It is interesting how procrastinating can have value and also act as an excuse.

Timing is important. We can only do something when we feel ready. It’s perfectly acceptable to wait until it is the right time, until we are in the right place. But sometimes we won’t ever be in the ‘right place’, so waiting isn’t necessarily going to give us that arrival.

It’s important to reflect on why we are procrastinating, and be aware of the obstacles or excuses we are putting in the way, the reasons we are putting something off, if it’s something we really want. Recognising when we need to make ourselves do something, make an initial step, rather than saying it isn’t the right time is the difficulty.

How much we are willing to focus time and energy on moving towards the things we want, often depends on realising their value.This is when how much we want something can become a driver.

Coaching focuses us on what we want rather than what we think we should do/want and helps us tap into creative energy through motivation, into momentum, to make the right time and take action.
