Fight Procrastination Day

Wednesday is Fight Procrastination Day. There are so many things that need your attention, how do you decide what to do? You are constantly resetting priorities, based on your energy level, skills, beliefs and experience.

I have found that a lot of my clients get excited when starting something new, but lose interest before they finish. Sometimes you make a decision by not taking any action at all. If you fail to complete a project or follow up on an activity, maybe you just need to let it go.

If you believe that a task is going to take a long time, you might set it aside until you “find the time.” Unfortunately, many projects fade away because that “found time” never materializes. If you really want to do something, you need to put it in your schedule so that it happens. This is true of tasks, errands, even self-care.

If you are procrastinating about a task, think about how much it means to you. If it doesn’t add value to your life, consider doing away with it. If, however, it’s something you need to do for work, your health, your family or your happiness, start by starting. Take a small step toward completion and continue to take small steps, keeping the project at the top of your priority list until you finish.
