When it comes to this one, only you know, as this is a very personal question.
This is one of the things that I’ve battled in my life.
I’ve found it interesting to look back and see how much it was robbing me of joy, satisfaction and feelings of happiness because I’d feel like I couldn’t be bothered to do whatever it was that I was putting off doing. ¹
Right on schedule, I’d then feel guilty about the fact that I’m not doing it.
And next up would be even more guilt because I know I should be happy with where I’m at and what I’m experiencing in life.
Yes, you’re right. It was simply crazy.
Focus and decide
There are some very handy, simple tips to help us gain clarity on when NOW is the time to take action towards more of what we do want.
One of these is to focus closely on how it will feel/feels right now to have what we do want (even before it happens).
Most importantly, it’s about deciding who we choose to be, including our attributes as a person – especially given that these characteristics and ways of being ultimately govern what we have.
Something that Fi’s passionate about is time and health which includes our financial health. Namely, having the time available to do what we want, plus improving our physical and also our financial health.
When is it a good time to take action?…
…to create more of what we do want?
Surely it makes sense to start as soon as we can, so we can be more likely to succeed, plus have the time available to enjoy it?
Another handy tip is to start with the most difficult task first and break it into little chunks so that we’re focusing on just a little bit at a time.
Next is to avoid having to get everything perfect before we actually start on our project
Another is to set a deadline for when we’re going to actually get the project done, and to share this with those in our communities/circles to help keep ourselves accountable.
Interestingly, the Millionnaire Academy is a place that’s bursting at the seams with specific ways to help us create more of what we do want in our lives.

¹Appropriately, ‘procrastination’ originates from the Latin verb procrastinare — to put off until tomorrow.
