Mindset Monday 12/12/11- Cure Procrastination

Procrastinate later. In fact, I heard the procrastinators annual meeting was postponed…again!

Fanatically successful people usually prefer to do things NOW. If you want to be successful, you are going to want to get into the habit of acting now. Now is the only moment of power. Do plan ahead. Do have goals. Do think about the future. Do learn from the past. But ACT NOW.

The past already occurred, so you cannot change it, and you do not know what the future will hold. Now is when we reap the harvest of the past, now is when we plant the seeds for the future.

When you get the slightest urge to take productive action toward your goals, get up immediately and start moving in that direction. Do not sit and wait and let that burst of energy, that little feeling dissipate or disappear. Do not give yourself a chance to talk yourself out of it. Get good at recognizing that feeling- that moment when you first feel a pull to take action. Build on that momentum. That is what the greats do.

Get into taking action even when people around you are not doing so. You may have similar goals to other people in your life, but do not count on them to take action together. You are responsible for yourself. Be sure you take action regardless of what anyone else does.

Also, do not wait for perfect conditions to take action. There are exceptions to acting right now. But usually, most of the time, now is better than later. You may think, wait until things are better, well what if you wait and conditions become worse? What if you put it off and never get around to it? Someone who is Fanatical will act unless in rare extenuating circumstances.

Remember, the only time that is a gift is the PRESENT. Act now, Get Fanatical!
