    Indeed. Action is contagious. Once I start something, I like to be able to see it through. When I don't do something, I get out of the grove and continue to put it off.

    It seems like a cakewalk but for a serial procrastinator it's really difficult to ACT.... I have been a procrastinator for many years, recently I developed a technique known as " Pressure-cooker situation", which can be a great help for procrastinators. The word " Action" seems obvious but those who are a procrastinator actually know how strange it not to act and waste time.

    Action towards a specific objective that strongly appeals to you is truly it. Of course, before you can act, you should know what you want.

    When you know exactly what you want and don't sabotage yourself by believing you can't get it (or don't deserve it!), then the next step is always to get going, take action.

    Thanks!

    Actually many procrastinators do take action. They just wait until the last minute to do it.

    i think the key is to take even a small step in the right direction to get you started. Sometimes procrastinators wait until everything is absolutely right before taking action the problem is everything is never always right

    People with a serious problem taking consistent action might be afraid of success, and sometimes require the aid of a therapist or coach to get moving.

    Action isn't enough. It takes passion for your life purpose first. Without realizing your purpose or your life's calling it's often impossible to take action. People pursue goals for various reasons, often the wrong reasons. Then when they try and carry out these goals they find no inner motivation and that makes "taking action" impossible. Tanking action is a major chore when there is no inner reward for it. The inner reward comes when we figure out what it is we're supposed to be doing with our lives.

    Once an individual has discovered his or her life's purpose procrastination isn't a problem at all. People under the influence of "purpose" don't need artificial motivators because there isn't enough time in the day to do all they'd like to do.

      Taking action.. well the secret is in taking the right action. I've been taking action for weeks, sometimes months in the past, only to find out it was a completely useless action based on wrong advice.
      So before taking any action, just make sure it is the right one, or you will not get anywhere.

      Agree completely - thank you so much for this. For me, I find I'm on the right track when I have to "go the extra mile" for a project and I'm so invested in it and love it so much that it doesn't FEEL like "the extra mile"!
