The Procrastinator’s #1 Favorite Task

procrastinating with email

procrastinationSee if this scenario sounds familiar…

You’re at work and you’ve got your To Do list. It’s prioritized with the most important tasks at the top of the list and you’re just about ready to jump in and Get Stuff Done.  But the first task is something you’re not really fond of doing. So, you decide it would be a good idea to check email just to make certain something more important hasn’t come in that would take precedence over the unpleasant #1 task already on your list.

And there it is.

You’re not checking email because you need to — you’re checking email because it’s a “legal” way of putting off doing things you know you should be doing.  You know how I know this?  Because I’ve done it, too.

Sure, e-mail can be intrusive but just as often you manufacture the intrusion as a procrastination technique. It’s something to note about yourself and make some adjustments if you see yourself falling into that trap.  In this case, awareness — and calling yourself out on it — is often enough to stop doing it.

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.
