Most days there is just far too much to get done. If only there were more hours in the day!!
You know you have to get started on some really boring tasks but once again the day goes by and they just don’t get done.
The art of procrastination is alive and well. The longer the task is put off the more it seems to resemble something like a load and the load seems to get heavier and heavier the more you think about making a start. Where is the load inside you? Close your eyes for a moment and imagine being able to lift it out and hold it in your hand (or hands if it’s very big!) With this load in your hand, what does it look like? What colour is it? What is the texture? How big is it? Does it make any sound? Can you make it smaller, much smaller; softer; lighter colour; lighter in itself?
Can you make it small enough to blow it away?
OK now tell yourself it’s time to decide on the very first step of the task you are delaying.
Perhaps some tips to add to your time management skills could also be useful?
By the way if you haven’t got a kindle ‘More time for you now is available as a printed book too
