Is it just me?

Last Update: September 15, 2020

Hello Everyone!

The act or habit of putting off or delaying, especially something requiring immediate attention is the definition of procrastination according to The Webster Dictionary.

The training as outlined on Wealthy Affiliate (WA) Platform is by all accounts, well paced, manageable and with interesting tasks to do. In my goals, I pledged a number of hours that I could comfortably devote to working through the training.

A month on and taking stock of my journey thus far, I am not discouraged. However, on reflection I could have done better. More importantly, a small inner voice popped up a question,"Is it just you?" It was then that I had an epiphany - I have been indulging in procrastination due to a perceived lack of control!

There is a plethora of specific reasons why people procrastinate. I am not anxious, overwhelmed or having a fear of failure just to mention a few. I forgot that my other competing interests in my life are still clambering for the limited time slots available to me, so I need to organize my time and be proactive.

This journey maybe personal but I am sure that my thoughts may resonate with my fellow beginners in this community. I am now focusing on my goals as I undertake the training that will enable me to attain them. I am grateful for all the help I continue to receive from many people on this platform. Stay productive

I believe that procrastination is a common problem with most of us Davis. We all seek to find excuses not to finish a project.
All the best. Jim

I just set them aside and move on to one of my many other projects, Jim, until I get motivated to work on the one I set aside!

I think if you get into a habit of setting aside a definite time for you to do what needs to be done, you can probably avoid procrastination.
