I am sure you have all struggled with it! I even procrastinated over what I was write today!
I am sure you can all think of more than one thing right now that you have been putting off, delaying or avoiding…! So how about you right down 3 things that come to mind! 1.
It maybe booking that doctors appointment
Doing your accounts! Starting your diet! Washing the car!
These things are not necessarily about money or building relationship And nothing to do with ambition!
So why do we procrastinate? Well its related to all the hard stuff! Which can be emotional, physical or mental for such as learning!
And its also to do with fear! Fear of being rejected or of not being able to do it or it not turning out the way you wanted!
It doesn’t matter how important it is we still procrastinate; it could even be the most important thing on our to do list and we find a way to put it off!
If you had an important action to take like calling 10 clients for referrals.
And it was on your list of actions for the week, along with lots of other actions!
What’s the likelihood that you would make the calls on Monday?
If you’re like most people, your great intentions slowly get pushed to the next day then the next day and before you know it the week is over and you still haven’t made your calls and they appear on next week’s list!
I don’t know about you but I find that I can plow through a bunch of actions in a few hours and then hardly achieve anything for the rest of the day! There are many ways to face and deal with the tasks you are putting off one of the the easiest and simplest is to make a list! At the top of the list put the three most important things you need to do that day! Before you open your email, look at social media or call your mum! Get those things done! Then move on to the more fun stuff!
