Procrastination–Is Fear Keeping You Stuck?

What makes you run away from something you really need to do? Today I watched myself squirm as I began the task of writing up copy for a webinar I’ll be doing on June 18. I had to lasso myself to my chair to make myself do the task. I really wanted to run! Why? Because it was something I’d never done before and I felt out of my element.

Avoiding a task because it requires traveling into unknown territory is a common reason for procrastination.

The reality?           Once I got started I found that the task was not as hard as my brain had me thinking it was.

The lesson?            I can survive discomfort, do the task and reap rewards!

The rewards?       The good feelings of relief and pride that came from the sense of accomplishment for tackling and                                                        successfully completing a challenging new task.
