Do you every feel like you need help overcoming procrastination? If so, you are DEFINITELY not alone!
Please believe me when I tell you that this particular little demon has been one that I have extensive personal experience with. 🙂 My dad has also admitted to me that he procrastinates. Sometimes we joke around about it, “Never put off today what you can put off tomorrow,” or, “Seize the day, tomorrow.”
I love the tagline at www.Procrastinators.org – “Productivity is Overrated.”
But while overcoming procrastination may not be a serious issue for some – it is practically crippling for others.
Especially for those who need to produce results on deadlines, for anyone who has to reach sales or productivity quotas, for students who need to finish their homework, for the parent who promised to bake cookies for the school event, for those who are self employed … you get the idea. It can be an obstacle for just about anyone.
Sometimes, it doesn’t really seem like procrastination is all that harmful (especially when people joke about it so much…).
But consider, for a moment, being the parents who put off baking the cookies for their kids’ school event. What kind of message are the parents sending the kids?
Or, how about the self-employed entrepreneur? If you happen to be self-employed – whether it’s in a bricks and mortar business or in an internet based marketing business – you may have heard the old saying:
“The great thing about being self-employed is that no one tells you what to do. The bad thing about being self-employed is that no one tells you what to do.”
So, as it turns out, overcoming procrastination is actually rather important, isn’t it?
Again, I’m not saying that the occasional bout is anything to worry about – but if it starts getting in the way of seeing positive results in your life, guess what? Then it’s a problem or obstacle that needs to be addressed.
I came up with a couple of ideas about overcoming procrastination, and I have posted the article right here on my blog!
This is a technique I have used myself (Remember… I have needed to really work on overcoming procrastination myself !)
