Procrastinating is easy, that’s a fact.
Even type-A personalities and wildly productive grown-ups put things off. But what we might critique as procrastination can actually be a misdiagnosis for instinct.
One of the effects of living in a hyper-productive society is that intuitive resistance can get labeled as procrastination. But what seems like avoidance may be a deeper inkling of wrong timing.
Amazing grace can happen when you choose inner rhythms over external pressure. @DanielleLaPorte (Click to Tweet!)
For your reflection…
What are you putting off? Make a list, from the micro to macro.
What patterns do you see? Trust your heart.
What tasks can you delegate?
What should go on your Stop Doing List?
It’s worth considering: you may be procrastinating for divine reasons.
Always with Love,
