Procrastination

"Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday."

-- Don Marquis

Most of us struggle with procrastination -- the 'I'll do it later' syndrome. If this is one of your key time wasters, take time to become more aware of your behaviour.
- Identify what you are procrastinating.
- Identify why you have not done these things. Seek out your deepest reason.
- Is there a fear underlying your reason? There is for most people.

We typically procrastinate because of unclear goals, lack of information and/or skills, fear of moving into new territory, fear of failure or success, feeling overwhelmed, lack of time due to over-commitments, poor timing, and general disorganization.

"Much of the stress that people feel doesn't come from having too much to do. It comes from not finishing what they started."

-- David Allen

And, just for fun:

"The best labor saving device is doing it tomorrow."

I've been meaning to stop procrastinating.

I've got some other things to do first.

When I get arround to them.

My therapist and I talked about this very same topic today. I learned a lot about myself.

*Waves hand* Queen of Procrastination here!

Have to tell you - my house has been cluttered for so long and this morning I watched Oprah and it was De-clutter Your Life - I took on the tips and spent all day tidying and sorting and cleaning - and although I am not completely done yet - wow I feel 100lbs lighter and the house looks great too!

This is something I'd been putting off for 2 years - get it done, you WILL feel better - I promise!
