Do you ever feel wanted to do something you procrastinate about it ( I want to run a marathon, go to the gym, Quit smoking learn a new language, an instrument, want to start a business ), ect…?
You go on days after days talk about it, or didn’t find the time to get it done. You have so many ideas and projects but you never start trying to do anything and you are putting off so many things including some most important task.
Do any of this sound familiar or related to you personally?
When you finally took a leap of faith to start doing something but you get hit on a wall and beat up by all sort of; it is hard to do, I cant do it, I thought I could, you get discouraged, disappointed and losing all motivation to even try a little bit more.
Do you ever wonder how come I always get behind and those people that are successful are doing such and that things? They always find a way to accomplish so much and get more stuff done.
Let me tell you that you are not the only person that get hold by procrastination. The way most people feel, do and act the same way you do.
Most of the time you just need a small push, a little encouragement that could motivate and help you make the first step.
Some people use self-talk, some incantation, repeat themselves some inspiring and motivating words or phrase to help them wake up the mood that keeps them in a low level of taking action and start doing something.
In fact, its not because you cannot do things, or do every goal we set to.
But it just there are so many details that come in our way in form of distractions (notications; email, a phone to be answer, it is time to go to meetings, lunch, break, need a coffee etc…) at the end of the day you didn’t accomplish what is important to you and things that you have started stay unfinished.
It becomes so frustrated sometimes sees so many things that you try on but never complete them or you either perform very poorly. You ask yourself why I am failing all the time?
Is that describing to someone like you?
The truth is not only, you are procrastinating so much, just you get so good at it, you do it very well.
Here are 7 ways on how to overcome Procrastination
1- Identity what is Important and Urgent.
You need to take a little bit of time to evaluate yourself. What are those things that are the most important for you and that contribute better to your life?
Break them down into what has the most priority and highlight them.
2- Forget About the unimportant and not urgent.
There are a lot of things that will not take you to what you want to accomplish. Maybe there are things that you will need to do 1 to 3 months from now or long after.
Those things don’t attack them; forget about them for a while.
Put right in front of you those that need to be done now, in the morning and during this week or this weekend.

4- Pick 1 Small Things To Do.
We often procrastinate because we are looking to do the big things, those things that most will attend to the crowd, what other people will see.
This when you get by and not able to accomplish it or even stick to it we get major disappointed and we start to pounder, sabotage ourself.
Instead become a master in doing little things.
He who not faithful in small, cannot be faithful in big. As the proverb says :
“You don’t give hundreds thousand in a million if you don’t use to give a Dime in Dollars.”

Anything that is not Writing it is a wish. When you put in down in a paper it becomes real and achievable. So many things we pass by because we absolutely forget do it.
Just because we did have a plan describe it. The mind can cheat you at any moment even for the biggest event like forget to call in the Birthday of loved ones.

6- Start, Act-On, And Run.
Ideas without execution are nothing. You don’t just wish you lose weight, you don’t just wish you quit smoking; you don’t just wish you win a marathon.
Everything you need to is to start. You need to do something about it. Don’t in the trap of those that try to wait until each one is perfection.
There are not such a perfect time to start doing things, there are no better than right now. By waiting to the perfect time, you waste and lose the opportunity to advance yourself in the road.
You need to not let the sun rise up and sunset arrive without you been in action Run, Run, Run,… to this is what you need to do.
7- Repeat The Process All The Steps.
