If you’re dealing with procrastination there are likely 3 main culprits:

1. Clarity
2. Confidence
3. Perfectionism

——-

“Nothing clarifies like clarity.”

Make sure you’ve clearly identified what you want.

Write it down.

Ask yourself the “5 Whys”

Focus on the tiny habits & small steps you need to take to move in the direction of your objective.

——-

F.E.A.R. gets in the way of Confidence

F = Fusion (stuff your mind tells you that gets in the way when you get caught up in it)

E = Excessive goals (your goal is too big, or you lack the skills, or you lack the resources)

A = Avoidance of discomfort (unwillingness to make room for the discomfort this challenge brings)

R = Remoteness from values (losing touch with - or forgetting - what is important or meaningful about this)

——-

Perfect is the enemy of Progress

Silence your inner critic

Publish. Ship. Hit send. Make the call.

Excellence over Perfection
Excellence is “doing the right thing”
Perfection is “doing the thing right”

——-

If you sense you’re stuck and putting things off, ask yourself - what is getting in my way?

Clarity
Confidence
Perfectionism

And then tell yourself:

Putting it off doesn’t make it go away. Getting it done does.
