Procrastination

“Don’t let perfection become procrastination. Do it now.”Danielle LaPorte

Fear. Often an illusion, a self imposed limit. Wanting perfection yet fearing that the outcome of our endeavor might fall short is the very definition of procrastination.

Yet we all do it.

We all postpone the most important and relevant decisions.

We fail to act because we believe there’s a future when we won’t be afraid. We’ll be better.

Well, there is no future. Not yet.

And you’ll never be better if you don’t start now.

Just do your thing. Don’t think. Just do your thing.

Sounds stupid? Reckless? Naive?

Maybe it is, but the simple truth in this world is that those who wait for the perfect moment get beaten by those who are so stupid and reckless and naive that they don’t.

Enough said.

Let’s get some stuff done.

  1. Love your post. I was afraid of moving to somewhere warm; what would family /friends say etc. I decided to not be afraid and now I am excited for this next adventure!! I am taking the plunge!!

  2. There was a motivational speaker on Steve Harvey show named Eric Thomas who had a take on procrastination. A young female in the audience said she wanted stop procrastinating. And he told her, if I said meet me somewhere and I’ll give you $3 million, you’d be there. He said you’d be there because getting $3 million means something to you, it’s urgent. And I found that to be quit interesting because when something is important we do it now. Something not so important, and we put it off. So sometimes it’s not just fear that keeps us from gmoving forward, it’s the fact that it’s not a priority.

    I’m a firm believer in everything happens for a reason, and here I am again … procrastinating to get closets cleaned, and shit organized … ummm for a while now, and I seriously needed this post, as a kick in the tookus. I am a perfectionist, and if I feel like I can’t get a job done in full, with the time I have, I procrastinate, until I’m beating myself up to get shit done in 24 hours (or so!) lmao It’s a never ending cycle, that I’m really working hard on!! Great post!!

    Another good take on why I must do what I am supposed to do now. Now is my only time and if don’t start today maybe opportunity/s will not again come my way.
