      There are times when I have to pause for a while and set tasks aside since I don't have the inspiration to accomplish it. But when I do get that burst of energy, nothing can stop me from accomplishing it.

      I like the angle you took with this article. I think that one of the things about procrastination a lot of people miss is the ambition. We look at things that we would like to accomplish and too often think we can do more than we actually can. The result is something is put off or we are just overwhelmed and, consequently, don't do it. We procrastinate. Voted up.

      Take care.
