We know rainbows are beautiful. In fact, I have to share this. I didn’t put this in my book and I’m sharing this for the first time. The most gorgeous rainbow I have ever seen in my life happened to be on the day of Chris’ mother’s funeral. It was an end-to-end rainbow as bright […]

Rainbows and childhood

18 Feb, 2015 , ,

I love rainbows. I think they’re beautiful and when I was a kid, I was obsessed with them and I would literally just draw them on everything with my crayons. I just loved all the colors. I always put a pot of gold at the end of it. I think all little girls love rainbows […]

Life can change quickly

12 Feb, 2015 , ,

I never consciously thought to myself that I was waiting, and it’s not like I was sitting around waiting for a fairy Godmother with a magical wand to come hit me over the head and say, “Okay, now you’re ready. Now you can start writing.” It wasn’t like that, of course, and it’s not that […]

Live your life now!

I want to share a story. If you’ve read my book, you know the story about Tom, and I’ve talked to some of you about this already in my speeches. This story hits home and I want you to really take to heart the process that this person and this family went through, because I […]

I’m very, very big on taking action now. What’s the point of having a goal and a dream and a desire for something if you never get around to accomplishing it. So, I am so convinced that if you just take action, start little by little but take that action now, then you can accomplish […]

Taking Action

24 Jan, 2015 , , , ,

Taking Action. This is probably the most important step out of anything that I teach about, because if you don’t do anything with it, it doesn’t do you a bit of good. So, if you have ever set a goal that you haven’t accomplished, or you know what you want in life but you’re not […]

A Means To An End

Once you’ve identified what’s holding you back, then it’s time to practice discipline and motivation. Discipline and motivation are so vital to overcoming procrastination. If you think of anyone you consider to be really successful, and if you ask them how they manage to continuously work on their goals and how they never stop until […]

what can we do about it?

15 Jan, 2015 ,

“So, Michelle, I know you’ve told us all the things that procrastinators do, but what can we do about it?” Well, I talk a lot about this in my book, “Busy Being Busy” and I do suggest that you take a closer look at what might be causing it. There may be some real legitimate […]

Real procrastinators tell themselves five lies

6 Jan, 2015

it’s easy to tell whether you’re a real procrastinator, and this comes from a study done by the psychology professors from DePaul University, and I love this. Real procrastinators tell themselves five lies, and I want you to listen to see if you fit into any of these five lies. Number one, real procrastinators overestimate […]

Procastinators are made

27 Dec, 2014

procrastinators we know, they’re not born, they’re made. That’s the good news and the bad news. The good news is it’s a learned response, and what’s learned can be definitely be unlearned. The bad news is that while it’s possible to change, it takes a lot of energy, and you don’t necessarily feel transformed right […]

Not enjoying what you do?

20 Dec, 2014 , , , , ,

People may procrastinate because they’re doing things they don’t enjoy. While we all have to do these mundane things like the dishes or go grocery shopping, life is a lot more enjoyable if we have a meaningful career or a meaningful passion. This is why I am so passionate about you finding your passion, because […]

don’t beat yourself up

13 Dec, 2014 , , , , , , ,

don’t beat yourself up about past procrastination. There are some people that have totally taken the past and made that their future, meaning they made some bad choices. They procrastinated. Maybe they lost an opportunity because they didn’t take action, and they’re convinced they’re horrible because they procrastinated. You have to really forgive yourself.You’re going […]

Just Do It

6 Dec, 2014 ,

We’ve all heard the slogan just do it from Nike. It’s been around for so long. But, if you work on your time, your attitude about the job will change. Once you start, it won’t seem so bad. And, there’s a lot of research on that, and that is all based on goals. There is […]

Deal with Distractions

28 Nov, 2014

We all know that distractions are everywhere. With the way things are today, it feels really good to wake up in the morning, go to your email or maybe go to Facebook. We discount the future gains, meaning we want the immediate reward when given the choice between now or later. So, it probably feels […]
