Now, I must admit, I’m a hugeeeeeee procrastinator. Yeah, I’ll finish whatever task I’ve been given or decide to do, but it’ll definitely be completed just before it’s due. Now, I know that’s not the best solution. But hey, I’m genuinely trying here. However, I don’t normally procrastinate ALL tasks – just the ones that I dread doing or am not so passionate about.
In my new years resolutions post – which you can read here – I talked about how that if I want to make any changes in my life, whether they’re big or small, if i truly wanted the change to be made I would make the change right then rather than procrastinate.
To me, it’s important to be invested in the change(s) that you want to make. Otherwise, you’re less likely to be successful and to follow through with it. The way I see it, why wait to make the change if it’s that important to you? Also, what’s the big difference between making the change at that moment than later on? Time? Well, just remember that the longer you wait, the less likely you are to follow through with the change, as it gives you the chance to come up with more excuses to continue putting it off.
My advice? The sooner you can start whatever changes you want to make the better.
