15mins to Action - How To Stop Procrastination
Nothing can hamper your ability to take action more than procrastination, the enemy of productivity.
In this week’s special episode, Nick talks you through the ways in which you can stop stalling and start stepping up!
Procrastination is the force by which we are attracted to instant gratification, instead of our long-term goals.
Instant gratification is more alluring to our present selves, as we can see the benefit immediately. By moving the future rewards closer to our present, we can better focus on, and achieve them.
The best way to beat the feeling of procrastination is by starting the work itself. Even incremental acts can begin momentum that will drive us forward.
Temptation bundling, or the act of linking an activity that takes work with one that gives us pleasure, can increase productivity and prevent procrastination.
‘Present self has the ability to take action, but future self has the ability to set goals’
‘You make your future consequences become your present consequences’
’The problem is not doing the work, but starting the work’
’The key to procrastination is consistency'
