Breaking Down Tasks

The Key to Overcoming Procrastination in Business!

Have you ever noticed that one task on your to-do list that just doesn’t seem to get done? You might tell yourself you’re too busy, but in reality, it keeps getting pushed back for less urgent tasks. It’s not about having the time; it’s about your brain playing defense against stepping out of your comfort zone.

Why It Happens: Your brain has a built-in mechanism to avoid the discomfort of new challenges. It’s a protective measure to keep you within familiar boundaries, but it can hinder your business growth.

How to Beat It:

1. Recognize: Understand that this delay is a subconscious tactic, not a lack of time.

2. Accountability: Team up with a colleague or a mentor from Success Positive who can help keep you accountable.

3. On-Ramps: Break down the daunting task into smaller, manageable actions. For instance, if preparing a business proposal feels overwhelming, start by outlining the key points for 10 minutes. Often, once you start, you’ll find the momentum to keep going.

By recognizing these subconscious tricks and creating ‘on-ramps,’ you can turn procrastination into productivity and drive your business forward!
