Serious But Easy Help for Procrastinators - Read it Now!

I married the world’s worst procrastinator.  I have learned NEVER to ask him if he wants to do something now...or later.  It does not matter what the task is, his option - later.  Every time.  

@BatteredHope  Help for procrastinators

It certainly has been a problem for him, especially when he misses something important because he is too late.  Here are some questions to ask yourself to see if you are a procrastinator:

Have you spent countless minutes, hours or days searching for something you misplaced because you did not take the time to put it where it belonged?

Have you had an argument with someone you live with for misplacing something of his or hers?

Have you missed an appointment because you forgot?

Have you been halfway to your destination and remembered you didn’t bring what you needed?

Do you have piles of papers or unopened mail that you will get to someday?

Do you have that nagging notion telling you to get organized?

Have you read books and/or articles on how to get organized?

Have you purchased organizational aids to help you and then never used them?

If you answered yes to even one of these questions, you are not organized to the point you want to be. There is a simple solution to this problem.  I am quite sure you are thinking, “Yeah, right.”  You have tried everything and nothing has worked so far.

I have a tried and proven method to get organized and eliminate all that wasted time you spent trying to get organized.  I know there are countless books on the subject.  I know you can spend money on books, CDs, videos and even go to seminars to get the desired results but I am going to give you a secret.

If you are serious about getting organized, you will get the results using ONE little secret.  It is a secret my father taught me when I was a little girl and it still works today – every time!

REMEMBER -- It takes 30 days to break a habit and form a new one.  But the exciting part is that you can get results immediately.  Each time you take a baby step in the right direction, it will pay off in the end.  The more progress you make, the closer you are to becoming ORGANIZED.

Do you have any idea how much time you will have to do the things you want to do when you are not wasting your time trying to find something?

My father drilled this into my psyche.  It is still there and has helped me to be organized, on time, and a lot less frustrated.
Six magic words that can change your life

Before I tell you the words, be prepared to say them a hundred times a day, if needed. Make some post-it notes; put them all over the house, your office, and your car.

Those six words are – DO IT RIGHT – DO IT NOW! Just that simple. Saying them out loud requires commitment.

Even after all these years, sometimes I want to choose to put something off until later or not do it properly. But I say DO IT RIGHT – DO IT NOW! As soon as I make the effort, I reap the benefits.

Reap in the benefits

I rarely lose or misplace something because it was not put back where it belonged. It is easy to put off doing something now by making the excuse that you don't have time. Take the time. You will learn to make the time to do it now and properly.

If it is a big job that needs doing, make a point of putting it at the top of your priority list to do before you take on any other task, which may be more pleasant.

It may sound too simple to work but it does! I challenge you to be diligent for 30 days and the benefits and rewards will be incredible.

You can thank me now (or later) but please send me your thoughts, ask me questions or tell me about your victories! provided the photo image
