Let’s talk about procrastination.
Garden variety procrastination is something we all do at times, and it’s not always harmful — though in the aftermath of a sink full of dishes or a much-delayed call to your mother, I’m sure you always wonder, “Why didn’t I just do this in the first place?“
Procrastinating around a big decision, however, can be deadly — and in some cases can even stop you from making the decision altogether. But don’t be mistaken: not choosing is a choice in itself.
Think about a career shift. Every single day you spend in your current reality is another day spent climbing your ladder towards a higher position. Further building and cementing your relationships in your current industry. Digging yourself deeper into a hole.
You wouldn’t believe the number of people I’ve coached who share with me that they wished they’d begun their transition earlier, when they first realized it was what they wanted, before they got this promotion or that raise.
Think about where you’d be now if you said yes to your true calling.
I believe that if you really want something, deep at your core, you’ll make it happen. I see this in my coaching practice everyday with the incredible folks I’m working with to create massive, powerful, purpose-driven change in their lives and careers.
So I ask you — what have you been holding off on accomplishing that you think you want? Do you really want it? And if so, what are you waiting for?
