The advertising slogan for Nike (sportswear) is "Just Do It"! Try this...here is a way to always remind yourself to NOT procrastinate. Get a pair of Nike shoes and use one of them as your purse or wallet. Put your keys, money and your ID into the shoe and carry the shoe around. Tell yourself, "Just Do It". Stop procrastinating on what you need to do and "Just Do It". Much like the shoe, if you don't take what you have and use it to its full capacity, then you can expect that you will go to waste. When you start to do what you need to do to reach your goals and destinations, you can stop carrying the shoe around, otherwise keep carrying the shoe around and keep telling yourself the slogan, "Just Do It". Don't allow yourself to be comfortable doing nothing towards reaching your full potential.
Where should you begin? Begin with yourself. You! Get your mind made up to stop procrastinating and to stop standing in your own way. A mind made up is worth millions. Stick with your choice to move forward and take the first step of your journey. Getting you mind grounded for the journey is the first step. Remind yourself or re-evaluate your goals and where you would like to be. Start with any constructive effort that is a part of helping yourself to succeed. Track your efforts with dates and descriptions in order to measure the flow of action that is being put into reaching your targets. Keep going. Jump over your hurdles and keep going forward. Get up and try again. Take a different route. Try a different approach. Be selective about who you get advice from. Believe the best. Don't be idle. Stop procrastinating or you'll look up one day and sadly realize that you chose to keep your dreams as just dreams. ~Leen
