You know what you need to do. You know the reasons behind why you need to do something. If you're anything like me, you have one small problem. You just can't seem to get moving. I knew yesterday the post I wanted to do today. "First thing in the morning" I told myself. The computer goes on, I check the email, the different sites I sell on and then I turn on my Twitter account and open a page for my blog. Needless to say, two hours later, I am now writing the post. Procrastination for sure!
We all put things off...at least I think most people do. I think it is an innate part of us. Some of us may be chronic procrastinators or maybe we just feel overwhelmed and paralyzed by the task at hand. For me, I kind of like the thrill..if you can call it a thrill...of coming within an nth of the deadline. Whatever the task, it sits and gathers dust. So I've decided to get an inoculation and see if I can't get the mojo flow back into a rhythm. I'm making a list..to do every morning, I'm going to use my most productive morning hours and not twitter them away (no offense twitter, but you can be addictive and time consuming as I have been told), tell the DH my plans for the day...he'll keep me in check and lastly, try to be more decisive.
Sounds like a plan. I'm thinking I need to get my thrills elsewhere. Do you procrastinate?
