Procrastinating on Things we WANT to Do??
Posted October 14, 2008on:
I’ve had this habit for a long time. I realized, back in my “career” days, that I would put off projects and tasks that I enjoyed doing, thinking I should do the most unpleasant things on my list first – eat the frog and all that.
What invariably happens is that the project I was looking forward to gets pushed so far down the priority list that by the time I get to it, I’m rushed for time and stressed – and guess what? I don’t enjoy it anymore.
I felt this coming on last week when I had two birthday presents to wrap for weekend parties. I normally love to wrap – until we’re trying to get out the door. So . . . on Friday morning, when I had time and enthusiasm, I got out the supplies and wrapped those gifts ahead of time. So much better.
