Procrastinating ~ delaying something you know must be done, can stop you achieving what you need to get done. Not only can it really hold you back for reaching your goals, it can also prevent you from reaching your true potential. So why do you, I and so many others procrastinate?
It’s easy! It’s really the easier option to choose, do you work or do you do nothing? Which is easier? See what I mean. You see Procrastination can be fueled by 3 main areas:
- When the task at hand is either super boring
- When the task at hand is quite challenging or difficult.
- Or simply when you’re tired.
Tiredness you can remedy by long-term making more time for yourself to take time out and resting, or short-term coffee (if you’re a bit like me), but the other two can be a bit more tricker to handle. This is where Loving The Process is going to be your secret weapon to stopping you from procrastinating.
Have you ever noticed how no matter how tired you are or how busy you may be, if you really enjoy what you’re doing you’ll make time for it, and you’ll manage to find that much-needed extra energy to get it done? It wasn’t until I really understood the importance of learning how to love the process I began to notice how my whole way of working and planning changed, and when you learn this technique you’ll instantly see you too will start to procrastinate less.
Loving The Process
Loving The Process can be split into two parts:
- Creating very tailored specific mini-steps within your task
- Making Your Mini-Steps Enjoyable
One of my favorite motivational quotes for Loving the Process comes from one of greatest heavyweights in the history of boxing – Muhammad Ali:
