If you want to get something done, ask a busy person

I have often heard that people who are not busy already won’t likely take on a new project. I have taken on so many that I sometimes have to say “No” now.

However, because I stay so busy I do get a lot accomplished. It’s kinda like the medication commercial which says “A body in motion tends to stay in motion.”

I have been terribly rushed lately trying to get everything accomplished that I need to before vacation. But, I still joined a new group on Linked-In today called Books and Writers. I find it really interesting, though I won’t be able to devote as much time to it as I would like. When I get responses to my posts, I will try to check them out.

In the meantime I am remaining very busy!

Procrastination

Procrastinate is defined by Merriam-Webster as to put off intentionally the doing of something that should be done. Most of us have been there: “I’ll have plenty of time to get that done tomorrow.” But then we learned a useful cliche, “Tomorrow never comes.”

This is why working in priorities has become second nature to me. Of course no one can get everything done that they would like to do in any given day when the list of necessary objectives seems exhaustive. But getting around to doing the most urgent tasks can be accomplished.  Start by making a list of items with the most pressing at the top and graduating to the lesser important at the foot. Then begin to whittle away at them, marking them off like items on a grocery list. This way procrastination can become a problem solved.
