|Forward to a Friend|
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Yes, it’s really June! Time to plan summer vacations (it’s never too late!), enjoy the outdoors, time with friends and start up projects that have been on the back burner. We all procrastinate; acknowledgement of being in this mode is the first step in moving forward. Procrastination is often fear based and manifests itself through negative statements such as:
“not the right time now”
“why even bother...can happen (worst case scenario).”
Perhaps the act of “non-doing” is an indication that the idea needs to be tossed.
Here are some tips to Reverse Procrastination:
Step back and reframe the situation; visualize the action as a positive outcome.
Outline the steps needed to complete the project.
Create realistic timelines.
Allow new ideas to “percolate”.
Just do it!
