You already know why you should quit smoking and the difference it will make to your health. But it’s so easy to procrastinate when it comes to doing something challenging… I know… it has happened to me many times and it continues to happen each time I take on something new and challenging.
2 things that can hold us all back are fear and procrastination… procrastination is usually caused by a fear of failure, and because of this we make excuses to do anything else, no matter how pointless other tasks are, we will do those instead, even at the expense of doing the most important things.
But here’s the thing; it has happened to everyone at some time or another… even the most accomplished people! They just learn to handle their fear knowing that it is usually false. They take action and persist no matter what. They weren’t born with this ability… no one is. They just learn how to handle their fear so it doesn’t make them procrastinate. How?…
It’s actually simpler than most people think… take action, no matter how bad you feel. MAKE A START, no matter how small… this can be as little as doing 10 minutes on a task.
Because when you do this, something amazing happens, you start a momentum and want to do more… you may even finish the task completely.
If you don’t feel like doing 10 minutes, do just 5 minutes. If the task is part of a routine, just start the routine… put on your gym clothes and start making your way to the gym. If you are writing an article, start the article and write the first paragraph… this is what I just did and now I have a whole email!
Even when I think I have writers block, I just start writing like mad, and before I know it, I’ve written 475 words! It doesn’t have to be perfect (as with anything)… you’ve done the hard work, you can always go back and tidy it up later… that’s the easy part.
When we believe something is hard, we believe we will fail so make it harder on ourselves… and we are more likely to procrastinate based on our fear of failure.
When we make the task easier on ourselves by breaking it down into steps and just focusing on each step, it becomes easier… and when we believe something is easy, we are more likely to do it… its human nature.
No matter how big and challenging the task, it can always be broken down into smaller and more manageable steps. And if you just focus on each step, you won’t overwhelm yourself.
Give it a go and see!
