    Hi TaN, the only time I make excuses for what’s not being done is when I don’t want to do it. Starting by breaking down the task often helps me get started. Like with tons of paperwork on my desk, I’ll start with just a corner and work my way out. You are right about setting realistic goals to complete a task. Thank you

      Hi Denise,

      Thank you for taking the time to read through my posts. You have read through most of them and left comments! I truly appreciate when visitors leave comments. I hope the posts are useful for you in some way. I wish you tremendous success and good health.

      Thank you for your comment. You make a good point about breaking down tasks – looking at something that seems insurmountable can sometimes feel daunting, looking at just the pieces can allow a person to feel confident they can complete it.

      Warm regards,

      TaN

    Hi TaN, I must say that I enjoy reading your article as this is something that is not a small problem at all. Personally, I often delay important things in my life just because I am not currently interested in it. I agree that we all should set goals and strive to achieve them because we may only have one chance to achieve them. Thanks for great motivation.

    I can really relate to this.. I usually find something “better” to do then what I need to do. The last week I have been forcing myself to sit down and do whatever I need to do, it hasn´t been easy as I find myself daydreaming about a variety of foods but I allow myself to do so for a little bit and then I get back into it.

      Hi Alexandra,

      Thanks for sharing your experience.  It’s interesting that you daydream about food, I certainly do this as well when I am fasting.

      I appreciate your comment.

    Hey there, 

    I’ve really enjoyed reading this article as it’s interesting and contains tonnes of valuable information. From my perspective, I tend to think that procrastination is something which every affiliate marketer does but avoiding it is what makes an individual successful in this field. Being an affiliate marketer, I used to come across many distractions and I never completed a task in time. However, with proper planning and remaining yourself of why you started this business, you can avoid procrastination. 

    Thanks a lot for taking your precious time in writing this blog post. I’ll be sharing this post with my fellow affiliate marketers. Keep up the good work!

      Hi AV 2001,

      It is interesting that this behavior can be present even when we are pursuing a desired end goal – in your example, a successful affiliate marketer.  There is certainly more to deciphering what this behavior accomplishes, in my opinion.  

      I appreciate your comment, thanks.  I wish you success.

    Procrastinating does not help anyone in the long run first of all as  you have said you keep posting things as if you  have  something better you are doing  secondly you loose and waste a lot of time and opportunities that come your ways while thinking  wherther to take it or not .by the time  wake up from you procastinating ming opportunities have passed  time is lost. So is money.  you see you end up loosing.

    Thanks for the helpful post! You made salient points across the post which everyone must work upon in order not to turn procrastination into a habit. It gets to certain stages of life when procrastination leads into non-gallant attitude on the part of certain people who are known with the character of taking things with levity, whereas, it may not mean the same to the person being accused of such a character or an attitude. in order for procrastination not to become a habit, it has to go with scheduling and timing. Thanks for the great work!

      Hi Israel,

      Thank you for this point, I agree.  Many times people judge based on personal criteria.  This judgment can be bestowed unfairly when it is applied to someone else.

      I appreciate your thoughtful and accurate words.
