If you never start, you’ll never have a chance to fail. But you’ll never have a chance to succeed, either.
So stop pretending you haven’t failed by not trying. Stop procrastinating and go for it. Your dilly-dallying around, your excuses, your poking, playing, puttering and loafing about aren’t fooling anyone. Procrastination is fear cloaked in nonchalance.
Have a look at this infographic, generated by U.K.-based infographic design company NeoMam Studios on behalf of the writing services firm Essay.Expert, for 15 techniques to fight your tendency to procrastinate. For example, don’t set unreasonably ambitious goals. Facing the impossible is paralyzing and you won’t end up doing much of anything
Raise your hand if you have ever been stabbed in the back by a female friend.
Raise your hand if you have met issues in the workplace due to a female colleague.
Raise your hand if you have been spoken about negatively by another woman.
Raise your hand if you have received negative customer service from a woman because you are a woman.
Raise your hand if you have been held back or prevented from excelling in school or the workplace by another woman.
Raise your hand if you have committed one of the above offences yourself. (This one is much harder to do huh?!)
Why a ‘pit’ you may ask? Why not a line, a box, maybe even a cage? Depending on your reaction to this title, the ‘container’ of your preference would say a lot about your perception of other women and yourself, and also your experiences with the word bitch. Have you been called a bitch? Have you called yourself a bitch? Were you called that to your face, or you suspect behind your back? Were you called that in anger, fun, jest or admiration? Was it in the home, workplace or social setting?
To answer the first question; pit means an area that would be avoided, that also if you’re not looking at what you’re doing, you could simply fall in, or maybe be shoved into. Did you dig it yourself or is it a trap that you use as a defence mechanism for others to fall in, if they attempt to trespass, or is it a snare you use to catch your prey?
