As we draw to a close in 2015 it is time to assess how your year has been, and have you completed all those goals you wrote out last January.
If you didn’t have the best year, I’m going to show you how this will be your last non-productive year ever, so please keep reading or you’ll miss it.
You did have some goals for 2015, didn’t you? Of course you did. Everyone does. Everyone!
The only difference is, some people follow through with all their plans, and their lives keep getting better and better and others, well, continue to underperform.
So Why Do Some People Achieve Their Goals?
Well, a big part of their success is that they have mastered procrastination.
They don’t just plan out their goals. They TAKE ACTION!
Master procrastination and success will be knocking at your door too!
One of the biggest dilemmas we face in life is doing things we don’t want to do.
I’m sure you started off this year full of motivated ideas.
This is why January is the most profitable month of the year. Everyone has good intentions to begin the year.
A very common email I get from business owners is “How do you always keep so motivated? You’re like a machine”.
I think Procrastination stems from a few things but can loosely be grouped under.
- Lack of Understanding about the Journey and the Destination
- Poor Life Balance, and General Bad Health
- You Feel You’re Gonna Stuff Up
Lack of Understanding about the Journey and the Destination
You obviously need to be crystal clear what you want out of life. And if you honestly are not really sure yet, then you need to take some time out to get some clarity of where you’re heading.
The sure fire plan to nowhere is trying to plough forward, but you just end up chasing your tail.
The years will go by quickly and you’ll find it’s suddenly 2020 and you’re in exactly the same place you were in 2015.
We had a saying when I was in the army. “What, you were in the army?” Ok, ok, not the proper army. Just the Territorial Army or the TA as we say in the UK. But being in the TA did help my discipline and that helps me master Procrastination to this day.
So, ok, back to the army saying which consisted of the 7 P’s. “Proper Planning and Preparation Prevents Piss Poor Performance”.
Yes, a tad, crass. But there I said it. But it is true.
Another saying I’ve picked up along the way, although I can’t remember from where “”If you fail to plan, then you plan to Fail.”
Poor Life Balance, and General Bad Health
If you are drained of energy all the time and can’t seem to be motivated to do all the tasks you would like, then I might have the reason why.
It could be your poor diet.
It could be that you’re not getting enough quality sleep.
You might not be getting enough exercise.
Or it could be due to excessive exposure to bacteria. Do you wash your hands for 20 seconds after using the toilet?
Do you still use toilet paper?
Do you realize that bacteria can seep through as many as 10 sheets of toilet paper?
And I bet you don’t use nearly that many sheets?
And I also bet you don’t wash your hands for long enough under the hand washing guidelines by the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
I’d go as far to say, you’ll reach your intended destination in business at least a few years earlier if you give up toilet paper and start using The Bum Gun.
Some people might think that is absolute boloni, nonsense, crap talk. But those same people have not read the hundreds of documents of hygiene, and the effects of poor hygiene and exposure to bacteria that I have.
Plus those same people have not had 20+ years of experience of using The Bum Gun bidet sprayer and in the last 5 years working with hundreds of clients and end users and learning about their experiences.
Keep using toilet paper at your peril, or modernize your bathroom to the 21st century and watch your productivity boom, and your Procrastination drop.
