Procrastination, its a real problem for many people. I got many things to do, but I postpone them so I can do things I don’t need to do.
I’ve been telling my self all week that I need to clean the yard, wash the car, and go out for a hike. Then Saturday morning comes, I wake up, drink a cup of coffee, look thru the kitchen door and say “I’ll do it later “ that’s a dangerous word or attitude if you will, I actually talk my self out of doing the chores that I planned to do all week. Then I sit down on my lazy chair, grab a book and before I even notice the day it’s over. This scenario is way to familiar.
Procrastination it’s a poison a thief of time, stealing the best days of our life’s, can cause stress, missed opportunities and self depreciation.
What I did to overcome this dangerous habit? First I started by acknowledging my problem, then think of ways I can improve this bad behavior. Instead of doing the big projects, I started in smaller ones and complete them, make a list of things I have to do, yes I wrote them on a piece of paper, the day before I repeat to my self “tomorrow you have things to do”, then when Saturday came, I woke up drink my cup of coffee, but this time I walk out of the door and started working on the things I have to do. It takes will power because procrastinating it’s a habit, and we need to break from it, if we don’t the years will go by, and we will have nothing to show, we will be empty handed. That’s a high price to pay just for procrastinating.
