May 23, 2017

have been wanting to talk to you about this but I’ve been postponing it. Definitely not a good practice as I fell victim of procrastination but you shouldn’t. Plans are organized in your brain but putting it to work gets very hard. 

This situation gets really worse such as we don’t even achieve anything meaningful when lazying around. 

Perhaps, we waste the time on having meaning engagements on social media. Therefore, these are the tips to fix your mindset;

1) Set your priorities right

Priorities imply doing what you have to do instead of wishing you did. Hence, set aside or eradicate all factors hindering your goals.

Endeavor to identify your priorities. You need to first digest why you want to achieve the goal in the first instance. In what ways will it be of benefit to your life or “success bank”.

Factors like social media, unnecessary events or engagements should be eradicated if they start getting in the way of your set priorities. Don’t be surprised as the time you gain back to fully focus on your priorities without having to worry about “Hey, I don’t have time or Procrastination” !!!

2) Fix your mindset to put an end to procrastination

Remember, failure is just an opportunity to learn and get better. Start by taking up new challenges. Emulate the traits of goal achievers and strive to gain more clarity in your plans. Thus, the more you have the mindset of “You Can’t”, the harder doing it becomes. You know why ?! Because your mindset is already shifted to looking at it as HARD.

Start by changing your mindset… look at it through the realm of doing it a step at a time. This way you get to be in control and manage your time effectively as well as efficiently. Thus, putting a stop to procrastination.

3) Surround yourself with like-minded people to avoid procrastination

Honestly, this has been of great help to me in having less of those days of procrastination. I have quite a lot of people that are sources of motivation to me.  People I know will tell me the plain truth without holding back as they are very much eager to see my success.

Align yourself with individuals with great passion as you- where in you can be held accountable in getting started with your outlined task. The type of people that would be a source of positive influence in helping to ignite the boost you need to gain clarity in your own mechanism.

    I agree with the list. If you don’t set your priorities, you will do everything and achieve something not linked to your goals.

    Like minds challenge us to be better. You don’t want to be left behind
