Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time, sometimes to the "last minute". (Wikipedia)
Procrastination has to be one of my biggest issues. Join me as I spell out procrastination in a way that can help us to overcome it!
What kind of fruit is hanging off your Procrastination Tree™?
Procrastination is so prevalent, even among business owners, which is a bit scary. It's something that everyone does from time to time, but when it's a habit, it costs you big time. If you stop for a moment to think about what putting things off is costing you, you'd be totally fired up to get in motion to stop procrastinating.
During this broadcast I'm going to share what I call the Procrastination Tree™ with you so that you can get present to what procrastination looks like in your life. We're going to talk about the symptoms of your procrastination (what I call the roots), and how it shows up and how it's impacting you right now. (Your fruit).
April is Procrastination month, so it's fitting that we talk about this during this month's broadcast. Be sure to tune in live, get great info and bring your questions too!
Procrastination is that word we use to express the art of putting things off. But, it goes by many names. Names like Avoidance Behavior, Resistance, and Taking a Break to name a few. What is Procrastination and why do we embrace it with such reckless abandon? Lord Chesterfield said “Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today” about Procrastination. Conversely, Mark Twain said “Never put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.”
What is it that enables us to avoid the important “stuff” we should be doing? Stuff which might take only moments to do, often with very little effort, and would instantly relieve the pressure building in our brain? Why do we choose Stress over completing a task?
In this episode, Mordant & McFall explore the different forms Procrastination can take - Avoidance Behavior, Resistance, and the perceived need for Relaxation to name a few. If you’ve ever tossed your dreams or duty to the wayside, all for the sake of calming the restlessness assailing you, then this is the show for you. Don’t delay - listen in and learn why “Procrastination is opportunity's assassin” and how you can protect yourself and your dreams from its insidious assaults.
