Kicking Procrastination!

Since I seem to be experiencing many new seasons in my life at this time, I decided to turn a new page.  I am currently taking a course entitled Uninstalling Procrastination (an online course by Shelby-LittleCoffeeFox).  I have been very interested in her story describing how she was able to turn around her life goals and experiences by studying and successfully diminishing the role of procrastination in her life.  I was particularly struck by Shelby suggesting that putting things off only creates constant feelings of impending doom for us and increases  our stress and anxiety about tasks that are expected to be accomplished by a certain date.  I have always been a person who demonstrates great spurts of working effectively and efficiently on tasks and projects, for a specified period of time.  However, I have been known to justify procrastinating on certain “not-so-loved” tasks to the point of increasing my stress levels and ending up ultimately completing the tasks under immense deadline pressures.  Shelby’s course is very worthwhile and I discovered that I am not too old to change my habits.  After completing Module I of the course, I woke up this morning and accomplished four necessary errand/tasks prior to 11:00 a.m.  I rewarded myself with a trip to an antique store open house, followed by attending to two bill challenges I needed to take care of immediately.  A productive, successful day spurred on by Shelby’s course.  Thank you, Shelby.  I am eager to learn more!
