Put off all you can except what matters

Procrastination is the art of remembering what matters.

Put off all you can as long as you can.  Worry not as what needs to get done, gets done.

This quick EFTI post is based on this Daily Prompt: Wasted Days and Wasted Nights  Tell us your tried and true techniques for focusing when that deadline looms and you need to get work done. In other words, how do you avoid wasted days and wasted nights?

As noted above, procrastination is remembering what matters and focusing on that means not days or nights are wasted.

I was heading into my fifties when I realized I needed a bit of time pressure to do my best work; procrastination worked in my favor. This Poster Coach now sums up my views on the subject. It is today’s free poster coach.

Seven Reasons to Procrastinate.

If procrastination makes you fret and fume, you have two choices. Stop procrastinating or strengthen your self-soothing skills.  Learning the art of Sloganeering helps with that. So here is another free Poster Coach.

STAY STRONG

I can’t tell you how much I love shopping. Not for what I buy, mostly food or toys for the grands.  No, it is for the opportunity to josh or flirt with the humans operating the cash registers. Hate that technology has dwindled the number of people taking my money.

One of my favorite lines and usually in response to the  “Did you find everything you wanted?”  now required of most cashiers.

My “Get a laugh” response:  “No. (pause for effect)  I am still looking for the million dollars needed to keep up with the cost of living. Guess you haven’t found it either.”

Always gets a surprised look and a laugh that makes my day.

Me Jealous? Sadly, Yes.

Daily Prompt: Green-Eyed Lady We all get jealous from time to time — what wakes the green-eyed monster for you?

Those who are part of our success are often left out of the rewards we reap.

Thank you Stu’s views.

I chose this cartoon because success is never a one person show.

I have big dreams, work hard, but have had no monetary success when it comes to Emotional Fitness Training, Inc. – what I think of as my third child.  What wakens the Green Eyed Monster in me?  The success of those who have the money needed to do things like hire editors, illustrators, web masters, and publicists.  These have a team and I don’t.  I am a woman alone in my efforts.

My green eyes glow stronger when celebrities act like experts telling the rest of us how easy it is to do this or that.

Enough time on my pity-pot.

Staying emotionally strong

I combat the Green-eyed monster by practicing what I preach.  I practice all the Daily Twelve Easy Exercises every day and over and over again.  I start the day being grateful for all I have been given.  I go through my day thanking people;  I know my mission; I laugh and play, seek beauty; I honor those who gift me; I indulge in healthy pleasures; I move my body.

I also remind myself jobs are what you are paid to do.  Although I would love to be better paid, life is about doing what you love to do when, where ever, and however you can.  I am grateful I can do all I do whether or not monetary success comes to me and Emotional Fitness Training.

So pursue your passions and hope for a little bit of luck along the way.

Thank you all for all you do to care and share with others. Doing a little matters a lot. Doing more matters more.

Teachers lie: growing old is not a choice. Nor is going back.  The best one can do is be grateful for your now,  cultivate as many good memories as you can, and whatever your age set SMART Goals. Here’s how to do that:

This post was inspired by this Daily Prompt: If I could Turn Back Time  If you could return to the past to relive a part of your life,which part of you life would you return to? Why?

Probably somewhere between 50 and 60. Why, my body and brain would be functioning well and I would have all the good memories. No, that wouldn’t work, because I would not know the joy of being a grandparent. Now is all we have, I am grateful mine is as good as it is.
