Dealing with Procrastination .... Tomorrow

I have an item on my to-do list that has been the number one priority for 6 weeks. Do you have one of those?

DEFINITION: Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time, sometimes to the "last minute" before the deadline.

Perhaps that is my issue - I have no deadline. No one in the entire world cares if I get this thing DONE or not. I am not saying that I never procrastinate things that have a deadline imposed by others, but I always get those things done when they need to be done.

Why am I making me and my own deadline unimportant?

Why is it okay to disappoint myself?

What excuses am I inventing about why this can wait?

What would getting started look like?

What first step would make it easier to keep moving?

What am I willing to say no to, so that I can say yes to this?

I have my homework for tonight - lots of questions to answer. Maybe I will just wait and answer those tomorrow :-)
