Human laziness has always bugged me.
Watching inaction in the face of desired outcomes irritates me.
Observing the lack of personal initiative generates in me, some of the most negative feelings I ever experience.
Doing PLANNED nothing can be pretty nice. Doing nothing when there is another plan is folly.
Procrastination is in full force when you find yourself doing the current 7th most important thing on your Do It Today List.
I don’t procrastinate often. OK, fine… almost never.
But there are moments when it seems an unseen force is blocking your way to doing that which you KNOW you need to be doing.
THIS happens to me a few times each year.
Whether I will actually procrastinate is a different thing. That’s the action/inaction. No, I’m just talking about that FEELING that you get when you do not feel compelled to be doing #1, #2, #3 on your list.
It usually happens to me in the summer.
My brain tells me it’s fatigued. My chest feels heavy. My mind wants to stop when it knows there is information to process and projects to complete.
It whines and grumbles when “it knows” full well that if it keeps spinning, it stays healthy. If it stops spinning…it probably won’t get moving again.
There are basically two kinds of people in the world that we are living in – those that are productive, and those who procrastinate.
Today, more than ever, procrastination is a HUGE issue. I’ve never seen people blow so many opportunities as I have the last few years. Procrastination often yields to full blown laziness and semi-permanent failure. It’s scary!
When opportunity comes along, it doesn’t come looking JUST for you. It comes and you either seize it or someone else does.
It’s as simple as that.
Maybe that is not life’s greatest lesson. But it’s in the Top Ten.
Businesses of all sizes are looking for good people who can maximize their time and produce REAL results.
Entrepreneurs and salespeople are looking for those results from themselves of course, in addition to those who work with them.
In business, procrastinators are useless….and you do not let yourself ever fall victim to the whiney brain.
Can YOU change from YOUR “default?” i.e. how do YOU get to YOUR Mars?
