NOT to Procrastinate
Yoga Journal, Issue 69, Jan 2003, p.36
"The most important thing is not to procrastinate. When a good thought enters your mind, don't postpone acting on it... Postponing what you are inspired to do is the greatest obstacle of your spiritual path. It invites doubt and fear, and then you start questioning whether or not you should do what you were inspired to do. For those who procrastinate, tomorrow never comes, and they miss their opportunity in life. Therefore, do something!
Don't worry too much about whether you are doing the right thing or not. Just decide an act, and if it turns out to be a mistake, it's okay. Learn from it and go on... Procrastination is the greatest enemy in life...Once you decide to do something, you will be able to do it no matter what."
Often, procrastination and inaction limits many of my clients from doing the things that offer them the greatest rewards.
I recommend asking yourself, "What will inspire me today?" It is an important question and you'll find that during your day it's helpful to understand what motivates you and what stops you from moving forward. For example, you may find that subscribing to an e-mail list that sends you a daily motivational quote is helpful. Or you may find that talking over a situation with a friend will help.
The following success formula brings immediate results in your life. It helps stop procrastination and the postponement of taking action.
Momentum + Energy + Action = Results
Each of these facets that make up the above formula reinforces the other. Building momentum creates energy that leads you to take action that gives you more momentum and energy. Soon you'll be doing more and more to create the life you want (or at least more fulfilling results).
Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor for lack of ideas and went bankrupt several times before he built Disneyland. Henry Ford failed and went broke 5 times before he finally succeeded. After looking at what both men went through in order to achieve their dreams, you can begin to realize that successful dream achievement is as much about persistence and determination (and taking action) as it is talent.

That "unrealistic" career ideas might be exactly what I need to get to the "realistic" job that is just what I want.
~ Client #1
Doing one's best is relative. My best today might be different (better/worse) than my best yesterday. Setting an absolute standard for "best" (i.e., I should always be at 100% in this process of searching) is self-defeating.
