    in Family

    II have been called neuortic this week, by a book.  I've also been called out on my procrastinating ways.  I've known about the procrastinating for a long time.  I've just not done much about it. Hah!  Being called neurotic is new.  I don't like it, but the more I read, the more I knew the book made sense.  The good news is that the book also gives solutions to overcome it's diagnosis of my issues, and that's what we will be talking about today.  Come find out if you are a bit neurotic or maybe you have a character disorder.  Maybe you'll decide to do something about it and we can go on this journey together.  In any case, we would love to have you join us today as we look at how to create a better life.

    Listen in as JT shares some simple, straight-forward strategies for overcoming procrastination by obliterating the myth of "perfection".

    Goofing Off During Spring Break

    in Comedy

    It's finally Spring and Matt-Man and Jayman are ready to bask in the warmth and sweat out the humidity. The first thing you have to do during spring is celebrate Spring Break. You don't have to be a student to celebrate either. All you have to do is be willing to engage in excessive partying and immature high jinks. If you're not willing to do that then why are you here? (Please stay anyway.)

    Matt and Jay are also really into March Madness. They've analyzed the matchups and will be watching the first two rounds with great interest. They'll tell you what has happened so far and why it happened and then what will happen in the Sweet 16 and Elite 8 and beyond! Plus other unconventional predictions and analysis.

    Sunday is also National Goofing Off Day! If ever a holiday was created with Matt and Jay in mind it's this one! They'll explain the art of goofing off to everyone. No two people on Earth can come up with more reasons NOT to do what they should be doing than Matt and Jay. This show might be every procrastinator's dream. Be prepared to take notes people!

    As always Canadian Bureau Chief Jamie Mapleleaf and the IWS Players will be along too. They'll put a smile on your face and bring nothing bun sunshine to your hearts. And as always the phone lines will be open and buzzing as we take your calls at 661.244.9852!

    Developing a Game Plan to Overcome Procrastination, Pt 6 (Get Things Done! #13)

    in Motivation

    As we begin, let me give you this reminder from the Word of God. Proverbs 13:4 says: "The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat."

    Our quote for today is from Jaachynma Agu. She said: "Satisfaction in life doesn't jump on you. You work for it, you earn it. You will not sit in a place, fold your hands and expect to be satisfied with life.”

    Today, we are continuing with Part 6 of our section titled, "Developing a Game Plan to Overcome Procrastination".

    In our last episode, we talked about the option of keeping a journal as a way to motivate yourself to accomplish the things you have been postponing. In this episode, Edwin Bliss shares with us the option of talking to yourself as a way to motivate yourself to get things done.
    When you find yourself repeatedly postponing something you know you should do, go to a private room and talk to yourself out loud as if you were the proverbial Dutch uncle. Be blunt, direct, honest. Ask yourself what is going on, and why you have failed to do things that you know should be done. But don't just make it an exercise in self-flagellation: your message is not "I am a slob," or "I am a no-good procrastinator." Instead, it should be along the lines of, "This continuing procrastination is unacceptable, and it's going to end immediately. Here is what I am going to do to get started..."
    Tell yourself what you are going to do, not what you should do. Commit yourself to a specific action at a specific time. Make it a pep talk: assure yourself that you can do it. End on a positive note.

    Developing a Game Plan to Overcome Procrastination, Pt 4 (Get Things Done! #11)

    in Motivation

    Proverbs 22:29 says: "Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men."

    Our quote for today is from Scott Belsky. He said: "It's not about ideas. It's about making ideas happen."

    Today, we are continuing with Part 4 of our section titled, "Developing a Game Plan to Overcome Procrastination". 

    In order to get momentum, is it always a good idea to "ease in" to a task, doing the simplest and most pleasant part first?

    Usually it is, but sometimes the exact opposite works. Sometimes it pays to identify the most difficult part and take care of it first. I call this the Worst First approach.

    That doesn't make sense. You can't have it both ways. If one way works, the other one shouldn't.

    Actually, there are three ways of reacting when you are confronted with a complex task. One way is to get your foot in the door by doing the easiest part first and building some momentum. The second is to tackle the hardest part first and get the smug feeling that comes from getting something unpleasant out of the way as soon as possible (the old idea of eating your spinach first and your strawberry shortcake second). The third way -- the way of the procrastinator -- is to do neither, just leaving the task in limbo because it is unpleasant and because instead of choosing either of those plans of action you've chosen a plan of avoidance.

    Suppose you have a group of volunteers, each of whom is supposed to call a list of people for donations to a political campaign. This is the kind of task most people find distasteful.

    It’s Not Procrastination It’s Proactination!

    in Business

    An overarching theme that you will hear me come back to again and again is Importance vs. Urgency.  Steven Covey, who wrote “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” first came up with the concept. It is important to learn to understand and separate importance and urgency. Once you comprehend this you can act accordingly to completely change your results.  Many of my clients get so caught up in the urgent tasks that important tasks are completely neglected.  On the other side of the spectrum are people that find the urgent tasks overwhelming so the TOP of their to do list never gets done but the tasks further down do.  By focusing on tasks with less urgency, they are able to procrastinate on the tasks at the top of the list.  Joining me to talk about structured procrastination (avoiding the most important tasks) is Dr. John Perry: Philosopher, Professor, Author, and Master Procrastinator.
