Teamwork:  Sense of purpose, solid goals, improved individual and group performance, increased productivity, increased creativity, increased sense of employee motivation and belonging.

By Joe McKenna

Procrastination builds guilt and stress. I call it the ‘shoes on the stairs’ factor. You know, you’ve left a pair of shoes on the stairs and then you step around them each time you climb the stairs. If you’re like most of us, when spotting them—again—you think to yourself “Next time I’ll put them away” or “I wish s/he would put them away”. You tolerate and accommodate… and pay the price in lost productivity and peace of mind.

Many of us are plagued by procrastination:
• The difficult phone call we need to make but won’t.
• The business plan we need to complete but haven’t.
• The daily goals we’ve been meaning to set but don’t.

When we could have, would have, should have, but haven’t—we waste time, build stress, and lose respect—in our own eyes and in the eyes of others. Why do we procrastinate? Sometimes it’s fear. Sometimes it’s a lack of commitment. Sometimes we’re too busy, which means we aren’t clear it’s really all that important. Sometimes we procrastinate on things we said “Yes” to when we really wanted to say “No”.

Our behavioral styles influence what we procrastinate about and why. Unstructured people may delay starting a project because they’re jumping from task to task. Highly detailed people may delay finishing a project because they keep finding one more detail to polish.

Whatever our styles, we can beat the procrastination problem. It is a matter of habit and choice. Our choice.

When you find yourself procrastinating on something, make a choice. Do it or drop it. Don’t waffle. Stop pretending you’ll do it ’one of these days’. Get on with it, get through it, get out of it, or get over it. You’ll feel better, and work better. The choice is up to you.
