We’ve all been there. Something needs doing today, but you don’t want to do it today. You purposefully do other things to avoid that one thing that really should have your full attention. It’s funny how creative we can become at times like these.
Some people are very good at procrastinating. They really are ‘artists’. Such people cause me a problem – particularly if I am relying on them to fulfill something so that I can then do my part.
We are not talking about being too busy to act – we are talking about a deliberate and wilful act to avoid.
Leaders know that integrity is paramount in leadership. Integrity can have many definitions but today I am thinking about this one: doing what you said you were going to do, when you said you were going to do it by.
Procrastination results in:
- lack of responsibility
- jealousy and frustration from others
Integrity builds (among other things):
- increased effort by team members
- Outward focus
So, if there is something you are putting off, consider the effects that your actions could have on others if you continue to procrastinate.
Cultivate integrity instead.
So what are your first steps going to be?
