1. HOW TO OVERCOME PROCRASTINATION ONCE FOR ALL

 It is Friday afternoon and the clock is ticking. You are working tremendously hard to complete a task before the five o’clock deadline, while silently cursing yourself for not starting it sooner. What went wrong? Why did you lose your focus? Why, Why, why …

Everyone has an inner (-) voice that we feed with most of the time very good excuse; let’s use exercising / work-out as an analogy

See what type thoughts / individuals go through our minds:

– Perfectionist: Do I have the colorful Nike shoes? is the temperature above 68 degrees?

–  Lazy: That is too hard; it will require me to spend 30 minutes per day

–  Compare: Do I look better than anyone else in the Gym?

–  Futurist: I might not loose the 20 lbs I need then why bother

–  Know how: Do I know best and latest technique?

– Silly Listener: Someone told me that taking a taking pill will have same effect and faster

–  Jump around: Let’s try many different things and see if anything works

–  Complainer Distraction: Gym is to small also there are a lot sweaty folks in there, I wish it has a larger lounge room

Do not give power to that inner (-) voice, do not feed it with good excuses, rather:

  1. Counter your negative thoughts
  2. Get rid of your distractions
  3. Createadailyschedule
  4. Trackyourtime
  5. Get an accountability partner
  6. Focus on 80/20 rule
  7. Take a massive action   –  Actions drive our thoughts therefore it is better an imperfect action than a perfect inaction. Just start now, DO it.
