I have a confession to make -
'I have been actively in the process of writing my biography for over 12 months now and it is NO-Where near being completed.
In fact I have started and stopped this book so many times that I have lost count of. The drive to write it is there, but sometimes ( a lot of the time) procrastination rolls in and
weeks have gone past and I haven't even so much as placed my cursor near the file on my desktop.
It's been a shambles really. I mean the rest of my career is going gang-busters, I have jobs coming in, my talks are going extremely well, and the feedback is awesome. I have developed a workshop on public speaking, a learning guide, I am in the throws of developing a new keynote on critical decision making .... yet me book, perhaps the most important project of all has just been sitting there gathering dust (metaphorically of course .... unless the computer file and gather dust?!?).
I am making myself accountable to you and to you and to you. I am going to finish this book.
It now has a title .... but the only clue I will give is it has the word "ditch" in it.
It has a publication date - the first of may, 2014.
a date in concrete, a date to aim for, strive for, a date that is etched on my forehead, a date that is the top of my goal list. Could it be? My book is me next Paralympic Games?
What is a goal you have been procrastinating on? Why are you procrastinating? Do you know how to stop the procrastination?
Take a hint from above - set a date and work for that ..... history, for me anyway, suggests this works.
