Putting things off – Best Boot Forward #5

Putting things off is on my mind today and it appears I have even put off the Best Boot Forward weekly post until late evening.

Putting Things Off

Putting things off can certainly bring us a lot of pleasure if we want to avoid something. However, in  the end the task or situation at hand will catch up with us. Perhaps that means putting things off is a negative thing.

However, although we might commonly associate putting things off with negative things, we should ask ourselves if we are also putting off the good stuff. We can really make some powerful  arguments as to why we want to do something  but can’t just yet. It is almost as if some of us are scared of being happy and/or following our dreams. We too easily take that huge gamble that we have all the time in the world when the truth is none of us can know that.

So my questions for you to reflect on this week if it helps you at all are ..

  1. What are you putting off?
  2. How does putting it off make you feel?
  3. What would happen if you took action instead of procrastinating?
  4. How risky is the gamble you are taking by putting something off?

I will be answering these myself and posting later this week.

If you blog about how you are improving your life one baby step at a time, please link up with us. You don’t have to answer the questions or even think about them so long as you have a post about positive life change, you are welcome to the Best Boot Forward linky.

    What have I been putting off? Writing about my anxiety! Pushing that publish button was so hard but feel so much better for it. On a positive, so pleased I found this page and the linkie. A really lovely group 🙂
