Why procrastinators procrastinate

If you are a procrastinator: you will laugh till your stomach hurts

I’m on a vacation in Gujrat [will blog about that at the end of this trip] with my family – and I decided to browse the net.

I found this article and laughed so much my family thinks I’m going nuts. I’m sure I have been a procrastinator too many times in life – and this one totally connected with the procrastinator in my head.

Couldn’t help sharing! Have fun!

I don’t have time.

This is an excuse I’ve used with abundance over the last few years. With my strenuous job, travelling, hectic schedule – I don’t have time to do anything other than my basic responsibilities.

But is this the way I want to live? Do I really want to look back at life and see only responsibilities well covered? Or do I want to see a life that had little bits of everything?

Fun, travel, relationships that’ll last forever and ticking things like sky diving off my bucket list?

I’m going to wake up a little earlier each morning to make time for the things I really want to do.

No one ever has time. Its a precious commodity. Make it.

Wake up earlier, be more organized, stop procrastinating – life has so much in store for us.

Be an explorer. Give up this excuse. And see the huge difference it makes.

Last Minute Frenzy

Last Minute Frenzy

I have always been a true lover of the last minute. There is always so much to do, so much going on and it is absolutely exciting….. or used to be till recently.

Going back in time – there was this book that my dad gifted to me while I was in school – “The seven habits of highly effective teens” by Sean Coovey. In that book, he categorized people into 4 categories:

1. The Slacker
2. The “Yes” Man
3. The Procrastinator
4. The Prioritizer

As I read through the descriptions – I had a choice to make – weather I’d rather live the crazy, fun filled, too much to do life of the procrastinator; or the neat, organized life of the prioritizer.

Well, the choice was easy. Who wants to have everything in order and never get to feel the rush of the last minute? So – the decision was made- and I was living the perfect procrastinator’s life – but now. It has caught up with me.

My schedule really has too many things in it – and I can’t make the time for all those things I love. Maybe its time to change quadrants.

The life of the prioritizer seems like more fun now – I can get everything done without the stress.

Now – I am going to get my life in order. Plan. Organize. Execute.

Any suggestions on how?
