Procrastination is the enemy of productivity. It’s an annoying, relentless foe that holds you back, saps your energy, and keeps you from taking action, staying motivated, and reaching your goals.
Procrastination has many faces…from feeling overwhelmed by the task at hand to simply being lazy. No matter its form, it’s a negative force that undermines your confidence and self-esteem. And, when your business depends on constant productivity…well then procrastination spells doom for your business!
Check these 3 tips to overcome procrastination:
Step number 1. Concentrate on what you want to achieve.
The most crucial thing, in my view, is to remember why you have to do something, why you want to make this happen. When you really realize that, you will start taking action. It is the fact that actions, rather than thinking, are what truly helps you overcome procrastination.

Step number 2. Change the way you’re thinking.
It is critical to modify your thinking to get what you want. Here is a brief example from my life: I constantly felt unsupported by the universe. Everything turned out to be problematic for me: something was broken, nothing worked correctly, or I thought, “Oh my, this is not for me because I’m not good enough”.
The way you think influences the way you live, not only financially, but also mentally. Your thoughts determine your lifestyle, so if you alter your thinking, your life will change for the better. My business began to flourish, my family become much stronger, once I changed my thinking. When I think about problems positively, I try to find another way to handle them.

Step number 3. ‘Eat the ugliest frog first‘.
What’s the best way to deal with procrastination? I recommend you read two of Brian Tracy’s books:
– first, it is “Time management”. You can learn a lot from this little book. Here are some things you can take away from it. We don’t have control over our time, but we do have control over our lives. To lead a productive life, you just have to make the right choices and think positively. It’s most significant to ask yourself whether anything would drastically alter your life if you did this thing. That’s all you need to do.
– second book is "Eat that frog first", and that's why I call this point 'eat your ugliest frog first'. When planning your day, start with the task you desire the least. If the task is important to achieve any sort of goals for the day, week, or results, then eat the ugliest frog first.
If you take the right steps at the right time, you will achieve results you never could have imagined. That's all there is to it. Don't put off finishing that project, and I promise you will reach the top. When I stopped procrastinating, I transformed my life.
