You can avoid procrastinating.
Procrastination is the one thing that can cause you to fail faster than most other failures ever will. The lack of action ensures the lack of production.
What does it mean to avoid procrastination?
Fear causes procrastination
If you fear making a mistake, you wonít act. Not acting or postponing effort uses up your valuable time, and effective use of time is fuel to your success.
Lack of goals causes procrastination
The absence of daily goals can cause you to procrastinate. If donít know what to do, you wonít act. If you donít act, you procrastinate. When you procrastinate, you lose time. When you lose time, you lose money.
Lack of commitment causes procrastination
The will to do what you need to do requires commitment. Overcoming procrastination requires you to make a commitment that is stronger than your willingness to do nothing.
Remember what Shakespeare and Jim Rohn said about procrastinating:
Defer no time, delays have dangerous ends.
Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.
