Just do it is more than a slogan for a company. Pavelka referred to procrastination stealing time. https://ptsd-acceptingcopingthriving.com/2016/12/05/pavelka-toolbox/ I became a believer after reading the book Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway. https://www.amazon.com/Feel-Fear-Do-Anyway/dp/0345487427
The most recent example was DH and I celebrated 40 years of marriage attending TSO Trans Siberian Orchestra concert. http://www.trans-siberian.com/ The stadium had us 6 stories up in the air with stairs that felt like they were almost vertical to get to our seats. I was stunned at the wave of fear that crashed over me before the concert started. I am sure some observer laughed at me grabbing the railing with a death grip and not letting go of one railing before I could reach the next. Yup, I felt the fear and went down to my seat anyway. FANTASTIC concert. Music, video, and pyrotechnics combined into a heart pounding 5 senses immersion into the concert. WOW WOW WOW. When I walked back up the stairs I felt no fear. I am so glad that I didn’t allow my initial fear keep me from an awesome experience. Some days it is helpful to remind myself that emotions are temporary but important to listen to sometimes. Other times, I feel the fear and do it anyway.
Procrastination has many causes it may be fear, uncertainty, tiredness, or many other reasons. I use a variety of techniques to push past my stellar ability to procrastinate. Getting to the root of why I am procrastinating a certain job helps me choose the best way to tackle it. Occasionally, I am guilty scientific neglect. The art of putting something off for so long, I don’t have to do it, very passive/aggressive. I am trying to learn to say “No” if I don’t actually want to do something. I think as long as I breath I will be challenged with procrastination. Sometimes I remember to Just Do It!
