Saying Is Not Doing
Updated: Dec 30, 2018
How many times did you say you would do something and life got in the way? Sometimes our actions are contrary to what we say. Taking action may be one of the most challenging activities we undertake. Procrastination seems to want to creep into our DNA when we least expect it. If you want to break the procrastination habit, you need to stay in the moment and focus on the action you should take.
That is the moment you have. Use it move from saying it to doing it. Starting gets us moving. Make the effort to begin the task. "Inch by Inch Anything is a Cinch" (Robert H. Schuller)
Concentrate on the pleasure you'll experience when you complete the task at hand. Then, take the next step in your action plan. It takes courage to start and move the needle forward. Think about past successes. Remind yourself of how you felt when you succeeded.
