“Procrastination is, hands down, our favorite form of self-sabotage.” Alyce Cornyn-Selby
What happens when we procrastinate? Not only does “it” not get done, but the energy lost to the act of procrastinating is painful. Do any of these sound like you?
- berating yourself for being lazy
- always racing because you waited until the last minute
- never feeling good about what you do because you did it in a hurry
- the list of to-do’s is so long you don’t know where to begin
Today, gift yourself with action on one item. Just one! Estimate how long it will really take to complete. Set aside “time and a half” – if it will take 10 minutes, set aside 15. When the time comes to do “it”, set a timer, and just begin. When you are finished, celebrate!
What would it feel like to stop procrastinating?
