Procrastination: The Enemy of Achievement

A few weeks ago, I was listening to my health coaching client, Brian (not his real name), explain the reasons why he had put off accomplishing several of his weekly health and wellness goals. His reasons all made perfectly good sense. He had some last-minute client needs pop up. He hadn’t slept well for a few nights and was feeling less productive than usual. He didn’t know what he wanted to say in one of his communications to a client. You get the picture. Anyway, after we had a chance to discuss this further, we came to a mutual realization: Brian’s tendency towards procrastination was habitual, and it was time for us to address it head on.
