am guilty of procrastinating. And I usually KNOW when I’m doing it!
Yes, when I feel frustrated, not meeting my goals, when I find myself wasting time, missing deadlines, or I’m feeling less productive….I’m usually procrastinating. That feeling of, “I don’t want to do ‘that’, but I need to do to ’that’, but then I don’t” – or I find something else to do. I can identify those feelings and frustrations that go with procrastination, and I can as easily identify what happens when I stop procrastinating and start getting down to business.
I know if I’m PRO-active (rather than, PROcrastinating) I’ll take action on things I’m avoiding and as I continue doing that, life starts to come to order, my goals will be met, I’ll even have more free time, my tasks will be completed, my to-do list will be checked off, and I’ll feel more productive. In generaly, I feel better!
I have a lot of things I “say” to myself to justify procrastination, but in reality that “justification” is just a nice way of saying I’m making excuses. Join me as we evaluate whether we’re PROcrastinating or PROactivating:
If you say: Then try this:
I dont’ have time Spend 30 minutes on it
I dont’ like doing it Do one thing you like, one you don’t
It takes too long Time it – you’ll be surprised
I’ll do it later Do it during your “prime time” of day
I’ll put it away later Put it away now – your done
Only I can do it Instruct/teach others how to do it
I don’t want to do it Delegate, barter, hire
I don’t want to start it Work 30 min. each day ’til done
Something else is more important Re-evaluate/Reprioritize
It must be done my way Get a life! That’s only in movies.
So….now that I FINALLY have this blog done, I can cross it off my list. I feel good. What will you get busy and do today!? Dont’ procrastinate!
