“I’m thinking of doing it…..”
How many great ideas have you had in your life that were exciting… seemed like “sure things”… that had to be done… that could improve the world….that could improve YOUR world? You thought about it, talked to a confidant about it, and then, fssst! Gone! Forgotten, or worse, watched someone else do it and get the credit for it. You’re in good company; we are all procrastinators to some degree. Me, too.
When there’s a good idea, it’s in “the air”. A lot of people will think of it at the same time; but the person that takes action will be called the genius.
“Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often.”
What have YOU been “thinking” of doing? Find a piece of paper right now and make the list. Were you “thinking” of getting that laser… establishing a formal STM program… writing an Office Manual… going to Italy for two weeks? Make the list and put in target dates for completion. Then get it done! You’ll feel so good about your self.
“Procrastination is the bad habit of putting off until the day after tomorrow what should have been done the day before yesterday.”
