Stop procrastinating, get shit done.
**Make sure to check out the challenge at the bottom of this post!**
Isn’t it bizarre that you can sit in front of your computer for HOURS and then stand up and wonder to yourself… ‘what the heck did I just do?!’.
You may have learned some things, but you didn’t necessarily absorb them or retain them fully. You may have done some slightly productive things, but not the things that are really going to help you get ahead and achieve your desires.
It’s time to stop procrastinating, and to get some real shit done.
Do you often feel like you have absolutely nothing or little to show for your time? Do you ever wonder where all your time has gone?
We live in a digital world, and let’s face it: our digital tools can be the biggest time suck ever.
Lately, nearly everyone I meet seems to be suffering from a lack of productivity, and a good dose of procrastination:
I have clients struggling to focus and to stop procrastinating.
I have a mastermind partner feeling she gets very little done with her time.
I, myself, often find myself in this position too, with hours spent in front of the computer and seemingly little to show for it.
It’s time to kick time-wasting, digital procrastination in the butt for GOOD!
I am SO passionate about this.
I see it slowing myself down, and I see it slowing so many other people down too. That means, it MUST be slowing down how much good we are doing in the world; it MUST be slowing down our ability to reach our full potential; it MUST be slowing down the rate of positive change that is possible in our own lives, and in the world.
In my upcoming group program ’6 Weeks to Career Clarity’, I will be sharing with you exactly how to kick procrastination in the butt (it’s not what you think – and you won’t find it in a google search!). This will be worth the entire value of the program alone. (More on the program to come soon).
In the meantime, I want to introduce you to my friend Kyle. Kyle is the creator of diygenius.com, and he helps people find the resources they need to build the digital skills necessary to create awesome digital businesses.
Kyle is a big mindfulness fan (aka. being totally present with the task at hand, because this is the place from where genius & creativity truly flow). This means turning off Facebook, Youtube, your phone, your e-mail, extra windows on your browser, and every other possible distraction to be 100% mindful and focused on one single activity.
You will reduce stress in your life this way, you will reduce anxiety AND you will be more creative & productive (and my guess would be, you’ll also be happier!).
If you’re in Vancouver, Kyle is hosting an event next week on Tuesday the 11th, where he will be showing the ‘Mindfulness Documentary’, explaining exactly WHY mindfulness is so important in this day & age, and how we can live it more in our day-to-day lives.
This week, I am not presenting you with tips or techniques to bust procrastination (you can look those up elsewhere online… there’s tons of info. out there on the topic!). Instead, I am going to give you something that I believe will be more helpful.
This week, I am presenting you with a challenge; a challenge to help you stop procrastinating and get shit done.
Your challenge (should you choose to accept it) is this:
Spend one hour every day where you turn off the phone, don’t open any social media or e-mail, cut out any other distractions, and work on that big project/idea that you haven’t gotten to because you’ve been too busy doing all the small tasks, or you’ve been too busy wasting time in the digital world.
Do this, and watch magic happen.
Then, let us know what you are committing to working on over at the Impact Posse group on Facebook and there, you will be held accountable by others!
Don’t think about it, toss your lame excuses out the window, and DO IT.
Stop procrastinating, and get shit done this week.
I’m with you every step of the way.
PS – Expect more on this topic to come. The challenge is a good place to start, and I am committed to helping you overcome procrastination and the digital time-suck for good! Now stop procrastinating and go get shit done!
