    Well, reading this was like looking into a mirror on my own work life – I frequently beat myself up about the levels I’ve reached and why I have not got further in life. 

    Like you say – it’s a learned behaviour and it eventually effects your personality, well it did for me! 

    I am also currently looking to work online, to build something new and to feel proud of – I’m looking forward to reading your review that could change my life…

      Thanks Chris!

      It’s a practice, I’m far from perfection, and I have found that identifying my needs and giving myself permission to do what I believe needs to be done, even if it’s a different way of thinking, is helpful.

      Keep moving forward, and I hope to see comments from you again!

      To your success,

    There is a popular saying that if you want to find a better and easier way to do something give it to a lazy person. I put this statement here because of what you said about the fact that if you had not procrastinated your life would never had changed for the better.

    Though procrastination is considered a bad habit and I totally agree with that but you never know what life has in store for you. That procrastinating might just be life telling you that the path it needs you to follow is not yet available and you need to relax and just wait a bit longer.

      Hi Jay,

      Is that a popular saying?!  🙂  I like it.

      I definitely believe that if I am struggling to get something done, then it’s in my best interest to look at what’s going on with me because maybe something needs to change.  

      It’s my opinion that the stigma placed on the behavior we call procrastination is missing something else at work, and maybe if we allow the process to unfold, without judgements, there could be a break through.  

      Feeling great about myself helps me to work better, feel better and be better.  

      Thanks for your comment!

        It was a saying that was coined from the words of one of the world’s richest men and that is Bill Gates.

    Hey, I PA! 🙂 I hope you are doing great? And I hope the plans for a better life are standing out? Frankly, it was nice readings through this piece. You quite amaze me. Just like you, I procrastinate alot. I have seen a way I can transform my financial life so I can be free from the rat race but I have not been doing what I am suppose to do. I just hope to conquer this soon.

    All the best

      Hi BEazzy Shifts,

      Just for deciding to read my page, maybe even go through the rest of my site, you’re making steps forward.  

      Identify what’s really important to you, I mean really important.  Then, see what you want to do in those areas.  

      I find when I set tasks for myself, or more disappointingly someone else sets tasks for me, and I don’t or won’t do them, I really need to re-evaluate the importance of them because if I really believe in their importance then I will get behind them.  If I don’t believe in their importance, then my brain doesn’t figure out a way to get them done.

    I’m very grateful for finding this article. I am in exactly the same situation at this point of my life, counting down to the end of my contract with the company I work for: 24 working days! I also, am tired of having to do something I despise doing every single day of my life. I have started a blog and am hoping to be able to develop it when I have some more time to write, rather than the weekends and late night spurts I put into it now because of the 10 hours daily my current work is taking out of my life at the moment.

    As you mentioned in your post, I am not really sure of where I’m going but have definitely decided that the road I’m on now is not the right one for me. I need to break out of the shell I’m now in and do new things. It would be great if this new venture could lead to travel time and exploration of myself and its bettering. I used to travel a lot to India, Nepal, Thailand, etc., etc. but my last trip to Mexico which started in 1999 lasted to 2015 and in that time lapse, I formed a family whose necessities changed my life. My daughter is 16 now and is planning to go to Spain where she will be with her older sister and will be able to study. It’s my time to pick up on my traveling which I miss so much. And that’s exactly what I am decided on doing.

    I will build up an Internet marketing business in the years that my daughter will still be living with us and then, off I go! I don’t know what the results will be but I can tell you one thing> no procrastinating for this guy. It will be straight to work as soon as I leave my current job and have time to focus on my new venture. From there on, come what may. Thank you for your beautiful post!

      Hi Ioannis,

      Thank you for being so candid.  If your blog is about something you love, then I believe in you.  You will be successful.  You are succeeding even now.  

      Your daughters know you for who you’ve been to them all these years.  Starting your blog and making it successful will show them what you’re made of.  We put ourselves on hold, of course, for family and then one day it’s time for us to be important again.

      Really good job.  Thank you for your comment, and here’s to your success.

    Hey a fellow Engineer! I guess two only makes for coincidence, If you find another Engineer on here thats definitely a pattern. I think that it is impossible for anyone to do 100% all the time. That sounds like a great wa to burnout before you are 20!

    I think that doing your best is a great way to have no regrets at the end (i’m assuming here). But perhaps today 50% of your attention is the best you’ve got today, if you give that 50% isn’t that the best you can do? I think people are too hard on themselves (and others).

    Everyday is a gift because its not promised to anyone. Like you say you should figure out what you really want to do and go for right now.

      Hi Renton,

      Yes, I think everyone doing what they love as a job, if we want to call it that, would make the world a better place.  🙂

      Thanks for your comment.

      All the best,

    Well TaN, I think you are correct about happiness and procrastination. Life is full of things we don’t want to do but we have to. If we all could find in our life more things we love to do we’d be happy most of the time. Procrastination could be the code that could stir us to happiness. It could make us think about if we should be doing what we are doing. So, I love your rendition of happiness and the pursuit of it.

      Hi Denise,

      I’m curious if we exchanged the words ‘have to’ and ‘should’, could more freedom be experienced in the heart, because if the heart is stifled by the rules and barriers of our brains/conscious minds, then how can we truly find our heart’s desires?

      Thank you so much for your comment.

      Warm wishes,

      TaN
