The action of delaying or postponing something

I wrote my first blog on Social Media and it was pretty lame. So, I scrapped that one. That happened more than three weeks ago. It has taken me a very long time to get back on board on and write a new blog. Therefore I have chosen to write about PROCRASTINATION.

The word procrastination evokes bad feelings – disappointment, failure, laziness, — I can go on and on but that would just prolong the agony of writing this blog!

“When you see something that needs to be done just do it because you don’t know what’s about to happen.”

A very wise friend and colleague said this to me in a business consulting session. Simple, right? No not really. It is so easy to put something off – a simple task you can do later or a difficult task you cannot face because you are unsure of your ability.

Small business owners need to make the statement above their mantra. Do I need to say why? Think about it. Who else is going to get the task done? Also, you need to remind yourself how rewarding it will be to cross that task off your list.

Whew, I just did that and I am so happy!
