How do I stop getting in my own way? (1/1/18)

“Every day spent procrastinating is another day spent worrying about that thing. 

Do it now, and move on with your life.”


How do I stop getting in my own way?


How do I stop getting in my own way?

You need to figure that out because my friend, you got shft to do✔✔✔


The clock is ticking…

So as I sit her today to write a blog, I realize it’s been well over a month since I wrote my last one☹☹☹

How is that possible I ask myself? 🙄🙄🙄

What the hell was I doing last month?

I wish I could tell you I’ve been travelling the globe and having a fabulous time. 

Or, that I took on a gigantic project which took up all my time! 

And got paid an enormous amount of money for it😇😇😇

Only, that would be a big NO. 

Sure, there was Christmas shopping, decorating the house and all that other holiday stuff. 

Add in, my daily NineFrogs business schedule.

I seriously don’t know?

Which got me thinking?  What the hell WAS I doing?🙄🙄🙄


I know I thought about it often. 

Actually came up with several new ideas in fact for future blogs.

Only problem was, I didn’t actually write them. 😣😣😣

Tomorrow I kept telling myself.  Only, tomorrow turned into tomorrow and so on and so on.

That’s the problem with tomorrow’s, they just keep growing.

Sure, I worked on some new projects, (to be announced soon),  had a couple of new clients. 

Only, I still could have had time to write at least one blog a week. 

But I didn’t. 

I kept putting it off.

That’s the thing about procrastination, we come up with a hundred reasons to rationalize it. 

Reasons such as; no time, I’ll do it tomorrow, next week, next month, it’s not that important, I’ll get to it later, and so on.

We tell ourselves it’s not that big a deal. 

Maybe it’s a phone call you keep putting off? 

A letter to write.

Or an e-mail you need to send. 

Maybe you keep putting off going to the gym? 

You wouldn’t be alone on that one, I believe that is the biggest subject that people procrastinate on. 

And let’s be honest here, no one HAS the time to go to the gym, you MAKE the time to go to the gym! 


A few years back, as I walked into the gym on a hot Summer night,

looking like I wanted to be anywhere but at the gym,

the guy at the front desk looks at me and says,

“Patti, you have to change your attitude about going to the gym,

it’s not something you have to do everyday, it’s WHAT you do everyday! 

It’s part of your life!”

And I’ll be the first to admit, I’ve gotten off that train too. 

Too busy for the gym because I’m working.

Let’s face it, we’re all always working, but we can all set aside one hour a day go to the gym.

But, we come up with some crazy reasons not to such as:

(fill in the blank, wash the dishes, do laundry, go to Target, I’m too tired, it’s too hot out, it’s too cold out, I don’t like going before work, I don’t like going after work, it’s too dark out, it’s too sunny out, you get the idea).

Well, no more procrastinating for me!

I went to the gym this afternoon.  Check. 

Wrote a blog.  Check. 

There’s going to be a lot more checking this year. 

Lots of blogs to be written. 

Projects to get off the ground this year. 

Lots of work to do!

As for the gym; my goal is five times a week💪💪💪

Here’s another thing about getting out of your own way, write stuff down.

Write down exactly what your goals are, so that you can look at it everyday.

Have a clear and concise goal in front of you.


Happy New Year My Beauties!

Remember, I believe in YOU <3
