Procrastinating can be fun, sometimes! It may also be a great way to obtain frustration and anxiety whenever we keep postponing what we could be doing today. I manage to fit unscheduled shopping sprees into my already occupied timetable, visit people I havent seen for awhile or give them a quick phone call.
Sometimes Ill even remove the refrigerator, closet, and any closet or room in the homely house – well they need cleaning and sorting ultimately! EASILY had a dog Id take it for a long walk probably, give it a bath maybe, clip its toenails, place ribbons in its hair procrastinating can be fun!

The word procrastinates methods to defer action, or put off (Ill add dawdle and hope it goes away completely as well). Whats interesting is the cras (adv) in procrastinator is the Latin term for tomorrow. To me this snippet of information means procrastinators have been around for a really, really, really long time!
Wonder what strategies they applied back then. When I move my foot, and keep placing something off, behind my brain is a flicker of wish that someone else will part of and do for me what Id rather not (like my accounting paperwork!). There are plenty of, many reasons someone procrastinates and also differing levels.
What is situated beneath is actually a fear of failing or fear of success, have no idea how to start or finish a project, in a continuing state of overwhelm, melancholy, seems pointless, not motivated, or simply maybe laziness maybe. What happens when you know theres something you should be doing instead of cleaning out the refrigerator again really? Maybe an assignments due, bills are overdue, and filing needs to be done urgently because you cant see your desk anymore.
My guess is your stress and stressometer begins rising rapidly. Now would be a pretty good time to sit down and ask yourself some serious questions such as the ones below: 1. How can I better organise myself to get things done? 2. Whats in it for me? What are the pros and negatives of procrastination? 3. Exactly what will I lose easily complete what I have to? Could be stress levels!
4. Exactly what will I gain easily complete what I need to? This may be by means of free time, peacefulness; banish what you have to complete permanently. Maybe your gain will be a special purchase much like presenting yourself with a prize! 5. How important is this to me really?
For example how important is paying your electricity expenses? If you don’t pay your electricity bill your power will be cut off. Alternatively you might have 3 things that need to be done first as a matter of priority. 6. Is the justification I pull my ft due to a who cares attitude? MAY I delegate this project (theres that glimmer of hope again) to another person?
7. Do you know what you ought to do actually? Seriously, maybe the process is unclear about how to start or finish whatever it is that should be done. When youve done that, break down what must be achieved to the tiniest denominator and work the right path up from there.
Sometimes we think about Everything that need to be achieved which in turn overwhelms us. Start really, small and work your way up by taking baby steps really. Be in the present moment totally. A life long habit thats ready for change takes commitment, action, as well as effort and time. By initially answering a few simple questions similar to the ones above will help start that ball rolling towards greater clarity in what gets done and what doesnt, and is this okay.
