As of today, there are 44 weeks left in the year 😮💨
Now, let's talk about procrastination. It's a habit that I’m constantly guilty of doing, and it's easy to fall into the trap of putting things off until the last minute. But the truth is, procrastination is the enemy of creativity, progress and success.
When we procrastinate, we waste time and energy that could be put towards achieving our goals. We delay important tasks, and create unnecessary stress for ourselves. Procrastination is not a permanent condition. It's a habit that can be changed with effort and determination.
Take a moment to think about the tasks or projects that you've been putting off. Break down your tasks into smaller, manageable steps. Small wins create big momentum. Every small step forward counts. Don't wait for the perfect time or conditions to start working towards your goals. Just take that first step, and then another, and another.
And when you feel tempted to procrastinate, remind yourself of why you started in the first place. Think about the sense of accomplishment and satisfaction you'll feel when you've achieved your goals.
So, don't let procrastination hold you back. Take action today, and make the most of the time you have left this year. You can do this!
If you’re not in the mood to killing your procrastination, here’s a bunch of links and resources I came across the internet this past month.
What are some interesting or inspiring stuff that you have found on the internet? Drop some links in the comments. I’d love to procrastinate and get inspired :)
