HOW TO STOP PROCRASTINATING:
To stop using procrastination as an excuse we have to first understand why we procrastinate in the first place. Some of the reasons why we procrastinate:
Lack of structure.
Mismanagement of priorities.
Avoidance of unpleasant tasks.
Anxiety and worthiness misconceptions.
Confidence of capability.
We create our our pressures.
The lie of time.
The Tetris effect – putting our focus on why we can’t do something perpetuates the limitation that we have falsely created
Procrastination is not your safety net.
It will not keep you safe, so stop pretending that it will.
TIME MANAGEMENT TRICKS TO MINIMIZE PROCRASTINATION
Time allocation exercise. How will you spend your 24 hours?
What does an ideal day actually look like for you?
Use your timer on your watch to set time limits to your activities and to your to-do list. The things we have to do expand or contract into the amount of time we allot for them, so remember that you are in control of your time; time is not in control of you!
HOW TO FOLLOW THROUGH MORE AND PROCRASTINATE LESS:
Get fired up – have purpose
Stop selling yourself short.
Refuse to play small.
Recognize that procrastination is actually selfish.
Don’t be a jerk to the world.
Know what you actually want.
Delegate what you are putting off, or put on your britches and just get it done.
Stop overthinking – don’t create mountains that aren’t there.
Remember these things:
You have more than enough time.
You can do hard things.
You aren’t suffering as much as you think you are.
I’m unofficially starting to launch a high-level mastermind for motivated mombosses. I am limiting the group to 8 people and it will be an application process only. We will be starting late Fall or early 2019, but I will be taking applications starting in September, so if you are interested in applying, email me at email@example.com. The mastermind will include individual and group coaching, online as well as in person, with the goal to help you double your revenue and double your free time at the same time so that you can be both a better, more present mom and a better, more productive entrepreneur. I’m already dreaming about what the retreat weekends are going to look like for us and can’t wait to make this happen – it will be lifestyle changing and business changing! Qualifications: you must have clear revenue business goals, you must have clear lifestyle goals for you and your family, and you must be willing to prioritize this mastermind with a year-long commitment.
We are closing the doors to The College of Confidence this month … and they won’t reopen until 2019, so if you know that you want more support, more Trish, more growth in your life, then stop what you are doing and come join us today. It takes just two minutes to register and it’s cancel-at-any-time, so hop on over to www.trishblackwell.com/college and let’s leverage your confidence and courage into crazy dream chasing together!
Oh, and if you’re curious, this month we are diving deep as a group in and around the concept of “mastering your personal story,” and, on top of the four live group coaching calls we will have where we connect one-on-one, we also have coaching lined up on the following topics:
- How to Pull Power and Positivity from Your Personal Story
- How to Tell Your Story With Confidence
- How to Maximize Your Story for Business Growth
- How to Believe that Your Story is Worth Telling
Doors close at the end of the month. Don’t miss out. > www.trishblackwell.com/college
