Do you ever find it difficult to stay focused throughout the course of a long day? It happens to the best of us. Sometimes, the monotony of the workday just drags on and our minds begin to wander… like when you’re watching a baseball game and it’s tied at one in the seventh inning. Nothing really exciting happened after that home run by your favorite player in the first. He’s your favorite player because, once, when you were younger, he… wait… What were we talking about again?
Do you suffer from the dreaded disease, “puttingthingsofftilthelastminuteitus?” Do you have trouble getting started when it comes to overwhelming tasks? Many people do. In fact, only one in ten Americans achieve everything they set out to do each day. Sometimes it just takes one ‘iceberg’ task to sink all of your good intentions. You put it off until after lunch, then move it to the end of the day, and finally… first thing to tomorrow. Eventually, your ‘to do’ list becomes more like a novel. Your stress rises. Stress and procrastination affect your mental and physical health. And things go downhill from there.
