2014 in review – THANK YOU!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Thank you to all of my readers!

This was a most exciting report to read, (aren’t stats always more fun to read than calculate!? Ha!).

Anyway,  I just want to say THANK YOU.  I appreciate you stopping by this site, whether to read just one post or all of of them…..

The most thrilling statistic in this report, which was so surprising,  (and deeply humbling!)) was the fact that you, (my readers!) hail from 84 different countries and yet, somehow, found and clicked on martinisandbonbons.com to read a post!! WOW!!!  I’ve gone global!!!!  That put the perfect finish to 2014!

From NYC –  I wish you all a HAPPY and HEALTHY NEW YEAR wherever you may be!

Yours truly,

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,900 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 32 trips to carry that many people.

Procrastination Monkey

This is a great article.

http://waitbutwhy.com/2013/10/why-procrastinators-procrastinate.html

Now, I don’t know about you, but I EXCEL at procrastination. In fact, I’ve been called a “great time-wasting engineer”.   Terrible.  

The problem can be traced back to that strange, mysterious thing which efficient people call the  “step-by-step process”.   Herein lies the issue.  For me, that phrase translates to “does not compute, does not compute, does not compute”.  lol.

I believe we procrastinators do, in fact envision a most glorious, successful, completed end-goal of whatever it is we desire….and really WANT it! But it’s just the GETTING there that seems insurmountable.  I start a million things, but rarely do I finish them – even though I have  the best intentions and dream of reaching my  goals.  Dreaming. That’s another problem.

Dreaming  and wanting does not equal DOING.

A senior manager once gave me a great bit of advice.  He said what worked for him was writing out this single phrase on an index card or Post-it note.  Place it where you will see it everyday: your desk, your bathroom mirror, your computer, anywhere. It helps jumpstart oneself into action.

This is what you write :   WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

A combination of using that note, along with the advice from the article should help –  and if you don’t procrastinate in reading the article – you might find it helpful as well!   Best of luck to all my fellow procrastinators out there!!

WE CAN DO IT !!  Have faith :)
