How to Overcome Procrastination?
Have you been putting off certain tasks in your business that you know must get done? This, my friend, is what’s called procrastination.
Procrastination is simply the lack of taking action towards the completion of a task. There is one main reason why procrastination occurs in your life.
The one main reason you’re not getting anything done, or at least the things that you would like to get done is because you haven’t assigned a high level of priority to that task. Your main issue may not be that you’re not taking action. Your main issue involves what you’re taking action on.
If your attention is not focused on the most important tasks your time could be wasted doing the things that will not get you to where you want to go. You must establish the right priorities. The right priorities will direct your attention, focus and energy towards the completion of the task that matter most in your life at the time.
So, now that you know what the problem is, you can now get it fixed. The reason you’re procrastinating is because that task you’re avoiding taking action on is not yet a priority in your life. I’ll take it a step further than making that task ‘a‘ priority. Make a decision to turn that task into ‘the‘ priority and action will follow.
Set your goals then determine the tasks that will get you to your goals. Afterwards, assign different levels of priority to each task so you’ll know how much time and attention each tasks will require.
If you find yourself procrastinating to do any of these tasks then it’s more than likely because you have not made that task a priority. More than likely you haven’t made up in your mind that the specific task at hand is important enough for you to drop everything else and focus all of your resources, effort and energy on getting it done.
