I have been putting off this post for a while now. No really. I am not just saying that. I wrote the title and a few notes on October 18, 2010. I am glad that all of my posts are not this late.
It seems I am behind all over the place, especially taking last week off. I am trying to catch up now, but the old maxim is true- it is easier to keep up than catch up. Even the post I have for tomorrow started back at the end of September. Which brings me to 2 questions. 1- Do you procrastinate? Every one does to some extent. 2- Has procrastination caused you to miss out on something that is potentially good?
Back in March of this year when I was gung ho and ready to do anything I got an email from Mike Cliffe-Jones (check out his blog here) about becoming and affiliate of his book The Beginners Guide to Blogging. I joined his “training” course and bought the book. I then got several emails to help sell the thing.
Well it took me a few days to read the book but I never quite got around to putting out emails or promoting the sale anywhere. Including here on my blog. Now, the book is free from his site and I have learned a valuable lesson about internet business and getting things out to market as soon as possible.
I most definitely learned a good lesson, wait too long and the opportunity is gone. I hate to make resolutions because they are so rarely followed. So I am making part of my business plan for 2011 “Do it now! Opportunity won’t wait for you to get off your lazy butt!” I am putting that in big red letters on the wall right above my desk.
Here is a challenge to you all, don’t procrastinate this year. See what you can do if you get things done as they need to be.
I would love to read your comments below and please take the time to share on the social networking sites! Thanks in advance, you readers are why I keep doing this!
