ProcrastinationListApril is Procrastination Awareness month, so this month I’ll be focusing on things that will help you beat procrastination. Procrastination can be a real problem and can have a big impact on your business and your life if it’s not remedied.  We all put things off from time to time, but if it’s something that you do on a continual, regular basis, then it’s safe to say that you’re a procrastinator.  If you’re a procrastinator you are probably paying a very high cost for putting things off and have been doing so for a long time.  Procrastination has cost you time, money and may have even had an impact on your image or what people think of you.

My April time & Space Radio broadcast was about the thief of time.  I talked about the Procrastination Tree™, it’s roots, branches and fruit and outlined a way for you to get the big picture so that you can see how procrastination looks in your life.  More importantly, I shared some concrete steps that you can implement immediately to get on the road to getting rid of this nasty little habit once and for all.   Give the broadcast replay a listen and get present to the true effect that procrastination is having on your business and your life.  You’ll also learn the missing piece when it comes to getting rid of procrastination and you’ll have an opportunity to take the first steps toward eliminating it.  Don’t you think it’s time you stop putting things off and paying the high cost for doing so?  Then click here and get going now!

 


Okay, people, half of the year is up. That’s right, it’s gone.  Never to return and with it goes all of the precious time that you wasted.  What have you accomplished so far? If you aren’t even close to where you expected to be or if you haven’t done much it’s probably because you’re fighting that losing battle with procrastination.

If you’re like most people, you have been challenged at some point when it comes to procrastination.  You may even be struggling with it on a regular basis, which we both know is not a good thing.  You might even want to take the next step toward something that you want or a goal, but have something inside that’s keeping you from it.

If procrastination is holding you and your goals hostage, it’s time to eliminate that nasty habit and move forward with not only the things that are on your daily to-do list, but to move forward in your business. You may be at a point where you’ve started to put off the doing the things that will get you to that next level that you desire so much.  Because of that you’re confused; wondering how, if you want that next level so badly for yourself and if you’re ready for it, why you continue to procrastinate and struggle.  You’re doing it silently, thinking that no one knows where you are in your head and your heart.

People struggle at this point because there’s something else going on inside; the procrastination is just the outcome of the internal stuff that’s going on.  Procrastination takes away your personal power and it takes control, leaving you in the back seat. You can’t really get results and reach your goals from the back seat, even if you created them along with a plan for achieving them.  Instead of struggling every day to beat procrastination, take a step back and start to look at what you’re putting off and what it’s costing you.  Make a list of the things that you’ve been putting off.  Then go back over the list and make a quick note about why you think you’ve been procrastinating on each item on the list.  This won’t be the real reason that you’re procrastinating, but beginning to think about why you might be putting it off starts the process to uncovering the root cause of your procrastination.

Next comes the scary part.  Look at the time that you’ve wasted because you’ve been procrastinating.  Then multiply that amount of time by your hourly rate.  So, if you’re a coach your hourly rate might be $150.  Multiply the number of hours that you’ve wasted by that rate.  See what I mean by scary?  If you were able to spend that time with clients, that money would be in your pocket.  You won’t be able to have that and more in your pocket until you break the habit of procrastination and, more importantly, what’s causing it.  To get back your personal power you’ve got to delve deep to get to the root cause of your procrastination.  Until you do, you’ll continue to pay the cost to put it off.

Just think about it. What would your life look like if you stopped procrastinating? How much more productive would you be? How much could you get done?  How would it feel? Wouldn’t it be great to get results?!!  What if you had a way to get the big picture of your procrastination and uncover the real reason that you procrastinate?  Well, there is a way for you to do just that and get back in the driver’s seat.  It’s called Procrastination Annihilation.  This program will take you through the steps to get that big picture view of your procrastination and then guide you through uncovering what’s going on beneath it all; the real reason for your procrastination so that you can eliminate it and be on the road to accomplishing your goals and making good use of the remaining half of the year.  The best part is that right now this 12 week program is deeply discounted by almost 70%.  All you have to do is click the following link to get it.  Don’t put it off.  The time is now! http://bit.ly/Nby1TJ
