“Go Away Procrastination!”
If only it was that easy.
But the good news is that there is a way to make that happen without struggling.
You see, if you follow a routine practice long enough – it will work.
The trouble is that we give up on our routines too early.
I have learned – probably just like you – that if we don’t quit, we’ll get there.
Our job is to water and fertilize the seeds of our practices.
Like planting seeds in the ground, nature knows when it’s the right time for them to bear fruit.
And I don’t think we can go wrong trusting in nature.
Here is a simple 4 Step Practice to help you grow the seeds of your ability to stop procrastinating:
1) Write down the real reasons you want to stop procrastinating
What are you sacrificing by procrastinating and what is it costing you? What will you have and what will be possible once you stop?
2) Do the above procedure for everything for which you procrastinate.
3) Keep visualizing every day.
What your life will be like if you keep procrastinating? What your life will be like if you stop procrastinating?
4) Get someone reliable to hold you accountable to continuing your new routine.
Make Progress with the Right Executive Function Coach
As one of the 10+ million U.S. adults with ADD, I genuinely understand the challenges of living with ADHD as well as the positive results that can be achieved through coaching. With the help of a great executive functioning skills coach, adult ADHD treatment can change lives. With the right behaviors and coping mechanisms, it’s easier to overcome some of the worst symptoms. Those include distraction, lack of punctuality, untidiness, forgetfulness, failure to meet deadlines, and more.
By practicing these success strategies, performance at work can improve, too. Life at home will become more stable and relaxing. Enrich every important personal relationship. And most importantly, you’ll gain a new level of self-confidence.
