Heat wave? More like Ice Age with an annoyingly cold wind!!!
Its summer, then its not, then its summer, then its not …………. Come on weather please stop procrastinating and get on with it!!! 🙂
If you sometimes feel like the procrastination of the British summer? then please read on……………
Do I wear sandals or boots? Do I wear a summer dress or light jumper? One minute the sun is out, the next it’s practically going back into the Ice Age and hailing!!!
I have a smile on my face as I am writing this as it so reminds me of the procrastination of people when they have a dream that they want to pursue but have no clue how to tackle it. and we all do I am sure.
Walt Disney once said –
“All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them!”
Meaning that you can have anything if you are brave e enough to go after it!
So what do you want to go after? How will you start to achieve it? What will you do if you fail? Email me and we can get started. I can accelerate the time to which you achieve this dream. 🙂
Let’s talk about procrastination for a minute …. The meaning of procrastination is:
The act of procrastinating; putting off or delaying or deferring an action to a later time
And this art seems to be within all of us, however small or large this issue may be……….
Have you ever had a task at work or in life that seems so onerous and over whelming that you have put it off until it becomes urgent? So not only does it seem un-achievable it also needs to be completed yesterday? And then if only you had started planning this weeks ago, then you would not be feeling the stress that you are feeling now?
So the obstacle here has been you! And if you had the ability to change your mindset and try!! Try at this onerous task and to hell with the consequences, then who knows you may well have succeeded!!
I actually love the quote from the Entrepreneur, Sara Blakely – Addicted2success.com where she says this about her childhood –
“My Dad encouraged us to fail growing up; he would ask us what we failed at that week. If we didn’t have something, he would be disappointed. It changed my mindset at an early age that failure is not the outcome, failure is not trying. Don’t be afraid to fail!”
If you happen to fail, you can then learn by your mistakes and do something different next time, and so we can also learn by our failures to move forward with haste the next time an onerous task hits us between the eyes. 🙂 whatever it may be………
As Albert Einstein has quoted many times before in his definition of Insanity:
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results “
Meaning that we must all learn from failure, try something new next time! Just as we must all learn that the British weather will never change, it will always be the same so if we really want some new weather for summer, and have sun for at least 2 weeks, (or a correct forecast of summer weather) we must sit up and do something about it for ourselves. 🙂 Procrastinate no longer and book a holiday, or go and live abroad as you once wanted to do many moons ago, but never seemed to make it, or stay here and accept that anything can happen in Summer. 🙂
Whatever your dreams, you can achieve or at least try to achieve…………. Without trying you will never know what could have been.
Have a wonderful June and think about the words above. Digest them and think about what you truly want in life. Email me if you need a hand. 🙂
See you in July, hopefully at the Femesque Cheese and wine on Wednesday 10th July.
