Do You Have a Doctorate in Procrastination?

I started last year going to places in Kloof and Hillcrest that I had never been to before. I wanted to do this as places open and close so frequently these days and it is also important to support local. There are quite a few places on my list to go to this year and i'm sad to say that one of those places has already closed its doors.This started me thinking about procrastination (I was in the shower at the time, which is often a place where I compose blog posts in - no singing for me).

noun: procrastination; plural noun: procrastinations
  1. the action of delaying or postponing something

So my question to you is "Do you have a doctorate in procrastination?" Because I do!!

You know that well known saying "Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today." Well I think many things should be put off until tomorrow or even longer especially if they affect the important things in life. No procrastination for spending time with your parents, your kids, your close friends or even your pets. Life is short! Don't look back over your life and say "If only."

I am in the process of going through all the cupboards in our house and having a big chuck out. Things that I have been holding onto for years are being donated to Hospice. Things that I had been keeping "just in case" or "might be needed" are going out. It is such a freeing feeling.

Things in our houses and our minds can weigh us down. Why don't you sit down (with a cup of coffee) and think about what could be weighing you down. Make your procrastination list and start tackling it one item at a time. I can think of quite a few things that I need to put on mine - like making an appointment for the gyni. Clear the clutter in your house and clear the clutter in your mind.

Are you going to tackle procrastination with me in 2017?
