Procrastination: How to identify it and how to stop it

Webster’s Dictionary describes procrastination as “to put off doing something that should be done, dawdle, delay.”

In handwriting there is a trait called procrastination, that means just that: to put off, dawdle or delay.  But it is not the only trait that illustrates this behavior.

That is one of the amazing (and useful) things about handwriting analysis, that is can show you, with a clarity that nothing else I know of can, from there the behavior originates and what is the underlying cause.

Here are eight other traits that can hold you back and “masquerade” as procrastination. Continue reading

Change and the Secret of an Open Mind

Change can be hard to handle.  Even change that you want to happen still takes its emotional toll.

But change isn’t going to disappear because we don’t like it. So we have a choice.

We can either embrace the change and find what positives lie within it or we can fight it, complain about it and finally lose the battle anyway.

Ask yourself, which would make you happier?

Here are some tips to help you grow with change. Continue reading
