Avoiding Tip o the day18

What is the difference between avoiding and procrastinating?

It may be  subtle, but for me, procrastinating is putting off starting something that I will eventually need to do,

while avoiding is avoiding something that I may never get around to.

Maybe procrastinating is a sub type of avoiding?

It helps me just to be aware of what I am doing, so I have a card where I list the things I am avoiding.  I check it and face the issue frequently, and that helps.

The other strategies for getting started, overcoming procrastinating, and avoiding avoiding are all about the same – first start with breaking it into small steps.

I’ll give a few more of these strategies in tip 19.

It’s all explained in detail in Your Life Can Be Better.

The book is getting closer and closer to coming out, 2011!
