Getting Around to Procrastination Day

National Procrastination Day – September 6, 2016

It’s almost here. The time to take charge. The time to say to yourself, “I’m finally going to do this.”

Yes, September 6 is National Fight Procrastination Day. As an added, cruel twist of fate, the day falls on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend when we are supposed to focus on what we do—not what we don’t do.

It’s the occasion when people get a temporary shot of inspiration and start spewing famous quotes our mothers told us like “never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.” Or the stinging question, “do you know what happens when you give a procrastinator a good idea? Nothing.”

So if procrastination is opportunity’s assassin, we better start dodging the bullets. It’s time to get around to recognizing this national day that I am certain was not created by slackers. I invite you – no, I challenge you – to list the top five things you have been avoiding and how you are going to tackle them. Five is manageable. If it were 10, you just may not get the ball rolling.

Five Organization Tasks I have been Avoiding

Here are mine:

  1. Organize my handbags in my closet
  2. Get fall purses ready
  3. Use a Purse Perfector to sort supplies in my sewing basket
  4. Organize my granddaughter’s Shopkins in a Purse Perfector
  5. Figure out what Shopkins are

Obviously, I have a theme and it has to do with continuing to organize my life with Purse Perfector. What are your action items for National Fight Procrastination Day?

Well, my procrastination gene kicked in full-force and I wasn’t able to post this blog about National Fight Procrastination Day until the day after! I’ll be better next year…
