May: Making Up for Lost Time
May the Fourth be with you! Sorry, I couldn’t resist, since my hubby was watching a Myth Buster episode on Star Wars stunts – and we watched the Big Bang Theory episode about Star Wars Day last Thursday (with the pun on May the Force/Fourth be with you!)
Anyway, as I mentioned in yesterday’s post about May Expectations, I am going to take at least this week to make up for lost time in completing the series I started last August (2013) on procrastination. This quote really expresses it well…
Any progress, even a baby step, is better than no forward movement. So to begin making progress again in this blog with the goal of completing this series I began, I wanted to cover a brief overview in today’s post of what I originally started to discuss on the topic of Preventing Procrastination, Prizing Prioritizing, and Pursuing Purpose.
So as a reminder, what do you think of when you hear the word procrastination? Courtesy of the Free Online Dictionary, the definition of procrastination is “To put off doing something, especially out of habitual carelessness or laziness” and “To postpone or delay needlessly.” OUCH.
I would invite those who are interested and would like to read this series from the beginning to refer back to these posts; here are the titles and links:
I hope the series so far has been or will be a blessing to those who take time to read the posts. I just wanted to remind people of this:
This series is a work in progress; it is also a bit of a personal journey, combining a confession of a recognized character flaw and ongoing struggle, with a strategy to overcome this weakness. It is my hope that by sharing these sometimes painful revelations, others who stop by to read will find some inspiration of their own to overcome their own areas of procrastination or other character flaws.
So who’s with me? Do you also struggle with procrastination or are you one of those who is blessed with a gift to manage your time wisely? Please share your tips! I look forward to finishing this series!
