How easy it is to avoid things like cleaning the bathroom with daydreams of that time you polished off a whole dozen donuts, or the sudden need to organize your shoe collection, or why no one talks the “gersebermps” talk anymore, or… Well, on September 6, those mindless distractions come to an abrupt end for Fight Procrastination Day. Yes, the time is long overdue to stop putting things off and just do them! Sure, it’s easy to accomplish a simple task, but when there’s a list of simple tasks just waiting, it can be easy to get discouraged or, let’s admit it, lazy. The key to stop procrastinating is to maintain motivation through a few steps of contemplation, change, and action!
If you’re the kind of person who needs reminders, try something like a No’ Pad Ceramic Pad, a reusable notepad with a dry erase marker that easily wipes away tasks that you’ve completed. If you’re on the go, a Secret Keyring will hold a note or to-do list in a metal keyring that unscrews to reveal a hidden note holder.
So what are you waiting for? Just remember: the more time you put towards avoiding something is time you can spend actually doing what you want to do, i.e., without regrets or guilt. We live in an age of immediate gratification, and procrastination goes hand in hand with this. But when you actually spend the time doing what needs to be done, you will find that your free time afterwards feels so much more worth it! It all starts with that first step, so on Fight Procrastination Day, stop procrastinating, go do stuff, and you might find that feeling like a go-getter actually suits you better!
