Reasons NOT to Do It!

I recently blogged about procrastination … something that we all battle to varying degrees. There are always reasons not to do things, so I thought I would list a few …

There is plenty of time to do it later …
If I leave it long enough perhaps someone else will do it …
I have much more pressing things right now, like getting coffee …
I am nervous about doing it, so I’ll put it off …
I forgot …
It is not really important to me …
It looks hard, so I’ll do it later …
Maybe I’ll have more energy later …
Maybe I’ll be better prepared later …
I don’t want to do it so I won’t think about it …

There are probably a lot more excuses than these, but I guess I’m not as adept at finding excuses NOT to do things. My goal is to complete as many things as possible … so I look for ways to get things done, as quickly and efficiently as possible. To each their own, but if you want success at any level it comes from achievement, not from inactivity!

Do you look for excuses NOT to do things?
Do you take the “easy” way out?
Do you make things other people’s problems?

These are not characteristics or behaviors that will help you to reach success and to feel the reward of achieving success. Look for ways to make things happen … it will change you forever!
