Are there goals in your life that you want to achieve? Yet, you continually find yourself delaying or putting off any effort to make your goals a reality? You might find yourself saying, “I’ll do it next week” or “I don’t have enough time”. This is the barrier of procrastination and it can be a huge inhibitor in your life.
Overcoming procrastination is often the first step towards accomplishing your goals. Consider the following recommendations to remove this barrier:
• Identify the reason for delay (insufficient time, insufficient money, lack of resources, fear of failure, etc.)
• Brainstorm ways to remove the barrier. This process could involve getting insight from friends or associates.
• Set aside specific days and times to work towards your goal, even if it’s only 30 minutes a day. Small efforts can result in major accomplishments over time.
• Establish accountability partners to encourage and motivate you to reach your goal.
“Procrastination usually results in sorrowful regret.” ~Ida Scott Taylor
