Procrastination and emotional peaks and lows

For many reasons, I have decided to start writing more. Not that writing has ever been my hobby, quite opposite, when having to write something, procrastination is all I usually manage in that respect for a long time. This time was different. Just the thinking about it got me pretty enthusiastic.

Getting Out of Your Own Way

Joseph Bennette, anxiety consultant in Salem, Oregon, published an article in his newsletter on how to deal with self sabotage (republished here with permission):

Getting Out of Your Own Way

For most of us, the biggest problem we have in manifesting what we want is ourselves - we get in our own way. I think I know what I want to do, yet I find myself thwarting my own efforts - self sabotage. What’s more, I find myself judging myself for all that sabotage saying, “It’s my fault. I didn’t do what I was supposed to do to make this work.” blah, blah, blah.

New and better discussion forum

New and better discussion forum was added recently. Put it to your use!

Get the procrastination troubles off your chest. Just share it, it will make you feel better.

And if you have accomplished something today, post too, for an imaginary "pat on the back" from other members.

I will be even happy to create a special "pat on the back" and "get it off your chest" forums!

And if you got some question...- that's what for the board is for!

Procrastination directory just started

Just started the procrastination directory.

In case you plan to submit something and are not the owner of submitted website, it will ask for your email address anyway, which you probably don't want to input. So just input anything @procrastinationhelp.com. It's a problem with that script, that I hope will be fixed by authors soon. The email adresses are not used for anything, after all, than to send a notice about approval.

Hope it will grow and grow and grow....

and

first of all

be of value to all the visitors here!

Procrastination help news - November

It has been few weeks since I have written anything. So here are at least the news as of what is being cooked in the  Procrastination Help kitchen:

  • Humor section is being worked on to move it a level up
  • an information and correction as to who is the originator of procrastination day
  • Stop Procrastination with Huna - how to use the knowledge of powerful and wise Hawaiian shamans, Kahuna, to take control of your life and repel the procrastination problems. Now this is something I am proud of - or at least I will be once it is published. It will be a free online mini-book. For sure, it will not cover Huna, it will only offer the recipes, methods. I will also do my best so that it doesn't interfere with any religious beliefs people visiting here might have, so I will attempt to remove all the spiritual information behind and just keep the working techniques.
  • review of Life Balance outlining software, and a template for it
  • I would also love to revive the idea of giving free blogs here to procrastinators to use as a "therapeutic" tool and look what I can do with the discussion board to resuscitate it

Buyers guide to procrastination products

I have just cooked up the "Buyers Guide To Procrastination Products and Therapy". If that was a software, it would be called version 0.9 or a beta version, but it is not. Therefore, I would welcome any comments, to make it better, more relevant, more readable, useful and understandable.

While it slightly leans towards the problems of procrastinators,  it can also be used as a general guide for the self-help field.

Negative feedback is welcome, but if you have positive one, I can stand it as well :).

Why it is so hard to quit procrastinating : short Sunday thought

Procrastination is about not being persistent. Yet installing any habit requires persistence at start. That's why procrastination is one of the hardest mental problems to fight.

If someone happens to have low self esteem, yet they manage to find a good working method, they will find improvement relatively possible.
If someone procrastinates, and finds a promising technique to improve productivity, they still will procrastinate to implement it.

The first step in overcoming procrastination: choose whichever most promising method that seems good to you, and stick to it. Persist.
