I sure hope you're enjoying the summer as much as I am. The simple pleasures and time with my sweetheart is what brings sunshine to my days, so not too worry if the sun hides behind clouds, I am still happy for what I have.
One of the very few items of inspiration in my home is a small stone placed on our bathroom counter that says simply ‘Gratitude’. It reminds me that life is great and to be lived with joy. I don’t have many objects of this sort because they cause clutter and more work to clean around. I prefer my space. Yet this object has one simple powerful message, so it stays. Besides, with my fiancé painting up a storm, our home is full of beauty and inspiration already.
I am going to admit, writing this post today was a bit of an effort. When I am busy with life, projects and helping others I sometimes put off blogging and writing articles. Sometimes I am just not inspired to do this; rather I would like to be knee deep in an organizing project.
The idea for today’s post came to me as I was doing some reading and I felt it was overdue. So, I sat down, started typing, and out it came.
And now for today's post. Enjoy...
Advice for the Expert and Novice Procrastinator
It’s Thursday afternoon, and Tracy realizes that her proposal for her newest client is due by the tomorrow morning. With a busy night of family events planned, she knows that if she doesn’t get this done prior to leaving work she is going to be dropping the ball. So far this proposal is only in outline and finishing it in time seems difficult. Can she do it?
For many people the tendency to procrastinate is basically normal and at worst it creates unnecessary time pressure and some inconvenience. We all occasionally put off doing things, avoid action or feel unmotivated at times. I could have put my name in that first paragraph too.
Then there are people that really have a hard time. They may seem incapable of getting things started, let alone done. We’ll call them ‘expert procrastinators’ as they, more often than not, find themselves immersed in stress and open loops. For them it may feel like living on the edge of a storm, constantly.
Today, I’ll share some easy methods that can help anyone, ‘expert or novice procrastinator’ beat procrastination and get back to feeling less stressed and more productive today.

Try making a game of showing up on time..
People are generally more enthusiastic about embracing even the most mundane task if they can figure out how to make it more interesting. Getting from A to B isn't too exciting, yet try making it a game. The object of this game being, getting to your destination as close as possible to your targeted arrival time. No later, no sooner.
WANT TO GET MORE JAZZED AND FOCUSED IN YOUR BUSINESS?
If you're like me and many people I meet, I bet you just nodded your head 'YES!'
Just because I stay organized doesn't mean I don't need to keep working to improve my business. I work on improving my business all the time, step by step. I find inspiration to do this by being part of a coaching program, and I really enjoy the support I get there.
My clients look to me to support them, yet indeed I too need support. Heck, I think we all need to look outside ourselves sometimes and discover the things we don't know and how they can make our lives better.
So if you need support to get your workflow 'unstuck' and back in 'flow' call me. That's my passion and those are the skills I love to flex.
And if right now a little 'inspiration' to get you 'juiced' with possibility and opportunity is what you need, come join me for taste of the 'Inspired Living Business Plan' and what it can do for you.
