Clock exploding in hands titled procrastination

Procrastination can feel like a solid wall standing between you and your goals. It's the voice in your head telling you to put things off until tomorrow, draining your motivation and stifling your progress. But fear not! In this blog, we'll explore effective strategies to conquer procrastination and unlock your true potential to be more productive.

Understanding the Procrastination Trap

Procrastination often stems from fear, perfectionism, or a lack of clarity. By identifying the underlying causes, you can better address them and break free from this self-defeating cycle. Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real, our mind projects an illusion that we choose to believe in order to stay stay, when we understand this we can choose to move forward despite noticing it and acknowledging that it only their as a self-protection mechanism to make us feel safe. We do have the power within us to overcome procrastinating thoughts, and the you’ll be surprised to know its quite easy to overcome. The solution is quite simply, one small action, repeated. The size of the step you take is not important, as long as it is one small action towards the result you are hoping o achieve.

Harnessing the Power of Prioritisation

Learn how to prioritise tasks effectively, create a realistic schedule, and develop a sense of urgency. By focusing on what truly matters and setting clear goals, you'll overcome the temptation to procrastinate. If you think of the energy required to take an action and were to give is a measurement you might say that the first step takes 10 units of energy, it’s the first step that is the most amount of work mentally, after this though the momentum has initiated, to maintain that momentum it might them only take 1 unit of energy done consistently.

‘Eat The frog First’ Method: Overcoming Procrastination Tips - One Frog at a Time

What does 'eat the frog' mean? The east the frog method is a prioritisation and productivity methos used to help people identify difficult tasks. The idea is that you identify one challenging task (the frog) and complete the task first thing in the morning (eating it).

Cultivating a Growth Mindset

Embrace a growth mindset that emphasises learning and improvement rather than perfection. By reframing failure as an opportunity for growth, you'll be more motivated to take action and overcome the fear of starting. Susan Jeffries talks about this in her book ‘Feel the Fear and do it anyway’. When we build up the metaphorical muscle to move forward despite the fear then courage and bravery show up and our self-trust increases, this then gives us the empowerment to do anything we set our minds to.

Accountability and Support Systems

Connection – If your mindset is set in it’s own ways: learn how to think differently by listening to others and feel inspiration in hearing how others overcome their challenges

When our minds are stubbornly working against us, we can take our power back. Just like directing it the way you would a toddler you can use the art of distraction to focus on something completely different. As Einstein once said, “You can’t solve a problem with the same thinking that got you into the problem in the first place.” Many successful women in business will often join a sisterhood or mastermind where they can listen and learn from others, making our situations less about the ‘I’ and more about the ‘we’. Something magical happens when women come together, our ego’s get out of the way and our mindset begins to change, we connect more in with our heart’s, and we see the bigger picture again. Learning to think and feel differently tricks the brain out of its ‘set in its own ways’ manner and onto greener pastures.

Celebrating Small Wins and Progress

Reward yourself for completing tasks and milestones along the way. By acknowledging your achievements, no matter how small, you'll fuel your motivation and build positive momentum, ultimately defeating procrastination. You’ll notice that by patting yourself on the back more often you will reinforce in your mind (through positive feedback) that the effort you are applying is good job. To start with set small goals and give yourself small rewards to anchor this even more.

Overcoming procrastination is a journey that requires self-awareness, effective strategies, and a willingness to take action. By implementing these methods and developing a proactive mindset, you'll be well on your way to unleashing your true productivity potential. To book a complimentary session with a coach head to:

The Mindset Trap Holding You Back

You might think you're doing everything right in your business, but what if I told you there's one thing holding you back from reaching your full potential? The mindset trap is a sneaky little voice inside your head that tells you you're not good enough, smart enough, or talented enough to succeed. It's the voice that whispers that you're not worthy of success, or that you'll never be able to achieve your dreams. And if you don't learn how to overcome this mindset trap, it will continue to hold you back from the success you deserve. Sometimes we even have to hear our thoughts and choose to move forward despite them. Its the inaction that really lets you know you are trapped.
