"The more I want to get something done, the less I call it work." ~ Richard Bach

Ever noticed that the time it takes worrying about a project you haven't completed takes even more time than actually doing the task? Tomorrow, says the procrastinator.

Tommorrow.

"By and by never comes," said St. Augustine in his Confessions.

The agony of guilt, the dread of deadlines, the remorse of responsibilities, all cost more than actually doing the deed.

"Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task," observed writer and philosopher William James.

Yes, it's tough starting a job you don't like. It's a challenge when you're busy and overwhelmed with the tasks. Why stress yourself out? If you've been procrastinating, here are some ways to move forward, without delay:

Make a to-do list;

Set realistic goals and objectives;

Break your goal down to manageable tasks;

Celebrate the tasks at hand and try to make them more meaningful; and

Promise yourself a reward when you are done.

"Lord help me to do with a smile those things I have to do anyway," admitted Hollywood producer Hal Roach.

Just do it.
