Hello to all procrastinators. You know who you are, so let’s get right to the point. Are you the one who always complains about not having enough time or coming up with all sorts of excuses (having no energy, not enough finances, being too tired, too cold etc.)? I get it. We all detour to these places once in a while. The question is: Is procrastination starting to affect your every daily life?
I’ve realised that doing the work that has been on your mind doesn’t take that long at all. What does take long, however, is thinking about it. So when I, for example, procrastinate on something, let’s say writing an article, I may spend more time and energy having it in the back of my mind rather than investing my time to actually write. The task may only take me half an hour, yet I sometimes waste 2-3 days putting it aside. When I finally get round to it, I’m amazed how quickly I was able to complete it.
Invest your time to things that matter
We all have 24 hours a day and it’s up to us how we spend these 24 hours. Do you invest most of your time on mindless scrolling through social media or do you actually do the things you say you have no time for? This is a time to get honest with yourself. Imagine how much you could accomplish by adjusting your daily habits? There is a huge difference between being busy and being busy doing things that matter. So what can you discard and what can you keep to create more space in your life?
Begin and the results will follow
Take action today. No more excuses, simply go and do it. Remember what we said earlier, the actual work doesn’t take that long, it’s the thinking about it that takes forever and so much space in your busy mind. Make a decision today, that you are going to step out of the procrastinator zone and you will become that action taker you know you are. So, let’s start making those dreams a reality. It’s time to take action.
