Procrastination. It steals our time, our motivation and our results, leaving us with nothing to show but stalled plans and dreams. Get over it and get it over with. Whether it's a project or a task, start today - and put procrastination behind you.
Lara hates to iron, so she rarely does it. Because she rarely irons, once a month, she has to spend almost an entire day catching up on it. As you can imagine, that one day is not a happy day for her.
Steve does not enjoy going through his mail. He waits all week to begin looking through it and often falls way behind. This procrastination has been the cause of late payments on his bills, missed invitations and a kitchen table full of clutter.
One way to stop procrastinating on a dreaded task is to do it as soon as you wake up in the morning.
For instance, Lara could iron one article of clothing each and every morning. It will only take a few minutes to iron one blouse or one pair of pants each morning, and eventually she will catch up.
Steve could go through his mail--just one day's worth-- each day with his morning coffee. As long as it's just the mail from yesterday, it shouldn't take more than five minutes tops.
Do that dreaded task as soon as you wake up, and do it each day so that you can complete it in a flash. When that task is complete, you can be glad it's done with!
