I’ve been traveling non-stop for the past few months. From South Africa; to Savannah, Georgia; Orlando, Florida; to the United Kingdom – and now here I am, writing you from The Netherlands.
I’ve been traveling a lot, and have had a lot of inspiration from my environment. But one of the things I’m most proud of having transformed over the last few months is my work ethic.
I’ve always been a procrastinator. Ever since I was in school. I used to do the majority of my big projects at the last minute. I spoke to a teacher about it once and they hinted that maybe that’s just how I work best: when I have the pressure of a deadline looming.
And I believed that for a long time.
But over the past few months I’ve been training myself to overcome my procrastinating ways. And although I still have a long way to go, I’m proud of how far I’ve come so far. It’s something I’ve been deeply appreciating about myself these days, and so I wanted to share the shifts in mindset for me that have made all the difference, so that hopefully they can make all the difference for you too.

I can so relate to procrastination! I agree, it doesn’t serve me, I need to step it up and take on a new attitude.
Procrastination has slowed down my progress and is the main reason business hasn’t progressed to where it could’ve been. Aaarrrgggghhh! hate it
procrastination I can relate to this. I have been needing to go through my inventory and re take pictures, and sometimes that old habit of procrastination sets in. A work in progress to do that less.
Alex, your podcast was the perfect energy boost I desired today. Procrastination is a pattern that I’m determined to transform into a more useful behavior.. i.e. conscious thoughtful delay and only when beneficially essential. Otherwise – “Get it Done!” indeed. I am a life and relationship coach and a newly published author – the tasks that are on my list are the ones I would love to task out, however, I’m still at a solo stage of my business so getting them done myself is essential. Tasks such as websites, marketing emails and blogs etc. – all great and creative tasks where the “perfection” bug loves to land and …well.. bug me! So thank you for your very simple, clear, practical and brilliant list – very helpful. I feel supported. Now let’s both have a beautiful and productive day. xo P.S. I am signed up for your “make money being you” class. Looking forward to it. I appreciate you. 🙂 Christine
