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!
