Shannon’s Method: Overcome Habit Procrastination -Leo Babauta, Zen Habits
While I was in school, and starting clinical practice, I used to think that I was busy, and I definitely was. Then I gave birth to three wonderful little boys and suddenly the definition of busy has changed. While I often dream of lazy mornings, coffee cup in hand, reality paints a different picture, and procrastinating with that pile of laundry is never a good idea.
While a little more free time might be just what the doctor ordered, one of the most important lessons I have taken from this whole “mom” thing is the concept of “NOW”. As in, don’t wait until later to sweep the crumbs off the floor, do it now before they become someone’s unintentional lunch. Or perhaps maybe it’s best to wipe the sticky peanut butter of so-and-so’s hand right now, opposed to after he’s left the table. But more importantly, maybe NOW is the time to prioritize spending some precious minutes with my little ones, before it is gone.
While being busy definitely has it’s challenges, and completing all on my list is the impossible dream, being short on time has taught me the valuable lesson of not waiting until tomorrow, but to make the most of the time I have today.
Our best article of the week, written by Leo Babauta of Zen Habits, speaks to humanity’s tendency towards procrastination. Most all our clients want to be healthier, more fit, and less stressed, but developing the habits to reach these ideals can be daunting. While we can provide the tools to achieve these goals, emphasizing for our clients the power of “NOW”, or to quote the fitness apparel giant, “just do it”, may be the difference between wanting and doing. After all, the best way to get something done is to begin.
