5 Tips To Beat Procrastination

Do you sometimes feel as though you’re sinking?

That there’s a lot to do, but there isn’t a lot of time to get it done?

Do your emotions run high when you look at your To-Do list?

You think “how am I going to tackle all of that today?”

I think it’s safe to say, we’ve all been there. 

Gone are the days when you used to work as an employee, pigeon holed to perform just one task.

… Maybe you’re still that employee, but your focus has shifted to something that serves a greater purpose to you, and what you can bring to the table, be it a product or a service to make the world a better place.

From time to time, we all need to take time out to pulsate and cherish the very reason we are here

To live that dream and to understand ourselves a bit better, here are some things that I did recently to help myself when in that situation:

1) Take Time Out

Take a break.  If you are an employee or employed full time, and working on your business, then make sure that you are not working all the hours.

Soon you will tire yourself out, and when you think that you are making traction, you may find yourself become destabilised in reaching your end goal.

2) Write down your Goals

By having a clear vision in your life, and writing down some meaningful goals over the next three months, you have a map for how to get there.

It might not work out the way you plan – maybe a greater opportunity comes along, or you suffer a set back – but at least you have an understanding as to where you should be going.

3) Do that One Thing

There is a book called “The One Thing” by Gary W Keller, which I cannot rate highly enough.  This has given me the focus to concentrate on getting certain things done for that day.

As we all know, procrastination is a key human flaw.  By reading this book, it took away a lot of the dross that many of you may be facing.

4) Pat them on the back

Each time you make an achievement, reward yourself and your fellow workers.  We are all human at the end of the day and need encouragement to move upwards and onwards.

Without a little encouragement from our fellow peers how can we move forward?

5) Join a Mastermind Group or a Community

Here in the UK, there are so many businesses taking aid of the Government Loan Scheme and various other notable sources.

But the real help comes not only from our assigned mentor, but from the people in our community who are like minded. Those with an interest in not only develop their own businesses, but to give you a bit of a boost too.

Questions –

… Absolutely nothing whatsoever, but sometimes we all need to appreciate the better moments in our life. We all need reminding sometimes, even myself.
