Get going

Procrastination is my friend, I feel comfortable putting on the long finger those things that I cannot easily complete. Things that are a bit abstract or blurry around the edges I spend more time thinking about the task than the eventual time spent on the task.

So what would happen if I started to say – Now I will … rather than I must just, or I should actually or I might.

Much of the deferring of the task is an unknown fear or a doubt, or allowing my old self to rise up and tell me “you can’t do this” or “you will fail” With that mindset, of course, I hesitate.

So how to change the mindset?

Start at the beginning. Develop new habits that have a positive impact on my mind. Today I went for a walk in the rain. It was my first rain walk since I drowned my phone last March in Belfast. It felt good to be out in the rain and wind.

Job done – I started something.

Look at the nations and watch—
    and be utterly amazed.
For I am going to do something in your days
    that you would not believe,
    even if you were told. 
Habakkuk 1:5
And we urge you, brothers and sisters, 
warn those who are idle and disruptive, 
encourage the disheartened, 
help the weak, 
be patient with everyone. 
1 Thessalonians 5:14
