Procrastination Equals Poverty! The Right Time is NOW!

Last Update: May 03, 2016

Are you waiting on the “Perfect Time” to do, respond, act or otherwise delay something? It’s a habit a lot of us have, myself included. I took a seminar with T. Harv Eker (read; money making Guru- Millionaire Mind series), and I really got hooked on this one thing- there is NEVER a good time. I learned that the best time is NOW. Let’s assume for sake of example we are talking about launching a new website. You cannot wait until it is perfect with all the information loaded and all pages complete. You are losing money during that time when you could be building brand awareness. All you have to do is let people know that the site is a work in progress. Even better, and ask them for feedback and engage your readers.

The WORST parts of waiting until it is perfect, is that (1) it will never be perfect, and (2) perfection = procrastination which = POVERTY! Yup poverty, for every day that you lose, you are losing precious sales or contacts for referrals, or media requests. All things that would generate revenue. So seeing it in this light shows you the importance of not waiting for perfection. Many of us, again myself included, are perfectionists and the pursuit of it can be very costly. I have learned the lesson that there is never a perfect time, the perfect time is NOW. Besides if you know about the 80/20 rule (if you don’t you are going to love this one!), only 20% of your work really has to be perfect, like a Proposal for a Client or Job Application, but emails you send to your friends or co-workers do not have to be. Nor do internal first draft reports, the final yes.

Once you realize that the best time is now, you will solve your procrastination issues and hence….. your financial position. Your business will grow faster and you will be willing to take more risks that can pay off nicely.

One of the best solutions for procrastination is from one of the world’s leading hypnotherapists Steve G. Jones. I have used many of his products. It’s inexpensive and worth every penny!

Procrastination is a bad habit that we must eliminate from our character. It's possible to break it with consistency and persistence.

I used to be and still am having a problem with procrastination myself. So when I find myself saying "I'll do that later", I ask myself - "why can't I do that now" if i have no good answer then i take the words of Nike corp, and Just Do It! I always feel better and like I have accomplished something when I do. So, i try to remember how great I am going to feel when it is finished- it's a good motivator.

Hey, great topic, and I agree procrastination does not lead anywhere, take it from someone who still procrastinates about almost everything, though i promise I'm getting better and working on doing things immediately. It is always better to live in the now rather than waiting till later.

good point. just tackle one thing you procrastinate on at a time. it will be easier, it takes 21 days to make a new habit. so do one thing for 21 days and then it will be part of your nature then move on to another item.
