Good Days…Bad Days With Maureen Pratt

A tip for rising above procrastination

Maureen Pratt Author PicPutting off something important? Waiting for the perfect moment before you take action on a step toward a goal?

We all do it, of course. But what separates failures from successes? The ability to throw aside the tendency to procrastinate and, thus, keep on track.

I have to admit, I do at times, procrastinate. But I find I’m doing it less, and here’s a tip that I have used, to great success, to nip that procrastination bug in the bud:

Observe closely exactly when you procrastinate. At what hour, during what task, do you put off doing something that otherwise would send you forward to accomplish a goal or help see a dream become reality.

Do you find that you set down to do said task, only to look at the clock and think, “I only have fifteen minutes, so I’d better not start now?”

Does your energy level dip in the afternoon and, thus, it might not be the right time to do your activity (but you plan it then, anyway, and end up putting it off because you don’t feel like it?)

If you can pinpoint when you procrastinate, and you get out of your own way by moving your activity before or after that time next time, you will soon find you can rise above procrastination – and forge ahead!

Blessings for the day,

Maureen
