So I’m cranking along getting the blog and vlog done, and feeling good about myself. I’m on track, and feeling bouncy that it’s nearly time for the ‘me-time’ I’ve scheduled in.
Oh YES for my upcoming reading time in a sunbeam!
And then the glitch happens. I realise the steps I thought were happening yesterday to make sure we reached the deadline on a project, didn’t happen. So I go into action-stations and figure out what needs to happen to put this fire out.
Can you relate?
Actually I end up going down this rabbit hole and surface an hour later – having completely missed my me-time.
I knew I needed to write this blog because this is a habit I’ve found myself repeating in the past. In fact a book I’m reading at the moment is helping me to replace this old, clunky, self-deceptive habit with the self-honouring I deserve (let me know if you’d like the name of it!)
Being my word
We all know it’s important to keep commitments to others.
What about to ourselves?
If you’re like me sometimes – you’ll find yourself saying tomorrow! I’ll have that time for me tomorrow. The ultimate in procrastination; denying ourselves.
So what to do?
There you have it in a nutshell…my new method for making sure I get a look-in on the priority list. Put off the procrastination til later, and give myself my me-time.
Does it work? Don’t take my word for it!
Theory’s great – and experience is better. I’d love to hear how you get on with procrastinating your procrastination! Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
