Procrastination, how do you overcome it?

 

I have been thinking about procrastination a lot this week.  I have been suffering from it a bit.

I have been showing up in my business everyday, a little bit each day but not putting in the full time I should have been devoting.

I have been making excuses that life has taken over again , but the real excuse is I have not had my definite major purpose at front of mind.  I have been trying to get my head in the right place by using subliminal tools and of course reading and listening to audios, which has helped me deal with some of the depression and negativity my husband has been going through as well.

 

The dictionary definition of Procrastination is:

noun
1.

the act or habit of procrastinating, or putting off or delaying, especiallysomething requiring immediate attention:

She was smart, but her constant procrastination led her to be late with almost every assignment.

So how do you overcome procrastination?

 

Firstly you work out your Why. (Your Definiteness of Purpose) and get it burned into your mind.  The more you burn it into your mind the less likely you will be to procrastinate. You will prioritise the tasks that will lead to you succeeding in your definiteness of purpose.  Always at the top of mind you will be thinking about your definiteness of purpose, your why.  Because your definiteness of purpose is always at the top of your mind you will do everything you can do achieve your definite of purpose.
There are some situations where procrastination is good.  This is putting off minor and unimportant tasks so you can concentrate on the major tasks that lead to achievement of your definiteness of purpose.  Sometimes this procrastination can save you from putting effort in where you shouldn’t exert it.
There are several reasons for Procrastination and all can be overcome.  The list of reasons I have found is Stress, Overwhelm , Laziness, Lack of Motivation, Lack of Discipline, Poor time Management. Lack of Skills, and perfectionism.
I have just read a blog from Steve Palina.com which has a really good explanation of what to do to overcome these reasons for the procrastination but the one that I like the most is make time to play as well then make time to work.

Spring Cleaning

Today the thought of spring cleaning has been going through my mind. The reason for this is that I have been doing quite a bit of cleaning today in preparation for leaving my husband at home to work while I am in the office. As I as thinking about Spring Cleaning I also thought about the concept of spring cleaning the mind.

Today the thought of spring cleaning has been going through my mind.  The reason for this is that I have been doing quite a bit of cleaning today in preparation for leaving my husband at home to work while I am in the office.  As I as thinking about Spring Cleaning I also thought about the concept of spring cleaning the mind.

By Spring cleaning the mind I mean getting rid of a old thinking and getting the mind into the new thinking that will help you succeed.  It is getting ridding of the negative self-talk and replacing it with empowering thoughts.  It is getting rid of the baggage of the past and replacing it with the future you desire.

I have a friend that has gone from not knowing what to do with her life, depressed and feeling hopeless to this wonderful butterfly that shines every day now and is really looking at things she never imagined she would be able to do, like owning her own house.  She has decided that she will no longer be an anchor on herself but will instead fly by running her own business based around her passion.  The change has been amazing to watch.

I am doing this blogging and it amazes me daily what I am managing to talk about.  I never knew I could write, and I have been changing my thinking to make sure I blog everyday of the challenge.  To me it is a new determination to succeed.  I need to succeed this time so I am making sure that I am also doing a spring clean of my mind and mixing with people that are successful and learning from them.  The training I am getting through both IPAS2 and Empower is amazing and I am seeing new people join and immediately succeed. One of the stories I had the honour of hearing the other day was a fellow New Zealander who within 24 hours had all of the money she paid for the Pro package returned to her.

If you follow the system you will succeed.
