Procrastination Monkey

This is a great article.

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 🙂

    little something from other sites.
