Procrastination in Waiting!
“Never allow waiting to become a habit. Live your dreams and take risks. Life is happening”—Unknown
Generally we all ‘wait’ as a way to feel comfortable or justify our procrastination habits. I usually wait for something when I do not want to take action and at times when I fear success or failure. ‘I am waiting for….’ That is the most deadly statement you can utter when asked the tough question, ‘why have you not done this’.
Common statements are; ‘I am waiting to start in the New Year. I am waiting for my turn to lead so I change things. I am waiting for my boss to tell me if I can start on the degree program. I am waiting to start the business as soon as I get enough money.’ We wait, wait and wait for what? Opportunities go by whilst you are waiting for something to happen. I need you to understand that I am not advocating for rebellion, disorder or jumping into things blindly. You need to start taking on challenging assignments that are in the path you have imagined for yourself. Expand your dreams and live them by purposefully and boldly moving from one success to the next. Time is going by and one day in the future you may find yourself wishing you had started living your dreams years ago. There is never a better time or a better situation for you to start living your dreams than today.
Procrastination comes in various modes and waiting for something to happen is one form. Do not wait for some kind of miracle or magical thing to come by so you can begin to do that which makes you happy. You hold the magic wand in your hand so go ahead and do what you need to do. Go out there and make it happen.
