Procrastinate: build character

Procrastination is a useful tool for building character,  emotional fitness or what  some call emotional intelligence.  Here is how to Procrastinate like a Pro.

Seven Reasons to Procrastinate.

Hope you laughed a tiny bit, but I am not really joking. In today’s over-burdened world learning to procrastinate is a major emotional fitness skill.  It does, however need to be done with some thought, particularly if you need your job and putting the wrong things off could get you fired.

A personal status update

I need anyone who follows me and expects a post a day to know that I am not procrastinating, however, I am making some changes as I need to focus a bit better.

First change: Moving home and office, in less than a week, so must stop procrastinating the packing up chores.

Second change: Need to write more.  New eBook needs last edit and need to attend to that.

Third change: Until moved, unpacked, and the next book is edited no long Emotional Fitness Training Posts.  Instead will use my EFTI Poster Coaches to give you something to think about, maybe something laugh about, or a way to be with beauty.

Not sure what a poster coach is or how to use it. Well here is one of the most popular ones:

Practice Kindness Emotional Fitness Poster Coach

And here is a comment by Jean Tracy of Kids Discuss and a major guru when it comes to building character and teaching social skills to children: “I appreciate how your Kindness Poster shares so many important social skills. It would look great on many fridges as a reminder to family members.”

What works for kids also works for adults.  Poster coaches encourage practice of one of the Twelve Easy Emotional Fitness Exercises. Most focus on Thinking About What Matters.   Here are other ideas for using them.

  1. Frame and hang at home, in classrooms or office
  2. Add to bulletin boards
  3. Use as workshop handouts
  4. Use for workbook covers
  5. Use as rewards
  6. Give as gifts

Enough said. I need to stop procrastinating and start packing.

Stay strong, I am trying and as usual thank you for sharing and caring.

P.S. This post relates in a small way to this Word Press Daily Prompt: Tell us about a favorite character from film, theater, or literature, with whom you’d like to have a heart-to-heart. What would you talk about?

The Procrastinate like a Pro Poster is what I would talk about, but I put off thinking about a procrastinator in a film and wrote this post instead.  Just how my aging mind works.

Agree or disagree, comments are always welcomed.
