No surprise there!
I’ve done my own survey and asked people why they don’t do what they say they want to do. I was surprised that the #1 answer was…………
I DON’T HAVE TIME!
This has been my excuse and I could point to my schedule to prove to myself (and everyone else) why it is true. I just didn’t think it would be such a common excuse. The funny thing is (and it’s not really funny at all), I always find the time for things that are important to me.
My ‘lack of time’ excuse is generally related to starting something new. Or continuing something old, like this newsletter, for example. This is a sample of the things I want to start or complete but don’t seem to find the time:
And this is just a partial list. Part of the problem is that these are just ‘to-do’s’ at the moment and I haven’t set up any specific goals related to this nor any small action steps. So, these stay in the realm of unfinished business and take up mental energy. Can you spell p.r.o.c.r.a.s.t.i.n.a.t.i.o.n?
And nothing kills dreams, productivity, or self-esteem as fast as procrastination.
What about you? What promises do you break to yourself? What have you been putting off but can’t quite bring yourself to take off of your list? When do you give the excuse that there isn’t enough time?
Let’s talk about what you are facing and where you are procrastinating.

Here is ONE BIG thing that will boost your energy and help you eliminate the dragon of procrastination. Are you ready?
.......... Stop Complaining
What? Surely that can’t be my number one tip! What’s up with that?
Complaining takes up a lot of energy AND it keeps our challenges, frustrations, and problems in the forefront of our mind. We invite others to complain with us and agree with us. And complaining depletes our energy.
Stop complaining = start taking responsibility. When we take responsibility, we aren’t a victim of time or talent or money (or anything else for that matter) and we get to choose what we want to do. There is a different energy to the feeling of ‘choosing’ to do something instead of ‘having’ to do something.
Try it now. Get into the feeling of ‘choosing’ instead of ‘having’. It’s like the difference of joy instead of drudgery. If we have two choices and one is joyful and uplifting and the other is dreadful and depleting, which one are you going to do?
And joy leads to momentum, which is the antidote to procrastination.
Complaining keeps our mind in the basement where life is a challenge to get through and where fulfillment is some far away desire.
