Welcome to my Picture of the Day!
Are you a procrastinator? Well, a lot of us suffer from this syndrome and need to be empowered so today I want to share this picture about EMPOWERMENT and how it spoke to me.
I found it on Facebook one Sunday morning when I had just completed a list of small things I needed to do that I had been putting off for weeks. I realised at that moment that I had just been empowered to act and do something about my procrastination.
You see, all those ‘things’ I had to do (reply to some emails, phone people etc) were making me jumpy. After I wrote the list and began to act upon them, I felt so powerful … as if I had completed some huge tasks whereas the tasks had only been small!
I was shocked that acting had made me feel so good. And you know that feeling you get when you have been putting things off? Like there is a monkey on your back? Well, it simply disappeared after I acted and then I felt so light without that monkey. When I saw this picture on Facebook, I shared it and wrote underneath:
“Thinking about EMPOWERMENT today so here’s a thought: when you feel dis-empowered in some big areas of your life, try empowering yourself in some small areas … like doing something small you’ve been putting off? Worked for me!”
I’m not sure why we procrastinate but I know that doing so can result in stress, a sense of guilt and severe loss of personal productivity. In other words, I hate myself when I procrastinate! So folks, I am trying to make some gains in empowerment on a daily basis … by taking my own advice above and doing some small things every day.
Good luck to all of the procrastinators out there …
