Procrastination is a delay tactic that has the ability to choke your dreams and abort the plans and purposes you have for your life. It has to be nipped in the bud. It should not be given a chance to put your life and your dreams on hold.
The following are 7 benefits of not procrastinating:
Not procrastinating will afford you an opportunity to:
1. Find out what you can do.
If you want to find out what you can do and how far you can go…stop procrastinating!
When you don’t procrastinate, you get a chance to be the best you can be. You discover what your abilities are, how far you can stretch and what you can do. Not procrastinating gives you a chance to amaze yourself and others!
2. Make an impact on other peoples lives.
Use your gifts and talents to bless other people’s lives. Everyone has a message to share with other people. Not procrastinating allows you to act in a timely manner when making contributions to other peoples lives. Stop procrastinating! Others are waiting to be enriched and empowered by you.
3. Accomplish something.
Acting on a timely basis allows you to finally accomplish something! The project or dream or goal you have been working on for the last few years needs to be completed. Accomplish something. Bring that project to a close and add it to your list of accomplishments.
4. Move on to other things.
When you don’t procrastinate, you accomplish things and move on to other fresh and exciting things. This gives you the freedom to work on other projects without the guilt of pending issues that need attention.
5. Get yourself out of a rut.
When you are stuck in a rut or a situation that needs to be acted on, dreaming and constantly talking about future actions you plan to do, will not help. Do what needs to be done as soon as you can.
6. Manage your time better.
When you don’t procrastinate, you free up time for all the other things you want to do. Acting on things that need to get done, clears the clutter from your life, mind and frees up your schedule.
7. Conquer your fears and take risks.
The longer you procrastinate on overcoming your fears, the bigger your fear becomes in your eyes. The bigger your fear, the more terrified you become and the more you get tempted to procrastinate! Minimize your fears, stop procrastinating, act now and achieve your dreams.
