  • I'm horrible at procrastinating, which is probably why my blogging happens the night before most of the time. I need to get better at that for sure.

  • "Harness the power and ignite the gift" I love that! I feel like I should print that out and leave it on my mirror. A great reminder!

    • I am glad you like that. I always like it when I read something that inspires me. I write it down on my bulletin board and type it onto my laptop bulletin board.

  • I am definitely guilty of procrastination. I am trying to not procrastinate as much though. Gotta start somewhere, right? :)

  • I love that you can discover your talents at any age! Definitely need to get off my butt and use them!

  • I'm trying to not be lazy and procrastinate. Sometimes though, it takes over but I always end up getting it done. I also sometimes procrastinate my procrastination. I'll start working on one thing, then move on to something else so I don't have to do that first thing for a while. Anyone else do that?

  • Hmm, now you're making me think. I guess I haven't even really thought about my talents. I'll need to give this some thought.

  • I'm a HUGE procrastinator. I feel like a hypocrite when I start telling my kids what they should be doing and when!

    • It's not being a hypocrite to tell your kids to do better. We all want our kids to do better than we do.

  • That's a darn good question. I need to work on this and really utilize my talents to their fullest.

  • Those are great tips. I'm a sanguine personality, so organization is my down fall. I am working on it, though.
