I’ve often wondered lately if I am on a bit of a self-destructive path of late and not entirely sure I haven’t gone off the deep end but haven’t yet acknowledged it to myself.
Something is keeping me stuck and I really don’t know how to fix it on my own.
The lack of meaningful in real life friendships is really bothering me, and has been for a long time.
The lack of inspiring work is really bothering me.
The lack of energy and motivation is really bothering me.
The excess of procrastination in my life is really bothering me.
The lack of self-discipline is really bothering me.
I googled overcoming procrastination this morning in an effort to at least make an attempt to try and fix what’s wrong with me.
I found some potentially helpful articles over at Steve Pavlina.com: Personal Development for Smart People.
The behavior pattern of procrastination can be triggered in many different ways, so you won’t always procrastinate for the same reason. Sometimes you’ll procrastinate because you’re overwhelmed with too much on your plate, and procrastination gives you an escape. Other times you’ll feel tired and lazy, and you just can’t get going.
There’s also a 5-part series on Self-Discipline

My husband knows I’m struggling and have been for a long time. There’s so much potential stored up inside me, but there’s this HUGE barrier to it. That huge barrier? Me. I am my own worst enemy. I am standing in my own way, and have been ignoring that basic fact and I think it’s time I start doing something about it before I really cause some damage in my life.
