3 Questions To Avoid Procrastination

I just got back from a fun-filled, relaxing week in the Bahamas! I stayed at the Atlantis resort and it was just fabulous! I wish you could of all been there...and you could of if you won the trip like I did with my company!

Anyway, I am here to talk about procrastination. I did not win the trip because of procrastination..I won the trip because I took action! While away I heard one of the co-founders of my company speak. He listed 3 question YOU need to ask yourself to avoid procrastination.

Here are the questions:
1) Do I have to do this?
2) Do I want it done so it is not on my mind?
3) Will it be any easier to do it later?

If you take time to ask yourself these 3 questions while sitting on the couch procrastinating I know it will change your attitude and will relieve much stress in your life. When you ask yourself these questions it will make you get up and take action. Why wait for later will be glad you decided to do what should have been done and not waiting for the last minute!

Create A Great Week!

I am always suffered from procrastination . The solution i found out , just jump into things . Its like bungee jumping , if you allow ur mind to think for 1 second you will never jump (unless someone hit you from back)

I am a procrastinator too. I tend to think too long...that's the excuse.

Wow..I've always dreamed of a holiday in Bahamas - but that's what it remains as till today - a dream.

You're right, me should get rid of the proscratinating monster in me and head on!

If you enjoyed Atlantis, you'd probably have a blast in the world's only fully-submerged hotel situated in Dubai, UAE.

I will give this a try. I have a problem with procrastinating at home and at work but when I get to doing things I get things done. The problem is getting up and doing it!
