Monday Mojo – Push it Forward

How do you feel about procrastination?

So many people I know can relate to the notion of putting things off. 
We pause. 
We hold back. 
We delay. 

In her book, Sabotage, Emma Gannon talks about why we procrastinate, and many experts are starting to agree that it’s aligned with perfectionism; the idea that we don’t get ahead because we want things to be “just right”. 

This though, can create its own problems, and you’ll know yourself (especially if you’re on the receiving end of a procrastinator), stress can build. Sometimes we wish people would just make a decision, but there may well be something holding them back.

Here’s something that might help:
This week, maybe set the intention to Push It Forward. This article explores the “four D’s” of Time Management: Do, Defer (Delay), Delegate and Delete (Drop). People sometimes delay what they should do because they have so much to do. Choosing what gets your time and attention can help you make better decisions, and therefore do what needs to be done.

Peter Sage also explains, in the video below, why we sometimes stay static. Whilst who we are at our core – our soul, if you like – is hardwired for growth, our nervous system is designed for comfort. We always get what we’ve always got, if we always do what we’ve always done. The good news is that incredible things are on the horizon, if we just make space in our minds for what we want and what we can do.
