One Bite At A Time

Posted by georgiannasaysjustdoyou on April 2, 2011

The problem with trying to get things done is that we often look at how much needs to go into it before we are “done.”  So, we procrastinate until we think we have the time to dedicate to getting it “done.”  If you don’t have a deadline, that’s just fine, but what if you do?  What if other things are held up until you can get through this?

We know that procrastination tends to be a bad word.  It takes on that bad reputation because it connects to things we don’t want to do even when we know we need to or should be doing them.  So I will pass on advice that I have heard from many places over and over.  Take one bite at a time.  If it is a big project, a long report, a lot of reading, the room that never gets cleaned or the cluttered basement (not mine, I swear!). . .don’t make it your goal to finish today.

Make it your goal to put in 15-20 minutes today, or an hour.  You can always squeeze in 15 minutes.  It might be harder to squeeze in an hour, but you should map it out according to your deadline (if you have one).  You don’t eat your dinner in one bite, you must take in one spoonful or one forkful at a time…usually.  And usually, you have to chew your food before you swallow it.

Take your time, do it in short bursts and you WILL get through it.  Stop procrastinating!

I don’t have the answers, but I always have thoughts.  Won’t you share yours?

  1. This one’s a biggie. One approach that’s help me get past the habit (I was bad) of procrastinating was to force myself to just get started. Often times I’d find myself actually finishing the task very quickly. Other times, once started, I’d realize that I was dreading it much more than it deserved and be more willing to complete it and relieve myself of the stress….

    Thanks Georgianna!!
