Procrastination Strategies: Boost Your Productivity by Getting On With It
We all suffer from procrastination from time to time but rather than fight it, think of procrastination as a gift. This gift allows you to get clarity on what is important to you and what you should work on next. Change your thinking when it comes to procrastination.
Accept it. Stop beating yourself up and just accept that you are procrastinating. Don't waste energy with guilty feelings or negative self-talk, instead say this statement out loud: "I am procrastinating and I choose to be productive" - this will remind you to change your attitude and help you to take charge of your actions.
Which is it? There are typically two types of things we procrastinate: those tasks or activities which are deadline driven (and which we don't like doing) that we always leave until the last minute; and those little things we'd like to do, or should do, which aren't urgent that we just never get around to.
For the first type of procrastination - identify those regular or important activities that typically cause you to procrastinate. Is there something you particularly don't enjoy, such as writing proposals or completing staff performance reviews, which you know you always defer? Next time these come around, remind yourself that you know you have procrastinated in the past and choose to be productive instead.
For the second type of procrastination - keep a file with tasks or activities that are not urgent but that you want to complete, such as articles you want to read or letters you want to write. Choose to complete just one task from this file every week.
Stick to your list. When you are finding it really difficult to complete activities, promise yourself you will stick to your diary. Make sure the activities you are procrastinating are on your 'to do' list and work through them in the order they are prioritised - whether you feel like it or not. This way you'll get the job done and have the satisfaction of ticking-it-off your list.
Set a timeframe. Allow yourself a designated amount of time to spend on or to complete the activity. Set your electronic calendar alarm to rescue you once your time is up!
Move! If you're getting stuck in a procrastination mindset, break your pattern - get up from your desk, go for a walk around the office, make a coffee or get some fresh air. Changing your location for a few minutes may be the kick-start you need.
Get a 'Procrastination Pal'. No, not someone you can procrastinate with! Identify someone you can call when you are procrastinating who will help you get on track. Let them know they are your designated 'Procrastination Pal' and when you call them they have permission to help you get focused and moving.
Reward yourself. Especially if it is a task you don't enjoy, make a point of rewarding yourself when it's completed. Give yourself something to look forward to as an incentive.

What Is The Value In Wanting To Accomplish Something?
When I listen to people tell me about some of the things they want to do, I pause for two reasons. One is the fact that I'm listening and watching them to see if they are serious within themselves.
Being Genuinely Curious
Yesterday at the dinner table, my eleven-year-old daughter asked me, "Aren't there times when you absolutely know you're right and the other person is wrong?" She had a disagreement at school that day and believed that her view was the truth. I said, "I used to think I was always right and that other people were wrong.
How to Change Your Negative Reality

Wake Up to the Life You Love
While speaking at a San Diego university recently, I was fortunate that I was not asked to leave the stage. You see, I chose to share with the students in my audience some frightening statistics.
Dont Let Failure Go To Your Head
I watched as an 8-year-old All-Star slid dramatically into second base. Yet the umpire gave the dreaded signal, "Out!" The crowd yelled, "That's OK.
Fear Emotions - Positive or Negative?
What is fear's purpose? How do you handle it? While I am working in my pest control business, I meet people on an almost daily basis who are influenced by negative fear thoughts regarding pests invading their premises. A good size spider, rat, or unexpected insect can set someone off pretty quickly, and literally immobilize them.
Seeing Through the Pain
We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.~ Jim RohnNothing lasts-not even pain.
Finding Motivation: What To Do When You Dont Feel Like Doing Anything
"The measure of your success usually comes down to who wins the battle that rages between the two of you. The 'you' who wants to stop, give up, or take it easy, and the 'you' who chooses to beat back that which would stand in the way of your success - complacency.

Stop Procrastination--Just Do It!
In this article I'll talk about the reason that stops most of Internet entrepreneurs from succeeding online.Have you ever wondered why only about 5% of us are actually making money online?

Our Life - Our Choice
OK, maybe that's a bit of an overgeneralization but it applies most of the time. Basically, what I am saying is that we are what we are because that's what we've decided to be.
Keep the Channel Open
Why do you do what you do? What is your real work in the world, and why is it important to know the answer?I'm an entrepreneur at heart. I have started and run several businesses, and as I look back, I think the most important element in financial and personal success is awareness of purpose and the capacity to stay open to it.
Discover Your Purpose In Life
Everyone has a life purpose; a unique and special something each of us is supposed to do in LIFE. A life purpose is not a specific job or career, it is much deeper and much more fulfilling.
Harnessing the Power of the Unknown: Move from Repeating the Past to Re-inventing the Future
The Unknown - it is scary territory for many, something to be avoided for others and shameful for those who feel they are supposed to know everything. What is your relationship with the Unknown? Take a moment to ponder it because your attitude towards and experience of this is what governs your ability to create, to innovate and truly bring more of yourself out into the world - in short to be successful.
Questions for the Game of Life
"If you could eliminate one day from your past so that you never had to live through it, what day would you erase?""If you could ask a single question of a dead relative, what would it be and of whom would you ask it?"-----These questions come from a little book I've been reading as a way to begin the New Year.
