Pragmatic Technologies for Life and Business Success®
From Merriam-Webster: To procrastinate is to go against the old saying, “Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.” Appropriately, the word procrastinate has the Latin word cras, meaning “tomorrow,” tucked inside it, because when you procrastinate you often are putting something off until the next day……
Consider this scenario:
“This is a perfect time to get some work done.”
(Your brain)…”Nope. Let’s watch a bunch of YouTube videos and then a Ted Talk, think about calling a client, and end up having pizza and watching interviews with Justin Bieber’s mom!”
By then it’s 2:00 and you have an appointment at 4:30, so it’s really too late to start any work at this point.
Does this sound at all like you? If yes, it’s time to push that procrastination thinking aside and begin to look at ways to jumpstart your business thinking and get back on track.
Here are a few ways to get going:
Even the most disciplined entrepreneurs can fall prey to occasional procrastination, even myself. I’ve learned to go into the skid, but when I come out of it, I re-navigate and to stay on course, and accomplish much more than I did. I don’t beat myself up but use it as a springboard to move on ahead with greater fortitude and vigor.
Whatever you do, stop putting it off!
