What’s the biggest thing that prevents that flow of energy?
Clutter. And what creates clutter? You’ve got it - procrastination! You can procrastinate about anything - things that seem difficult, and
things you enjoy, such as writing or taking that time to nurture yourself.
Do you have people to call, letters to answer, things you’ve been putting off? Maybe you think they will be difficult, or take a long time.
Maybe you wonder if your voice will make a difference if you don’t like something your politicians are doing. How about your business? Most
people have at least one idea they haven’t got around to that if put into action would make a difference to their bottom line.
Procrastination puts you out of integrity with yourself. In Feng Shui the Fame and Reputation area is about integrity. It’s how you are seen
in the community - and that comes right back to whether you walk your talk. Do you do what you say you’ll do? Are you being true to yourself and
When you don’t follow through on your ideas and intentions energy blocks are created. It takes energy to avoid taking action, and it takes
energy to deal with the consequences.
Clutter is delayed decisions. It’s procrastination. Its stress. It’s the same thing as putting a piece of paper in
that pile on your desk, telling yourself you’ll deal with it later. As the piles grow, your energy becomes clogged.
Next thing you know you’re spending time looking through your piles for information you’ve lost because you didn’t file your papers where they
belonged - in files or in your recycling bin.
There’s a fine line between procrastination, and letting the dust settle while you give yourself space to take inspired action. And if you
listen to that small voice within you, you’ll know which you are choosing.
Committing to action is a very different energy from procrastination.

1. Get real about your procrastination habit. Can you take a step back and even laugh at it?

commitment made to someone, or a dream you are assuming you have forever to live. Make a start now. Starting is often the hardest part and you
will be setting something in motion.

next. Break it down into small pieces, put them in your schedule, and give each a time limit so it doesn’t expand
