I will get round to it…………….tomorrow

procrastination

Okay, how many times have we all said: 'I will start taking that walk every day; starting tomorrow' I am going to change my diet…… after I come back my holidays', 'I know doing that course will help me get a better job; need to do something about that……next academic year', 'I want to spend more time doing fun things with the kids, but, I need to ……..fill in the blanks', 'I need to make time to practice some relaxation every day, BUT, I am too stressed', 'I need to get round to eating the fruit I bought; which I forget about and ends up rotting in the fruit bowl!'

It's not we don't genuinely mean we really do want to change, BUT, it's amazing how; what we say we want to do, and what we actually do, can be like two sides of a river with no easy way to cross.

And the pressure we put ourselves under when we don't do the things we said we were going to, well. 

That just fuels the internal chitter chatter to say unkind things, which we hear, which makes us even more likely to decide I will get around to this…….one day

The small tips for setting goals is one step on a road to finding the momentum to start making the changes, we decide are important for us.

If we don't have a goal and a clear plan of how to achieve this goal, and really think why it's important to us, well, it is something we say we want to do……..tomorrow, BUT, tomorrow ends up never coming. For things to change we need to act, even small steps can make a big difference.

Why not set a goal today, something that has meaning for you, and can be accomplished easily, this can help you feel motivated to set another goal tomorrow
