Everyone is prone to procrastination. The bigger the goal ahead of us is, the more we hesitate. We all fall into that procrastination loop and have trouble getting out of it. The worst thing is that we don’t even realize we’re in a loop until we are done with all the housework, but still haven’t started our urgent daily tasks. (a major problem for.. uh.. any entrepreneur!)
Here is another noteworthy thing, procrastination isn’t laziness. You can be running around, doing errands, working more than usual, but if you’re ignoring that single urgent task, you’re procrastinating.
To hack out of that loop, you can do two things. The first is to remind yourself why. Tell yourself what you are going to get from an action and why you started to do it in the first place. That is also called rationalization.
The second thing is to tell a friend. You will have to ask for help (kind of intimidating, I know) and let them keep track of your progress. People do more if they know they promised something to someone.
Remember, you’re not the only one fighting that battle. Good luck!
