I am going to take the "pro" side of procrastination. ;) I
really don`t see it as a bad thing, because if you are feeling like you have to
procrastinate, it just means that you are not mentally ready for it. The
goal here is not to beat yourself up over it, and to make peace with where you
are. Think about times when you feel very inspired, you know what you
want, and you feel ready to do it-- when everything feels right, there is no
stopping you! So if you are feeling hesitation, there is a reason
for it. It could be that perhaps what you are thinking of doing just isn’t
the right thing to do, or its just
not the right time. Or maybe, it is a really good idea, but you are not
the person to actually take action on it! Delegation, delegation, delegation!
=D For anything you don`t want to do, there is someone who loves to do
it, no matter what the task. That is my experience at least. Or,
sometimes we just need to give ourselves a little pep talk, and remind
ourselves why we want to take the action that we are procrastinating.
Sometimes i will list my reasons for wanting it, or I will list the positive
aspects of taking the action, and imagine the desired end results. Once
your intentions are lined up properly, action just flows out of you, there is
no hesitation. =) Your actions will always come right after your dominant
Hope that helps! I do notice a lot of people tend to beat themselves up when they are procrastinating, and it is really not nessesary. Its important that we listen to our feelings, especially when they are unpleasent. =)
