‘Procrastination is the bad habit of putting off until the day after tomorrow what should have been done the day before yesterday.’ Napoleon Hill.
This does make me smile. Up until the age of nearly forty, I tended to procrastinate.
To make up for my procrastination, I would then binge paint, or do things in great bursts of energy, lacking any real rhythm or consistency which played havoc with me and my work.
I would write long letters to people, and then not send them! What was I thinking????
Then, everything changed. When I was almost forty, I made a personal commitment to establish rhythms in my life. Rhythms and schedules that would work for me.
The suspect word ‘moderation’ came into my daily life and with it I found that I was able to accomplish so much more.
With new habits, life in general became more manageable and enjoyable.
As time went by, I recognised that rhythms and routines can and do evolve with the inevitable changes we experience in life….after all, nothing is set in stone.
