Don’t Put Off Reading This Post About Procrastination

Solving the Procrastination Puzzle

Solving the Procrastination PuzzleThere aren’t many resources that I couldn’t live without, but this is one of them. It’s all about procrastination.

Tim Pychyl, Ph.D.  is the Director of the Centre for Initiatives in Education and an Associate Professor of Psychology at Carleton University in Ottawa.  Tim’s website, Procrastination Research Group is packed with helpful resources to help people better understand and deal with procrastination.

His podcasts feature various experts who study the subject and he also interviews regular folk who have developed strategies to overcome the challenge.  If you struggle with procrastination I urge you to visit his site, pick up his book (pictured here), give the podcasts a listen, check out the research and even have a laugh.

He admits to his own bouts with procrastination and in doing so removes much of the stigma we may attach to the problem.  Almost everyone I know procrastinates about something. In fact as I write this I truly can’t think of one person who doesn’t, including me.

Procrastination can perhaps be overcome entirely though I’ve not seen that happen. What I have seen is that through techniques like the ones Tim shares, (and others you can find on my site) you can get much much better at controlling it. And that’s a pretty good outcome, too.

Ideal Worklife Strategy Session

Being in leadership, you have enormous responsibility and yet few with whom to discuss personal or sensitive work issues.

It makes sense. Being at the top of the org chart, who, internally, do you reach out to when focused on your own professional development? Or when dealing with confidential challenges?

If that sounds familar, you’re not the first or only leader to be in that position! Clients reach out when they need a coach and confidant to help them step up their own game and/or handle workplace issues and improvements.

Feel like something you might benefit from? Let’s talk. In this complimentary  strategy session, we look at how things are for you right now and what changes you’d like to see. After our conversation, you’ll have a clearer idea where you want to go from here.

Use the calendar to set up your session.
