Procrastination is the thief of time

Everyone has been afflicted by procrastination at one time or another – that nagging menace that compels us to put things off for another day, another time. For some people this is a persistent problem, and for others it pops up in only select areas of their lives.

The result, though, is the same for everyone: increased anxiety, wasted time, poor performance, missed opportunities, guilt, excusing ourselves and avoiding people who depend on us.  Bottom line: it cause suffering for many people.

What are some common excuses?

  1. Putting the blame elsewhere.
  2. Letting emotions interfere with productivity.
  3. Setting up roadblocks
  4. Being perfect – or nothing at all

Procrastination is a serious problem. It can undermine our sense of well being and prevent us from experiencing the full potential of our lives. A portion of our time is spent pleasurably and a portion is spent on tasks we may not particularly enjoy. Such is the nature of life .To avoid the unpleasurable is, unfortunately, to compromise the pleasurable. The person who is emotionally healthy is one who is familiar with and can tolerate the ups and downs, the highs and lows, and light and dark of life. Living “completely” entails embracing our responsibilities, relishing our pleasure, and appreciating our time.

“Procrastination is the thief of time”

Here are some valuable tips for overcoming procrastination:

  1. Examine your “shoulds” and change it to “wants” and then assume responsibility.
  2. Look at your excuses rationally.
  3. Set priorities and break your tasks down into smaller pieces.
  4. Get organized
  5. Reward yourself when you accomplish a small goal.

Procrastination is such an ingrained pattern that it may seem impossible to change it.

While these tips are effective for many, it may help others to get help from a PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COACH like myself in order to make you accountable and move you forward in your life.
