Increase Your Success Momentum with Celebration

What do you think of when you hear the word celebration?  Do you picture extravagance?  Or maybe you think of lots and lots of people getting together for a party.  Maybe you even think of a fireworks display. Sometimes, extravagance with lots of people (and possibly fireworks!) is the perfect way to celebrate!  And, sometimes, a quiet walk on the beach with your significant other or 15 minutes to read a chapter in a book is the perfect way to celebrate something you have

3 Procrastination Busters

“I’m taking care of my procrastination
issues; just you wait and see.”

“Procrastinator?  No.  I just wait until
 the last second to do my work because
 I’ll be older, therefore wiser.”

I love these two quotes!

Procrastination is something most of us deal with at least once in a while and quite possibly this is something you handle frequently or all the time.  Procrastination usually hits us at the worst possible time, right when we have a DEADLINE looming.  There are all kinds of reasons why we procrastinate.  We’re too busy, we’re too overwhelmed or we don’t having enough time are common reasons why we wait until the last minute to finish certain tasks.
