Thought for the week – 3

Quotations on procrastination abound – I’ve chosen this one:

“Waiting is a trap. There will always be reasons to wait. The truth is, there are only two things in life, reasons and results, and reasons simply don’t count.”

(Dr Robert Anthony)

How often are we guilty of coming with all sorts of reasons/ excuses for not doing something that we know needs to be done? And what tends to happen while we’re procrastinating? It doesn’t go away. Oh, no. It niggles away at us, gradually assuming ever-greater proportions until it’s much bigger than when it started out.

By the time we finally decide something must be done, it’s huge! And then, once we actually tackle it, something really strange happens: It shrinks. It’s like a bully someone stands up to: Full of hot air and not much else.

How about determining for a whole week to eliminate excuses and just do what needs to be done?

And then extending that approach! What effect do you believe that would have in your life and on your business performance over a week, a month, a year?

Why not try it and find out?

"I was very impressed by Linda's determination to help and the constructive, but persistent, manner in which she identified issues and then tried to resolve them. After recent progress I was again reaching a stage where I seemed to be spinning my wheels, and she has given me fresh impetus to start moving forward again."
