"Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the "someday I'll" philosophy."
If you watch this video below, you'll see that it's the reason why I got started with recording it in the first place...
(NOTE: Yes, I wrote any captions you see in this video. It's called self-deprecation, and it's mostly a healthy thing (I think!).)
What I Wonder...
As I say in the rather rambling, rather long video above - and I must remember to not speak in such a patronising tone, sometimes (oops!) - I HAVE been thinking about doing The Weekly Wonder in video format for some time. For maybe 6 months, even. And that is a long time to think about doing something without doing it.
And why have I only just got around to doing it now?
Could it be I didn't have enough time before, or could it be that I was frightened of success (whatever 'success' means)?
I don't know - I don't have all the answers, even about myself! ;-)
I do know that I'm glad I got started, even if my video could have made its point in 1 minute rather than 5.
So I'm glad - VERY! - that The Weekly Wonder videos have now started (and finished - now completed 52 videos). And I'm really glad you're watching and reading, and hopefully getting involved somehow.
Procrastination is nobody's friend, nobody's!
And we all should do as much as we can to encourage ourselves to stop hiding behind our fears, to take action, as well as encourage those people in our lives who are procrastinating too.
...Anyway, this is a long, long way of saying "welcome" to you.
Yes, I am prone to ramble.
Would love to hear your rambles too.
