Do you know that you are not a leader in procrastination? I mean you know it; because YOU are not a leader. You have friends that are leaders; and they are leaders because they are strong leaders. They take action regardless of the consequences; they lead their teams and work teams, and work with people in all types of environments.
If you are reading this right now you are not a leader. You are LUCKY that someone chose you to be a leader. Lucky you! You were chosen to be a leader, and so there is no reason why you cannot begin to do the things required of you to LEAD your life. You are a leader in waiting; so let's get started.
There is nothing more common than procrastination. It is a learned behavior that was purchased when a parent or authority figure told you that it would make you successful. The behavior then becomes a habit, and then an entire culture was built around procrastination. Now that we understand why we procrastinate, we must then understand why we still procrastinate.
One of the reasons we procrastinate is because we are afraid. We are afraid that if we don't act right now we will lose our job or find ourselves without an in today. We are afraid that if we don't act right now we will lose our job or find ourselves without an in now tomorrow. We are afraid that if we don't act right now we will fail right here and now. And there is a good chance that all of these thoughts are true.
But the fact of the matter is that you can not only keep yourself from procrastinating; but you can turn that procrastination into action. You are a leader in the action because you have a plan. You have a goal. You have a plan to become successful.
When you look at someone else's life success; the first thing you will notice is that the person has clarity. They are not vague; they are direct. They have a plan. Their plan includes knowing how to get to where they are going and know what they are going to do to get there. They do not procrastinate. They are leaders in procrastination.
If you think about someone who is doing what you are doing right now, what makes you feel like you are on the right track? Is it a feeling of pride? Is it a feeling of accomplishing your goals? When you think about someone who is not on the same path as you; what kind of approach does he or she take to get there? Is it a feeling of humility?
Procrastination is not sin; it is simply a lack of plan. You must understand that you have a plan and that it must be a comprehensive plan. The more comprehensive your plan is the easier it will be for you to accomplish your goals. When you don't put out a comprehensive plan, your plan will fail you. Therefore, you are a leader in procrastination; you must work toward your own success.
