“While snow the window-panes bedim,
The fire curls up a sunny charm,
Where, creaming o’er the pitcher’s rim,
The flowering ale is set to warm;
Mirth, full of joy as summer bees,
Sits there, its pleasures to impart,
And children, ‘tween their parent’s knees,
Sing scraps of carols o’er by heart.”
John Clare, December

“Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.”
— Don Marquis
Most of us struggle with procrastination — the ‘I’ll do it later’ syndrome. If this is one of your key time wasters, take time to become more aware of your behaviour.
Identify what you are procrastinating.
Identify why you have not done these things. Seek out your deepest reason.
Is there a fear underlying your reason? There is for most people.
We typically procrastinate because of unclear goals, lack of information and/or skills, fear of moving into new territory, fear of failure or success, feeling overwhelmed, lack of time due to over-commitments, poor timing, and general disorganization.
“Much of the stress that people feel doesn’t come from having too much to do. It comes from not finishing what they started.”
— David Allen
And, just for fun: “The best labor saving device is doing it tomorrow.”
