I hear people every day who tell me they have a problem with procrastination.
But it isn’t a problem. It’s a symptom of a bigger issue.
That bigger problem is a lack of passion, excitement, and motivation.
Think about it – if you’re interested in something, you will get it done on time.
You CAN get everything done
If you are ready to go on vacation, you’ll get all the preparation done months in advance.
But if the task seems boring, you can put it off indefinitely.
And that leads to a long list of issues, the biggest being stress and worry.
As William James so eloquently stated, “Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.”
Here is how…
The next time you find yourself putting off doing something, figure out WHY you aren’t excited about it.
If you can’t find some way to become passionate about the task, delegate it.
And, before you tell me you can’t delegate it, I’m going to tell you that you can delegate anything except eating, exercising and a few other body-focused activities.
Everything else can be outsourced.
My challenge to you this week is to make a list of things you procrastinate about, and check why you are uninterested in them.
If you can’t drum up some passion, take the first task and get creative about how to delegate it.
You don’t need staff in order to delegate. Sometimes you just need a cash-hungry teenager.
If you can’t figure out how to delegate a task, post a comment in the Facebook Group and I’ll help you solve it.
