Procrastination is possibly the most sneaky habit that stealthily sabotages your best performance and achievement goals. As a delighted and proud mum, this photo is of my son Andrew with his gorgeous girlfriend Kaleigh. Andrew was able to defeat procrastination to pick up a first class honours degree with the highest result IET prize.
1. Do what you dislike FIRST. This is a Success Mastery Skill informed from the latest research studies (2018) – High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard. Those who were able to sustain long term success, chose to get things completed and out of the way, that they LEAST liked, FIRST. This is a significant shift to create the mindset of feeling like a winner. Imagine completing tasks and goals with that associated great feeling of reward and achievement. You can feel like a winner all day and this change will inspire self-discipline, self-belief, self-respect, self-confidence and self-esteem to improve and impact every area of your life.
2. Is perfectionism driving your procrastination? Do you painstakingly go over every detail? Is anything you do really good enough? For most people, procrastination disappears when they take action. If perfectionism is the culprit, you may be subconsciously delaying getting started because you are managing the feeling ‘i’m not good enough’. This core limiting belief, if not addressed, will fuel a hazardous habit of stress with post deadline fatigue.
3. If a lack of understanding or clarity as to how best to approach a task or project is fuelling your procrastination, better than no action, just take any action and respond to the feedback you receive.
