Procrastination

Don’t put this off to read later… It may never happen.

Why? Because if you’re like me, you’re all too familiar with what Rick Warren called the eight phases of procrastination…

Phase 1: “I’ll start early this time” (hopeful)
Phase 2: “I’ve got to start soon” (a little tension)
Phase 3: “I should have started sooner” (creeping guilt)
Phase 4: “There is still time to do it” (false reassurance)
Phase 5: “What’s wrong with me?” (getting desperate)
Phase 6: “I can’t wait any longer!” (intense pain)
Phase 7: “Just get it done!” (get it over with!)
Phase 8: “Next time, I’ll start earlier.” (the cycle repeats)

This makes sense, so why not embrace this and make changes earlier?
