Memorial Day is almost here! Time to think about summer Fridays and taking life a little slower. If a 100% summer slowdown feels right for you, then go ahead and relax! On the other hand, feel free to set aside a little time now to plan for pleasure. That could mean anything from creating a list of summer festivals and making sure to get your tickets so you can look forward to the big event (I'm going to Tanglewood this summer, can't wait!) to signing up for a cooking class or language course, or even taking a road trip to see old friends. The only goal is to do whatever will bring you pleasure and fulfillment!
Need help identifying your summer goals, and actually getting them done?
Have you ever vouched to do something - whether it's as small as crossing an item off your weekend to-do list or as big as a career change - and then procrastinated for so long you never got around to it?

Sometimes, the things we really want to accomplish are so important to us, they induce a level of anxiety that can keep us from getting started. Other times, the sheer excitement we feel when we picture our goal can get overwhelming. And sometimes, we may just not even understand yet why we're procrastinating at all.

Whatever your emotions, there is a way to address them and create a foolproof plan that allows you to achieve any goal. By creating a plan that not only breaks down the steps you have to do but also builds in steps to deal with the emotions that accompany your goals, you'll be on your way to crossing off that to-do list or embarking upon the career you've always wanted. Here's what to do.
