Good day Pearls,
It’s the Summer Time! The dreariness of the Winter has rolled on away, and now we are ready to see the sun.
I want to be honest with you today. I have been on a mission to get my goals completed, and I can see the finish line. In this work, I identified deadweight situations that just refused to shake me loose until recently. Yet, here I am...revitalized and excited about what the exciting new season will bring me. Pearls, it’s great when you can be you unapologetically.
Being me is actually one of the most satisfying experiences I have ever had in my life. Even though it can intimidate others when you are unapologetic about being yourself, I have learned not to be so quick to dim my shine just because someone can’t handle the focus. But there is also a matter of my being that can negatively affect my progress. The past 19 months have taught me that one true thing is that procrastination is my kryptonite. It can cripple all of my efforts if I allow it. I know that I am not alone in this fight to stop putting things off. This monster subverts the best-laid plans to tackle any goal.
I considered my own behavior towards a significant goal with a 9-month deadline (9 months of the 19 set initially). What I learned about myself and the effects of procrastination was enlightening. Always looking to share with my clan, I knew that I should pass this information and insight to my village. Pearl, if you are looking to beat your Procrastination Troll, here is a Ted Talk from Tim Urban, a co-creator at Wait But Why? (check it out). He is spot on with his characterization of procrastinating behavior. I hope this helps you with your procrastination monster. ***I do not own the rights to this video.
