A Little about Procrastination~~~Susie Austin

Never leave that till tomorrow

which you can do today.”

Abraham Lincoln

 

Procrastination is putting off until tomorrow what you could do today. I think we all have been guilty of this at one time or another. It causes stress and usually makes things worse as things keep piling up and do not get finished. How many of us have our minds consumed with stress because of things we have procrastinated about with hopes it may just go away. The plain truth is, it wont go away, however don’t fear there is hope!

 

Here a few tips that will help you overcome procrastination. It will require energy and commitment.

 

Use positive affirmations like, there is no time like the present. Set clear goals, what it is you want to accomplish and a timeline in which you want to finish.

 

Get organized, have a calendar with a To do list, record dates and deadlines and check them off as they are completed. Work on the hardest and most demanding things first. I am a big fan of sticky notes. I find they help me with reminders and work great in most areas, bathroom, car dashboards and in my office.

 

The more we practice our new actions the more likely they will become good habits

 

 

 

Reward yourself, celebrate your accomplishments no matter how big or small pat yourself on the back and move on to bigger and better things.

 

 If you follow these strategies you will be surprised at how fast your momentum will carry you through the day. Make this day your best and don’t forget to enjoy the beauty along the way!
