Is Procrastination holding you back?

So last month, I wrote about why we all procrastinate. The next step once you figure out why you are procrastinating is to ask yourself what resources you need to get the job done.

Outsourcing. It is a wonderful word, because it frees me up to do the things that I do best, the things only I can do. Each of us has talents and skills. Some you were born with or come naturally to you. Others you developed through hard work and persistence. Organizing a pantry may be something you enjoy doing, for example. Maybe your mother taught you how to rotate food and label shelves. But, say you dislike filing the bills after you’ve paid them every month. Does the “to file” pile bother you? Ask yourself– is the effort of procrastinating a task worth the time you spend thinking about it? How does the guilt of NOT filing that file affect you? Has it gotten to the point when it demotivates you? In other words, do you avoid opening that drawer to file what needs to be filed? If so, it is time to take action. Find the expert that will put a stop in that “leaky faucet,” that drain on your time, motivation and productivity.

I have started being proactive about some of the things I’ve been putting off. I’ve scheduled a meeting with a virtual assistant, Audrey Isbell, to help me with my social media duties because 1. Time is scarce and 2. I don’t want to do it. I believe it will be an hour well-spent.

Take stock of your situation: what is your goal for your business or your life? Would hiring a bookkeeper, a virtual assistant or an organizer free up the time you need each week to reach some of your big-picture goals?

Any time one of my blogs helps you, please take 30 seconds and forward it to a friend who needs to hear it! That’s how my business grows. Thanks and take care!
