The only cure for procrastination is action. Go beyond wishing, dreaming, considering, debating the options and get busy making it happen.
Yes, it’s going to be a little uncomfortable, it’s going to involve effort, it’s going to require commitment, and you’re going to run into difficult challenges. So ask yourself — do you intend to make it happen or would you rather put it off again and again so that it never gets done?
What gets done is what gets done now. In a little while, in a couple of weeks, in a few years, when you get around to it — these “somedays” never do come.
It’s helpful to substitute the word “never” for someday, for that will force you to confront the issue. Give yourself the choice between doing it now or doing it never, and you’ll be much more likely to do it now, if it’s truly important to you.
This moment right now is loaded with great value. You can choose to take action, and make that value your own, or you can choose to do nothing and forever leave this moment’s bountiful treasure behind.
Decide to accept the tremendous opportunity that is already available to you. Let go of the excuses, and make this the moment you jump into real, effective, purposeful action.

Gee, Ralph must have been peeking in my windows. It’s not even 6 am yet and already I am procrastinating, putting off what I really need to do today.
Okay, Ralph, action it is. Just for today I will take action rather than procrastinate….dang it. 😀September 25, 2013 at 10:35 am#163555AnonymousInactive
