This is the a big one that I know most of us struggle with and that is…
The avoidance of doing a task which needs to be accomplished. It is the practice of doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, or carrying out less urgent tasks instead of more urgent ones, thus putting off impending tasks to a later time.
Yep. This pretty much sums me up! 😄 I sit on my sofa most nights knowing the kitchen needs cleaning or a load of washing needs to be done and I tell myself “oh I’ll just do it later…” So I go back to watching TV and flick through my social media apps countless times.
Later comes and I’m tired so I go to bed. Then when I wake up in the morning I’m so frustrated with myself that the kitchen is a mess! It’s a vicious cycle that I can’t seem to break. I then make excuses to myself over and over again.
I put my procrastination down to being uninspired. For example, our kitchen was constantly a mess and it didn’t “flow” properly (if that makes any sense at all 😂) and the cupboards were so full with junk. So, I spent a day cleaning and reorganising and then I was finally INSPIRED! I cooked our favourite Buckwheat Risotto from Madeleine Shaw’s recipe book, washed up as I went and then still had time to sit and relax with my hubby.
Being inspired and organised completely stops my procrastination. When I’m inspired I just do, I don’t struggle and make excuses for myself. The things I need to get done just happen naturally.
I love this quote ❤️
I thought I would struggle with this 30 day writing challenge because the sofa seems much more appealing after a long day at work but because I’ve been loving it so much, I just automatically switch on my iMac and start writing my little heart out. It energises me and I love it!
