You aren’t a procrastinator.
Procrastination isn’t a “thing.”
Procrastination is nothing more than a story you’ve made up (or believed someone else’s story) about yourself to explain your reason for not doing something you just don’t want to do.
If something keeps getting pushed to tomorrow’s To-Do List, that’s simply an opportunity for you to slow down and gather more information.
Why am I not completing this task, project or assignment?
Answer yourself honestly.
You will uncover the reason behind your procrastination story and that reason may look like this:
it’s not fun
it’s too big
it’s not my responsibility
Or any number of reasons I’ve left off this incomplete list.
How can I love this project?
How can I have fun with it?
How can I change my story about this task?
When we slow ourselves down long enough to truly look at what’s not being done we see we are not the problem. Our relationship with our story about ourselves is the problem.
Rewrite your story so that the protagonist is the conquerer of tasks and not the other way around.
Happy endings are a choice.
