Procrastination is just our brains saying, "this really isn’t a priority I am committed to."
When we live with the knowledge that we control our destiny... that life in the past is the way it was and life in the future is the way we decide to create it... we stop thinking about what might be directly in front of us and start moving towards what we want our life, including our work, to be.
If you want to exercise, start by getting off the couch! If you want to create a more financially secure future, start by not spending and begin tracking your expenses. If you need to replace someone on your team, start interviewing.
The difference between what you have and what you want is in your willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve it and to start moving towards your goals, both immediate and long term.
- Think differently about what you want to change
- Start with one thing that moves you closer to what you want to accomplish
- Decide what you will do now that you have been procrastinating around
When is NOW a good time?
