As some of you know, I am a writer, videographer, full-time employee, wife, mother, and dog owner. I am, in other words, VERY busy nearly all the time. It irks me that I have so little time and spend even more of it beating myself up about not getting something done due to lack of time.
Yesterday, I felt like it wasn’t lack of time, but procrastination that was foiling all my plans.
Do you ever feel like that? Well, you are not alone and today I am here to offer three tips for you to beat that old bad boy, Procrastination.
First, what is procrastination? The Internet says: the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time, sometimes to the “last minute” before a deadline.
hmm… yep. Sounds like me. I do this. I put stuff off. I like to think it is because of time constraints but I think sometimes it is because I would RATHER sit my butt on the couch and watch a mindless movie.
3 Tips for Beating Procrastination
Hope this helps you. I am going to call this rather long blog post my writing for today. It is almost two whole pages so…cannot say I procrastinated my word count, right?
