Are You Stuck In Procrastination?•
I found myself tinkering around, cleaning and doing everything BUT what I had mapped out for the day.
When you're running a business, it's not exactly the brightest idea to put off an urgent task because you don't feel up to it (I'm pretty sure I've mentioned consistency once or twice before ☺️).
I have a master list of podcast ideas, but for some reason, none of them felt right!
So I did what I always do - stared into the eyes of the beast as I walked into it.
I wanted to honour my self-integrity (and YOU who listen in) and record my weekly podcast.
I wrote a list of everything that I needed to do and slowly began making my way through it because, at the end of the day, I was just prolonging something that needed to be done.
More often than not there's an underlying cause as to why we're procrastinating.
Do we fear what others will say? Should we even do it? "Maybe I'm not ready... I don't have all the answers".... "this could be way better"...
We make up excuse after excuse as to how and why we should avoid it...but why are we holding ourselves back with this resistance?
For me, it was feeling like "this could be way better"...
But we all know perfectionism is just a survival strategy for avoiding criticism yeah?
When I cast away the nagging voice of procrastination...I realised that there was only one way to go from here - Create a podcast about it! Because it is a common struggle amongst us humans and it will have an impact on our businesses if we don't learn how to overcome it.
So here we go!
00.18: I think it’s safe to say that I’m always striving to be on top of my game, but when sneaky procrastination strikes, my shiny cutlery won’t exactly be the selling point of my business…will it?
02.08: Put down the cutlery! Getting down to why on earth I’m polishing cutlery when I’m meant to be creating a podcast.
03.45: On a scale of 0 -10 there’s really only zero or ten. It’s either going to get done or not, and let’s face it…its gotta get done!
05.23: The waves go on even if you don't. So let’s get you clear on why you’ve been procrastinating so you can get back up on that surf.
07.03: Focus on getting it done, not making it perfect!
08.37: Recognizing your fear of doing it.
12.25: Your Zone of Genius is what you’re good at, and what makes you thrive! So you’ve stepped outside of your Zone of Genius and things are getting pretty heavy - because that isn’t your space!
15.22: This is how you beat that procrastination! Get out your pen and paper.
16.21: What’s happening outside of my Zone of Genius? I get someone else to deal with it…get your time and motivation back.
17.29: Do you find yourself ping-ponging between tasks? Perfectionism and procrastination go hand in hand…so listen up because it’s time to let go.
19.16: 80% of results that you gain, comes from 20% of the work that you’ve put in. We’re spending way too much time on menial tasks.
The font colour on the website is not the most important decision here!
20.54: There’s nothing like procrastination to keep you procrastinating so it’s very worthwhile to have a brain dump!
