Riding Life's Waves: Confronting Procrastination – The Surfer's Way

How do we avoid avoidance? How do we find the inner resources to confront situations and move forward?

“[F]eeling is what tells you you’re alive,” Bregman explains. By riding out our emotions like waves, we become less intimidated by them – and maybe even enjoy them. It’s like learning a language: the more you ask, the more you know and the more you share. The more you share, the easier conversation flows. In both scenarios, the potential rewards far exceed the risk.
Despite this celebration of feeling, taking initiative is still often easier said than done. What advice can we offer our peers, our students and – perhaps especially – ourselves when it comes to taking the final plunge?

Why do we procrastinate? Is it from fear of failure – or of feeling? While easier said than done, the solution is simple; author Peter Bregman explains how adopting a surfer's attitude toward to-do lists helps us confront life's waves head-on.
