How many times have you said:

“When the time is right, I will _____________.”

“Before I hit _____ years old, I will _____________.

“ I will begin to ____________ soon.

What do you do when you keep putting off that dream or important thing in your life, yet you do not consider yourself a procrastinator in the normal sense of the term?

This is not everyday procrastination

For most of my career, I have been a get it done and get it done now kind of person. While everyone procrastinates at times, I learned to use it to my advantage. I got rid of that everyday plague of procrastinating long ago. Yet…

I know I am not alone as I speak with others who have similar dreams or desires who use the same “ I will get to or do it someday” phrases mentioned above. Is this an acceptable way to be? It depends, doesn’t it?

If you want to continue getting nowhere on such things, keep doing what you are doing. But if you want to change your lack of results, do something different!
