Many people have difficulty starting things. I myself am one of them... I am procrastinator, and I’m not proud of it. For example, I will do all of my low priority tasks on my to-do list... in other words, I’ll do everything at the bottom of my to-do list before doing my most important high priority tasks that are at the top of my list. This fundamental flaw in my approach to getting things done is nonsense. I’m not the only person who does this... Or, a great many other things many of us knowingly or unknowingly do to distract and deter ourselves from our true goals. It's all part of our own internal struggle with what Steven Pressfield says in The War of Art, is Resistance and that we have to overcome Resistance it's numerous forms everyday.
I am a procrastinator by nature so I’ve cultivated my "get things done" attitude and approach to life. For me, a big part of feeling good involves achieving and accomplishing things. It's weird I'm so drawn to achievement and success yet also a colossal procrastinator.
It's simple, the less we procrastinate the more we get done. The more we get done the better our life is. Unfortunately, many of us have an endless amount of stuff on our to-do list that we can't get it all done in a day. I would need weeks to get through my list. I go through phases where I’m getting things done and killing the game then suddenly I get hit with something like a holiday or something family related that halts my momentum. I hate getting my flow is disrupted because then I have to reestablish it which takes way more effort than just maintaining it.
The bottom line is achievement is rewarded. If you want to reap the rewards of achievement you need to sow the seeds of success. I think if you want to be successful you must define what success looks like to you. You can only imagine who you will become. Your responsibilities are your priority and procrastination is not an option. Get your priorities straight and focus on them. FOCUS = Follow One Course Until Successful... Stop worrying about the wrong things. Expect to give twice what you get. Accept that it's a struggle you have to overcome everyday and that you can do that. I think you've got this. Now go for it!
