So I have officially banned myself from writing any blogs until after Nov 13th. I will be hosting a Woman’s Retreat Nov 13th, and there is still quite a bit of work that I have to do to get ready for this event. At the same time I have a nagging voice in my head telling me that I need to post an update on my blog. I have to post an update about my ‘Healthier eating… Healthier me’ and I have also had a few great blog ideas that I’ve begun writing that I want to finish up and post… BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT the fact is that preparing for the retreat needs to take precedence over updating my blog.
Procrastination is a tricky little thing, and I know myself well enough to know that as committed as I am to this blog; if I am not careful it could become a distraction from the other ‘more’ important things in my life (i.e. sleep, work, family time etc.) so I’ve got to make a point not to mis-prioritise (is that a word?!?!? well it is a word in this blog.. lol).
How I know that procrastination is trying to woo me is when I find myself in the midst of a difficult task… and that annoying voice comes in my head and says… ‘oh.. didn’t you need to google this that or the other’… or I come up with a funny status update for facebook… or I feel an overwhelmingly strong need to put on a load of laundry. Then what will inevitably happen is I do that thing… and become distracted, get off task of what I should have been working on in the first place. Procrastination is the answer to an uncomfortable feeling/task, so instead of dealing with the difficult thing we do something else. Kinda like what I’m doing right now… lol …. see in my head I want to keep typing more about procrastination but more than that… I’m avoiding what the work I SHOULD BE DOING!!! So I’m going to just end this blog right here, hit publish and will come back to the procrastination discussion AFTER THE 13TH OF THE MONTH!!!!
WISH ME LUCK!!!!!!
