7 Steps to Stop Procrastination

7 STEPS TO STOP PROCRASTINATING 

1. How to motivate yourself.   Finding out how to motivate yourself to get things achieved is a powerful resource worth a little discovery time.  If time is our greatest resource, it can be well worth the investment in discovering what brings out the best in you.  

2. Create a plan of things you wish to achieve.  “He/she who doesn’t plan, plans to fail.” Make a plan of the kind of habits that you really prefer.

3. Break down big projects and tasks into smaller manageable steps. Be realistic and flexible. 

4.  Encourage yourself do what you least want to do – FIRST.  Don’t wait for ‘the perfect time’ simply start. This is a Success Mastery Skill informed from the latest research studies (2018) – High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard. 

5. Motivation comes from action and helpful habits make life a whole lot easier.  Every action or non-action you take becomes stronger.  Learn mindfulness to become more aware of your patterns.

6. Imagine completing tasks and goals with an associated great feeling of reward and achievement.  We are hard wired to move towards pleasure so make ‘achievement’ its own reward and don’t forget to be your own best encourager.  Value and appreciate your efforts and this will strengthen feelings of self-worth and self-esteem.  

7.   Is fear limiting you?  According to UC Berkeley professor Martin Covington, fear of failure is directly linked to our self-worth. The limiting belief assumption is that failing to perform means we are not worthy.  If a person has repeated failures then this compounds the feeling of low self worth.  Rather than risking making a mistake or failing with the associated fear, we make ourselves stay stuck.  “If fear is keeping you stuck, get in touch.”

A successful Day

A successful day requires planning and a good night sleep will set you up for your vibrant energy lifestyle.  If you start your day with purpose and clarity, you will feel focused and efficient.  The busier you are, the more you will need to micro-manage your time to maximise efficiency.

1. Write down your tasks the night before and spend the last 20 mins before bedtime doing something calm & enjoyable.
2. Number your tasks in order of priority.  If you have a large task, break it down.
3. Choose three tasks you want to focus on the next day.
4. If distractions occur, factor them into your time plan next time, or consider what you can do to minimise them.
5. Aim for excellence, not perfection.

Make sure you factor in a day off to smell the roses.

Actively search for ways to enjoy moment by moment, because happy feelings increase deeper levels of satisfaction and… a successful day.

3 Quick Tips to Energise your Life

Vibrant Energy Lifestyle

Choose one of your favourite tips to energise your life:

1. Declutter your mind by listing three things you plan to achieve the following day.  Everything else, list under the headings ‘ To Delegate’ or ‘Universe’.

2. Breakthrough procrastination by breaking down large projects into small manageable parts and associating pleasure with anything you don’t want to do.

3. Get very clear about why you want to do something because these are your motivators.  To avoid inner conflict, make sure your desires are aligned with your values and beliefs.  

4.  Only have three tasks on your to-do list to inspire a feeling of ease and look forward to the satisfaction of achievement/accomplishment of finishing and completing these three tasks.

5.  Buy a present for someone (it can be anything little) and really savour the GIVING. Science has proven white blood cells increase when you give – so giving really is receiving with a boosted immune system for YOU too!

6. Take more oxygen into your whole body by breathing deeper into your diaphram instead of shallow breathing into your chest. Oxygen is energy – so BREATH mindfully and deeply. Accompany your breathing with some stretching or other exercise and you will be giving yourself a boost of endorphins that will give you that vibrant energy lifestyle!

7. Go for a ‘mindful’ walk – which means leaving your worries behind.  Each step you take can be mindful, deliberate and free.

8. Release stress by deliberately caring more about your energy and less about perfection.  You can reach for excellence when your energy is lined up with food feelings.  If you are feeling conflicted or overwhelmed, get help with short cut strategies to release stress, fatigue and increase vibrant energy.  In addition, make sure you are eating a selection of fruits, vegetables and superfoods, as well as a few of your favourite treats.
