WOMEN in RECOVERY – Procrastination

Procrastination

As you continue the journey of rediscovering your Divine nature, we surround you with our love and blessings.

Your success will come from facing your challenges when they arise and discovering new paradigm solutions. You will have opportunities to pinpoint and resolve many longstanding issues during this cycle. The key here is staying in the present and addressing what is there, when it is in front of you.

This means avoiding the temptation to ‘procrastinate‘.

It means developing more self-trust and more in-the-moment connection with your inner wisdom.

Examine the amount of time procrastinating.

You may be shocked by the time wasted in front of the television.

Learn Self-Discipline

Examine the effect. What lies ahead?
  • Chances are, you will benefit from facing the task head on.
Set reasonable goals. Allow time to complete things.
  • Set time aside for the unexpected.
Create a new habit. You may not want to do your work right now, but you can still be thinking about how to do it more quickly and efficiently.
  • Scan through your work.
  • Decide how you will proceed while watching television.
  • Give yourself a time limit. Watch television for a half hour, then initiate the first few steps.
Approach each task in small intervals. This may seem less daunting.
  • A half hour or one hour may be a reasonable amount of time to concentrate before taking a break.
  • Divide a task over a week, month or several hours.

Just get started. Going from doing nothing to doing something is often the hardest part.

  • Imagine how good you will feel when everything is off your mind.
  • It takes about 15 minutes after starting to become engaged. Good news! .. Once you’ve reached this level of engagement, you will see that it is hard to stop!
  • Sit down, block out any distractions (all electronics!), and dive in!

Reward yourself along the way. The reward that lies ahead may not be enough to motivate you now.

  • Reward yourself with a break, a movie or some kind of treat as you progress.

Stay focused. Say “no” to picking up the guitar, playing a DVD or texting your friends.

  • Build confidence in your ability to make choices.

Don’t expect perfection. No one is perfect.

  • It’s better to try your best than do nothing at all.
  • You may procrastinate in order to give yourself an excuse for a subpar performance. This cycle is self-defeating.

Remember that an imperfect job done today, is always superior to the perfect job delayed indefinitely.

This is Your Life, to make with the dream that you dream happen; don’t let life pass you by….

You are Worthy of the life you dream!

Take Action!
