Procrastinate or Succeed: What is Today’s Schedule?

Steven15 responsesGeneral

I have already written a couple posts about procrastination, but that’s never enough since procrastination is the root of a lot of different problems: we can always find plenty of good excuses to not do our work.

Excuses can range from: “I will do that later” to “I don’t have the time right now” or “I have so many things to do, I don’t know where to start”.

Instead of getting some work done and take another step to get closer to success, wwe end up being lazy and not doing anything. I have to be honest with you, I am not immune to procrastination. It happens to me more than often to postpone some work for whatever reason. What saves me is that when I get started working, I can be extremely productive and focused for endless hours/days/weeks.

Procrastination affects us in so many ways… From adding money to our retirements accounts to developing our make money online businesses. If you think about it for 2 seconds that’s pretty crazy… The only thing that’s preventing some of us of reaching success is that they are too lazy to get off their butts and do something that will take them one step closer to success.

All you need is to give yourself the little push to get things started. The hardest step is always the first! Once you get some momentum it’s a lot easier to stay motivated since you are already seeing some positive results from the work you have done. Remember that the most successful people are not always the smartest but they are undoubtedly the ones who are taking action!

    This is undeniably true, procrastination is the #1 reason why people don’t reach success, no matter how smart they are, or how good their ideas are. If you don’t DO the work, there’s no way you will succeed.

    1. The key here is to take action and stop finding excuses to postpone your work.

    Procrastination hits us all at different times, the way I deal with it is to allot myself a certain amount of time, say 10 minutes, to do whatever it is that my mind is telling me is so important, and I either finish whatever it is and start working on what I really need to do, or I don’t finish and have to do it later. No matter what, after those 10 minutes, it’s back to work. It takes self-discipline, but we are all fully capable of conquering procrastination.

      This is a really great technique. I find that procrastination is definitely a weak point for me. What usually ends up happening is that I let myself get distracted by other “important” things, and then I have a heavy guilt weighting on me for not getting done what I needed to get done. It’s an awful predicament. I would like to try this strategy though, and see if that helps.

    2. And there are so many possible distractions online…

      I think that is a terrific idea! This could really work for me, just set a timer for 30 mins and let myself have that time, no more and no less, and then force myself to go back to work. I like it.

    This is something I have struggled with all my life. I’m very whimsical by nature, so when something comes up that distracts me, it’s extremely hard to get myself focused again. But you’re right, once you do start working, you reach a new level of focus and determination that is fueled by your power to say “no”. It’s a great feeling.

      I think “whimsical” definitely describes me too. The thing is, I like to have fun. At all times. And sometimes work can be so booooring… I get fidgety, but that’s when I know I need to blow off some steam, so I usually do something active for about 30 mins, and then go back to work. I’d say that works for me about 60% – 80% of the time.

    Totally LOVING this post. Procrastination is Kryptonite. It keeps us from being superman or woman. There is SO MUCH we can get accomplished if we eliminated this disease!! Very motivational post, thanks!

      Procrastination is evil, and the worst part about it is we have no one to blame for not getting the work done but ourselves. I want to be Superman!!

    Loving this inspirational vibe, everyone. Good energy all over this post, it’s great and it’s making me want to beat my procrastination and get shit done!

    The title of this post says it all. Do I want to procrastinate today, and get nothing done and then feel bad about it later and kick myself? Or do I want to be a successful go-getter who has a lot to do and knocks it all out in one day, and feel great about it later? I choose the latter.

      The real challenge is to choose that every single day, no matter how you’re feeling or what else is going on in your life. You have to wake up and start fighting. But the only thing you’re really fighting is yourself. This was a really great post about that.
