What are the sources of procrastination? For me, it’s the white sheet of paper. Not knowing what to do, where to start, who to ask, how to ask, or how to do something will cause me to freeze up and justify waiting another day and another day and another day to get moving on a project. Of course, each delay makes it that much harder to begin because now I’m late and I still don’t know how to do it, so the task seems increasingly more daunting with each passing day.
How much easier my life is when I just admit that I don’t know how to do something, learn what I need to know and proceed. Acting in this manner gets the job done in a timely fashion, causes much less stress and usually makes me feel pretty good about myself in the process.
What are the sources of your procrastination?

The latest news to come from the ADP (Automatic Data Processing), a payroll processing firm, is that December saw fewer job cuts in store for Americans. Yes, that’s right, only 84,000 of you lost your jobs last month. That’s like almost half of what it was in November (145,000). I mean, it’s practically nothing… huh!?
84,000 people being told, “We’re sorry, but we’re going to have to let you go,” is hardly good news. While the drop is great, and it’s obvious what they’re trying to say, why don’t they read that through the eyes of one of those 84,000.
“Oh great. I’m only 1 out of 84,000 to get fired! I’m so relieved that I think my mortgage will pay itself!”
Let’s get real.
What America needs is hope. America needs to get out there and employ itself. We need to fill every vacancy, every nook and cranny of job opportunity, and pay those inflated mortgages!
Are you with me?
