Procrastination is my friend, I feel comfortable putting on the long finger those things that I cannot easily complete. Things that are a bit abstract or blurry around the edges I spend more time thinking about the task than the eventual time spent on the task.
So what would happen if I started to say – Now I will … rather than I must just, or I should actually or I might.
Much of the deferring of the task is an unknown fear or a doubt, or allowing my old self to rise up and tell me “you can’t do this” or “you will fail” With that mindset, of course, I hesitate.
So how to change the mindset?
Start at the beginning. Develop new habits that have a positive impact on my mind. Today I went for a walk in the rain. It was my first rain walk since I drowned my phone last March in Belfast. It felt good to be out in the rain and wind.
Job done – I started something.
Look at the nations and watch— and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told. Habakkuk 1:5
And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 1 Thessalonians 5:14
