The End of Procrastination

November 8, 2009

The day I left on my two-week book tour to the United States, I learned I still had to provide my German tax accountant with information that would take me a full day to put together. I am not one to procrastinate, but I had to put off her request for almost three weeks while I completed other commitments. Today I assembled all the data. Surprisingly, it only took a few hours.

I applied the slow principle of taking an overwhelming project bit for bit, promising myself I could stop if I completed just one segment. Naturally, I kept going once I was into it. What a great feeling to be able to hand it all in by the first business day since my return.

Gotta love that power of slow. It truly works!
