KILL Procrastination

KILL PProcrastination is one very bad habit. I can’t stand when I get into “P” mode.

BUT it does happen. How do I get out of it? Well it is not easy but I made myself a promise when I started with my business that I was going to set deadlines on my own projects and hold myself accountable at levels higher than any employers standard.

The saying, “the mechanic drives the worst car” isn’t that freaking true!  It affects most self-employed people due to the fact that there’s not always someone expecting you to produce something.  It’s fuelled by fear, lack of confidence, and disorganization.  Putting things off is a sure way to produce an ineffective business and your brand will pay for it. I have not even mentioned your pocketbook…that’s obvious!

Beat procrastination by building up new habits that make you get BEEP done, like scheduling in time to do the things you’ve put off.  Habit breaking and making takes time to take effect, so keep this in mind as you’re struggling to stop your learned habit of procrastination and creating a new habit of getting things done.

In other words, if you feel like this “P” word is holding you back from being the most powerful business or brand possible. If so, its time to figure out how to train yourself out of this habit which is done by consciously adopting new patterns to apply daily. This is work. This is daily.

I  made a decision I do not like the qualities of someone who procrastinates and just like I am training myself consciously (and with a ton of effort) to get my stuff done when I say I am!

Wanna know how I did “IT”?

I can’t even begin to tell you how often people ask me how I did it. What is it?

Was it easy? Hell Nooooooooo
