Over thinking & Procrastination are the two most effective ways of doing nothing: You put everything off until you don’t feel like it anymore, or you think so hard about how to do it that you rip your chances of doing something exciting right out of your head.
I’m sure you have some long-term goals on your heart that you just haven’t come around to attacking with full force yet. Maybe you have short-term goals, like loosing those 10 pounds you gained but just haven’t found the “right” time to get started. That example is something we all know too well, some more than others, but it continues to plague us daily.
You are holding yourself back by allowing over thinking and procrastination into your life. These two very significant, yet dangerous words can do one of two things, enhance your progression downward or hold you back from going farther.
Your frustrations about procrastination can quickly turn into being stagnant, and defeated. This defeat in return starts to make you over think the tiniest of decisions. Not being decisive about small things means you are more than likely to get caught up in your thoughts, and fail again. These are serial killers that even the most successful have had to conquer.
Although these life killers affect us, it doesn’t have to be this way. No one says you have to procrastinate, do what you need to do so that you’re satisfied with yourself. Over thinking on the other hand can also be a positive trait when used correctly. When planning how to tackle procrastination, over thinking can come in handy. It allows you to think of all of the possible ways you can fail so that you can plan for success.
While both procrastination and over thinking are a couple of life’s serial killers, we are in charge of our own actions. At some point, there has to be a breaking point in the mind and change has to take over. Success is much harder to obtain without getting rid of bad habits or changing them to suit your lifestyle. It’s time to let the serial killers of life be reshaped or put to death once and for all.
