Flip The Switch
I tend to procrastinate. I can start my day with the best of intentions to get important tasks done, but I soon find myself detouring from the path. I end up filling my hours with busyness and errands. I know the most important things I need to do, and the ones that will bring me ultimate happiness; but I tend to put the more pressing things first, such as chores, errands, phone calls, etc.
I procrastinated about writing this article, for example. I knew what I wanted to say, but found excuses about writing it down on paper. I seemed to be too busy with less important tasks, so it didn’t get done. People are usually aware of those times when they’re procrastinating, but they can’t seem to flip the switch. This can lead to all kinds of self defeating thoughts and feelings of guilt, eventually causing depression.
When we are procrastinating, it’s usually over the things that will make our lives better. Not doing them usually results in unpleasant consequences. What are you procrastinating on today? It’s time to FLIP THE SWITCH and get busy!
