Procrasta Queen, No thank you!
Updated: Feb 2, 2021
Procrastination is the action of delaying or postponing something.
It is a common limiting belief that we procrastinate because we are lazy.
It isn’t the case at all. There are now proven reasons for being a procrasta queen that have nothing to do with laziness.
Procrastination creeps into all facets of our lives and ultimately undermines our confidence and our wellbeing. It manifests as fear and is detrimental to our ability to pursue goals, and that in turns increases stress and anxiety.
Why we procrastinate is fear of failure, fear of not knowing where to start, fear of not doing a good enough job, fear of feeling inadequate and fear of being stretched too thin.
So how do we work toward less procrastination in our lives?
Make a to-do list.
Cut the task into bite-size do-able chunks.
Physically cordon off the area/ task you want to work to a smaller space to maximise results.
Allocate a set time each week, be it daily or twice a week and away at the end of the designated time.
Celebrate your progress
Lastly to get you started, Try this five-minute rule:
Ask yourself, “What action can I take in less than five minutes today that moves this forward even the tiniest bit? “
I look forward to hearing about your progress. If you want to know how to tap into those limiting beliefs and say farewell to those fears and leave your Procrasta Queen thinking at the door! I would love to help you.
