How to Finally Overcome Procrastination

Ditch Perfectionism

In the beginning, when you’re doing something, what happens is you fail a lot because it’s new to you. It makes you frustrated, you get angry, so you procrastinate. That cycle keeps spinning and spinning. Instead, if you just took a calm approach to it and realized that failure was part of the process, you’d be able to move further forward in whatever it is you’re doing.

Determine What’s Important

Eat the frog and just do what you need to do right now and don’t put it off. You have to do that next step, and you have to put it first. And a lot of times, we build up steps in our head to make them sound hard. You want to tackle those immediately, especially if they’re important. So always be thinking of what is the most important thing.

Map Out the Next Five Steps

Even if you don’t know the full spectrum, if you mapped out the next five possible steps to move you forward towards your goal, all you have to do is take step one. It’s about getting clear on the first step and then having the courage to take that first step. Action is what moves the needle forward. It’s not just about knowing or thinking about what it is you need to do.

Focus On the Goal

Often, when you watch someone successful, it looks like it’s easy, but only because they’re not telling you what’s going on in their head. Successful people have given up the excuses holding them back. What they’re thinking about becomes the motivating driving force. It doesn’t matter if you felt tired or if you had to stay an hour late. That’s the cost of being great at something. It’s going to take away some portion of your life, but it will add value in other areas.

INSIDE THE ELEVATED LIFE CLUB:

Do you hold yourself to excessively high standards? Are you a people pleaser? Do you have a fear of failure or constantly procrastinate?

These are all traits of a perfectionist. 

They keep us living in a constant state of dissatisfaction and suffocate our creativity.

What happens is you start to attach your worth to your level of productivity and the results (and praise) you get. 

But no matter how much you succeed (or don’t), it’ll never truly be good enough. 

There will always be that voice inside that says, “I could have done better.”

So not only does perfectionism stop you from achieving happiness or following all the way through to the finish line…

…it even stops you from ever starting.
