Stop Wishing and Start Doing: Unleash Your Hidden Potential by Solving the Procrastination Puzzle...A User Guide to Overcoming Procrastination
I was once like you. I'd sit at my desk, glance at the mountain of tasks, and deadlines looming over me. Often, instead of tackling them head-on, I'd find myself scrolling through social media or aimlessly doodling. My "to-do" list grew longer while my "done" list remained stagnant.
I'd try to get myself going but every effort seemed to fail as I gave into feelings of perfectionism, wanting everything to be "in place" before I started. I often suffered from a lack or urgency waiting for the right time so I could get myself settled and ready to focus.
Sometimes I tended to low-value tasks, what I call "busy work." Most of the time I would work on things when I was in the mood to deal with them. It was the vicious cycle of procrastination that left me feeling drained, unproductive, demotivated, and ultimately ashamed for missing deadlines. Mostly, I would feel disappointed because I knew better; and as a leader, I was expected to do better. Needless to say, this is also not a good strategy to build a business. 🤦🏽♀️
If you're still reading this, you've likely experienced the emotional turmoil that procrastination can induce. It's a ruthless, nagging beast that causes endless stress, gnawing guilt, and a constant feeling of underachievement. Procrastination can lead to regret, disappointment, and shame.
You start each day with a growing list of tasks and end with most of them unchecked, a victim to distraction and delay. Of course, in the technology age, distractions are plenty. The question isn't if your mind will wander from place to place, it becomes how you redirect yourself to stay focused on getting done, while doing the things that matter most, first.
Perhaps you've already tried traditional methods to combat procrastination?...
But these solutions are often band-aids on a deeper wound, and the root problem remains untouched. As with most bad habits, it is necessary to do the work to find out the cause(s).
Willpower isn't enough. You need a solution that truly understands your struggles, addresses them at their core, and provides a structured approach to overcoming them. Are you ready?
Lack of Confidence
Feeling the imposter syndrome — like you’re not qualified for your work or are less valuable than others who "earned" their success — may cause you to avoid getting out front and taking the lead. You are capable. You have what it takes. Be patient with yourself as you evolve. Stand tall in your authentic brilliance, and get things done.
Anxiety is a normal response to stress. But when it becomes hard to control and it negatively affects your day-to-day life, it can soon become disabling. I have found the more anxiety I experience about a task, the more likely I’ll put it off until later. This is particularly true if it is a task that can potentially be judged by others. This is when procrastination becomes the most aggressive. If you become preoccupied with the "what ifs" or "what will they think," it's over before you get started. Anxiety leads to the fear of failing and fear of failing leads to perfection. All of the above is rooted in low self-esteem and insecurity.
Fear of Failing
Do you avoid doing certain tasks because you’re afraid of failing? Perhaps it is fueled by a lack of confidence or perfectionism. Unsupported or competitive environments can also cause a fear of failure. Consider whether your life promotes positive reflections and work-life balance or whether you’re dealing with toxic productivity and unhelpful (self-)criticism. We know, as a business owner you have courage. However, when you are worrying about failing it may cause you to put off following up with a prospect, entering a new market, or submitting a loan or grant application. Refuse to allow fear to get in your way.
Perfectionism is a mental state where you expect to act the best and make the best decisions at all times. Social pressures, childhood upbringing, competition, and even social media, all influence how we view ourselves and how we think should show up and be in the world.
Perfectionism is a maladaptive practice. It is typically more harmful than helpful because you have set yourself up to measure things against unrealistic expectations.
Unfortunately, perfectionists tend to stress more and achieve less. The fear of imperfection thwarts success.
A short 35-page guide offers the tools and strategies you need to overcome procrastination and make room to achieve your biggest and grandest life, (and business) goals.
