Don't Let Procrastination Be Your Downfall
I've been reading a lot of posts about procrastination lately. I've also been doing some procrastination myself. I have spent hours the last few days trying to catch up on my notifications, and I've used that to rationalize not writing content.
I've noticed some other people here in the WA community seem to struggle with the same problem from time to time, because I keep coming across posts about procrastination, and I'm wondering why.
This is a "job" that we all love so much; it excites us. We believe in it. We know what we are required to do to achieve our dreams here. So what stops us?
It occurred to me that as much as I love WA, there are certain tasks required of me - certain things I should do if I want to achieve my dreams. After awhile those "shoulds" start to drag me down, and I start to resent them. I put them off because I don't want to be controlled by them. I think I can take back control by ignoring the "shoulds".
I need to remind myself that there is nothing here that I am required to do. But there is a lot here that will help me achieve my dreams if I choose to do it. It is my choice to follow the lessons and complete the tasks. The end result will be worth the effort involved.
The end result will be that I will have accomplished something extraordinary, something that I never dreamed I could accomplish in my lifetime. And it will be worth it.
I am choosing to write that next post because I am worth it.
