I Keep Doing This

I have a weakness. I have a major flaw. My lack of diligence along with proper communication have been affecting my life and my ability to do what I needed to do for my family. Most people like me often think reactively by reacting to certain events and hoping things will be fixed. that don't always work as I am learning in the past few weeks. Many of us are not particularly good at taking charge of our future, our health, our relationships, our career, our finances,and our life. We tend to spend our life reacting to events, situations and circumstances, rather than creating and shaping them. Reactive life is boring but very dramatic, frustrating, painful, unrewarding, unfulfilling and illogical.

Being proactive means that instead of merely reacting to events as they happen, you consciously engineer your own events. Being proactive usually means dealing with discomfort, lack of support, fear and even resistance from others.

One cure for procrastination is more diligence, regardless of the task. The dictionary defines PROCRASTINATE as "to put off intentionally and habitually the doing of something that should be done."
