Procrastination – Just a Bad Habit?

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

Anyone interested in getting better results, becoming more productive and ultimately more successful should probably take an honest look at the problem of procrastination.  Most people think procrastination is just an issue that involves putting things off that can be done later without much of a penalty.

That idea just scratches the surface of the procrastination issue and  is indicative of the denial people have about it.  Truthfully, procrastination is like an addiction because it is the symptom of a thinking problem and like any other addiction, its difficult to break!

The reality is this: Nothing marginalizes results more than procrastination because being productive and getting superior results is about completing tasks and projects in reduced time frames.

Why Not Live Life Like You Mean It?

It is so easy to let Ron do it. Or, in other words, to do it “ LateR on” . Why do today what we can put off till tomorrow? Perhaps this human tendency to sacrifice the important to the urgent is exacerbated today by quantum leaps in our life expectancy. Baby boomers around the world are being blessed by a second adult life. Sixty is the new Thirty and all that.

We googled “life expectancy” and found a life expectancy calculator at livingto100.com. For $5 I learned I will live to be 97. Wow, 60 really is the new 30. Who knows how accurate this is, but the doctor on the site is the medical advisor to a Sky One television show in Britain called Change the Day You Die. Interesting.

It started innocently enough.  I’d been working longer hours, spending more time at the computer, eating the wrong stuff on the run and not taking the time to exercise.  When I called my best friend and told him I was certain someone was shrinking my underpants in the middle of the night, I finally faced the fact that I had to do something about it.  I had gained weight and it was no longer something I could ignore.

Maybe some of you can relate to this.
