Pro – cras – ti – na – tion (proh-kras-tuh-ney-shuhn) – the act or habit of procrastinating, or putting off or delaying, especially something requiring immediate attention.  

I’m sure nobody really needs the definition of the word procrastination spelled out, I know I don’t – this blog was due two weeks ago! Everyone procrastinates sometimes, over 20% of people are chronic procrastinators. Did you know that procratination and perfectionism go hand in hand? Here are some reasons for procrastination:

  • Fear of Failure
  • Because we are too busy
  • Over-or under-estimating the degree of difficulty the task involves

Does any of this sound familiar on reasons why you have not tried to take your horse barefoot? There is so much information available today regarding natural horse care, using hoof boots and barefoot trimming, it can get overwhelming. EasyCare has a whole section of our website devoted to articles to help educate you and get you on your way.

Ways to overcome procrastition:

  • Get a buddy to do the barefoot transition with you.
  • Challenge your myths regarding shoeing and do some research.
  • Get a new attitude.

So, take a deep breath and dive in. Remember the worst form of procrastition is reading an article about it, feeling the guilt and not doing anything about it. (I will have to remember this when my next blog is due.)
