My name is John ... I'm 40-something ... and this is my first post on the forum. Several areas of my life are a mess due to pervasive compulsive procrastination, my business being first among them. I'm in danger of losing everything soon, including my home, if I don't quickly become proficient with a lifestyle of taking productive focused action.
Strange. Even as I write that it seems like such a distant and unlikely reality. Something that is so easy to procrastinate taking action on.
I was quite the producer about five years ago. I had numerous employees and a fellowship of colleagues that made moving forward easy. Today I'm almost completely isolated and have no one to hold me accountable to anything anymore. I recently developed a relationship with a fine woman and that's helping a little as she is a go-getter in her career. She's very accepting of me and has made no comments so far about my lack of work-ethic and productivity, even though she's aware of all of it. I'm sure it must be lingering in her somewhere, though.
I signed up for this forum days ago, but already put off my first post because I know my standard is to write long and thoughtful insights ... so procrastinating my first post made perfect sense.
I guess my real outcome here is to introduce myself ... (Hi Everybody!) ... and get my first post handled so I might be more inclined to come several times a week just to post a short message and read posts from whoever I might develop an online friendship with here.
Good luck to you in your new lifestyle. I'm grateful today that you all are here.
