Overcoming Procrastination: My Journey Towards Achieving Goals

Procrastinating? Who holds you accountable to keep you moving in the direction you want to? with an image of Alfie's ears and his reflection in a mirror

I purposely did not make any 'New Years Resolutions' but I did set some intentions for myself for the year back in January.

As I sit down to reflect on my journey so far this year, I can't help but feel a mixture of excitement and frustration. It's already April, and while I had ambitious goals set for myself, I find that I'm not making the progress I had hoped for. The vision I had at the beginning of the year feels distant, overshadowed by the weight of procrastination and self-doubt.

One thing I've learned on this journey is the importance of accountability. I'm fortunate to have coaches who support and challenge me, holding me accountable to the goals I've set. Their guidance has been invaluable, pushing me to step outside of my comfort zone and strive for excellence. Yet, despite their encouragement, there's one area where I've been struggling to take action: reaching out to professionals who I believe can help me further my goals.

Why is it that we often procrastinate on the very tasks that could propel us forward to achieving our goals? For me, it's a combination of fear of rejection, uncertainty about the outcome, and the comfort of familiarity. Stepping into the unknown requires courage, and sometimes it's easier to stay within the confines of what we know, even if it means sacrificing our dreams.

But I refuse to let procrastination stand in the way of my aspirations. I know that growth lies beyond my comfort zone, and that true progress requires taking action, even when it's uncomfortable. So today, I'm making a commitment to myself to overcome procrastination and reach out to those professionals who I believe can help me on my journey.

It won't be easy. There will be moments of doubt and hesitation. But I refuse to let fear dictate my future. I choose courage. I choose resilience. I choose to pursue my goals with unwavering determination.

To anyone else who may be struggling with procrastination, know that you're not alone. It's okay to feel overwhelmed, but don't let that paralyse you into inaction. Take one small step at a time, and before you know it, you'll be closer to your goals than you ever thought possible.

So here's to embracing discomfort, stepping into the unknown, and making progress, one brave decision at a time. The journey may be challenging, but the rewards are more than worth it. Let's do this together.
