Procrastination



I am a true blue, through and through, PROCRASTINATOR.

Sometimes I refer to it as Fiddle Farting.

Either way. I am one or I do it.

TO.A.FAULT.

I procrastinate exercise. I procrastinate preparing a talk (I speak at a New Beginnings this Sunday). I procrastinate waking up. I procrastinate getting ready for the day.

I procrastinate... pretty much everything.

Maybe that's why this quote hit so close to home.

I find it to be true. With every fiber of my being.

"Procrastination may seem the easy way, as it momentarily removes the
effort required to accomplish something of value. Ironically, in time,
procrastination produces a heavy burden laced with guilt and a hollow lack
of satisfaction. Temporal and, even more importantly, spiritual goals will
not be achieved by procrastination."
 
-- Elder Donald L. Hallstrom,"Do It Now"

There are goals I have set for myself that I am not achieving because of my procrastination. I often ask myself what I am afraid of. Why wont I just jump in and do it (whatever it is I am dealing with at the moment)?

Am I alone here?

What works for you?!

How have you battled and won against procrastination?
