pro-cras-ti-na-tion |prəˌkrastəˈnāSHən, prō-|
the action of delaying or postponing something: your first tip is to avoid procrastination.
Are you a panic monster?
The Panic Monster is dormant most of the time, but he suddenly wakes up when a deadline gets too close or when there’s danger of public embarrassment, a career disaster, or some other scary consequence.
1) It’s unpleasant. Far too much of the procrastinator’s precious time is spent toiling in the Dark Playground, time that could have been spent enjoying satisfying, well-earned leisure if things had been done on a more logical schedule. And panic isn’t fun for anyone.
2) The procrastinator ultimately sells themselves short, and ends up underachieving and fails to reach their potential, which eats away at you over time and fills you with regret and self-loathing.
3) The Have-To-Dos may happen, but not the Want-To-Dos. Even if the procrastinator is in the type of career where the Panic Monster is regularly present and he’s able to be fulfilled at work, the other things in life that are important to him—getting in shape, cooking elaborate meals, learning to play the guitar, writing a book, reading, or even making a bold career switch—never happen because the Panic Monster doesn’t usually get involved with those things. Undertakings like those expand our experiences, make our lives richer, and bring us a lot of happiness—and for most procrastinators, they get left in the dust.
Does this sound like you?
Sadly there are many people in our business making themselves busy doing anything but reaching their goals! Well STOP, give yourself a shake. Remember why you joined this business in the first place!
*You need to pick yourself up and do what you need to do, day in a day out. Start working towards getting one lead at a time, one sale at a time. You must take action daily to keep working your plan and following your path.
*Consistency will bring in results.
*Scrap your old plan and start again. Put in place daily actions to help you acheive your plan.
*Set new goals. Think about short term goals to help you get to the bigger goals.
*Stop comparing yourself to others, their success is theirs, start focussing on your own and stop comparing.
*Be productive not busy! The only two things that matter to Income-Generating Businesses – you must put the most time right here:
1. New customers that use your products or service.
2. New business builders that join your team.
*learn new skills to help you diverse.
*Be different and stand out from the crowd, don’t follow what everyone else does. Think outside the box.
*Write action lists daily and review them before bedtime. Structure your day wisely.
*End the day on a positive. Think about what you have achieved, look at your list and tick all the tasks off. I need to buy a new “to do list” that’s what I’m doing tomorrow!
Remember! The only thing stopping you from being a success is YOU.
