Here's a thought that came up in a conversation with a client this afternoon about procrastination.
If you find yourself getting bogged down in procrastination, how about finding a procrastination partner? It would be a simple way for both of you to introduce some accountability into the picture to keep you both moving forward.
Each week, you could tell each other one thing you've been procrastinating on, and commit to getting it done in the week to come. Then the following week you tell each other how it went.
You could get together face to face to talk about it all, or it could be as simple as a telephone check-in.
However you do it, the basic idea is that you're committing your intent to do something out loud to someone else. And if you don't do it, you'll have to fess up to it. It creates an accountability loop that's missing when we just tell ourselves, "I'll do this today - no, really, I will." It's much easier to just let things slide when nobody else is party to our intentions.
Could you use a procrastination partner? If so, who can you ask?
