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 :)

I give up. And you should too. What should we give up?  Taking to heart any set advice from the media and/or medical association.  Pretty extreme statement right ? Well, hear me out.  I am annoyed – and I’m sure … Continue reading

Closet Organizing Time!

Image

 

It’s cold out. It’s grey out. The Weather Channel is calling for another foot of snow. Yuck. So what to do during this frigid winter season? Let’s stay indoors and… organize !!

If you’re like me, then you know exactly what I see when I look at my closet and drawers.

I wouldn’t necessarily say that  I’m a pack rat or a hoarder, but I tend to hold on to things for a long time. A VERY long time.  Example: a shiny black velvet mini tube top worn to nightclubs 20 years ago, a winter cotillion dress from my first freshman year high school dance,  summer flip-flops, winter boots, seemingly more shoes than Imelda Marcos ever owned, and clothes in a wide size range from size 4 to size 16, small to extra-large (my never-ending weight-loss wishes haven’t exactly manifested themselves into a successful physical form …yet!).

For some of the items, there is obviously a sentimental attachment (as I don’t think I’ll be baring my midriff – especially in this weather –  any time in the near future)  :)   However, considering I live in a teeny tiny Manhattan studio.. well, sometimes it’s good to purge, to donate, to try to organize.

Here, ahead of the annual “Spring Cleaning”  (way ahead … because you know the 15th snowstorm of 2014 is on the way!)  is this great article I wanted to share.  We may as well organize now .. this way we can emerge in the spring, with the nice weather, purged of all the things we no longer use .. and then be ready to enjoy the summer!

Have a great week everyone!
