Statistics have shown that 20% of the world’s population grieves from procrastination and this number has quadrupled in the last 20 years. The major cause of procrastination and lack of motivation is confusion, vagueness and a fuzzy mind about what you need to do and for what reason. If you are serious about wanting to stop procrastination, then check out the following 5 Tips:

You can maintain your focus by doing simple things that can assist you in remembering your goals several times in a day. Things such as writing a post-it-note about your objectives and pasting it on a place where you will always see. You can also read your goals several times in a day.

You will have first drafts, in each step then when it’s done you go again editing, refining as you want. Besides part of any endeavor is consistently refining things as you get response on what is not working. Success means getting what is right and not what’s so effective. Therefore avoid perfectionism because it leads to procrastination.

#5: Do something difficult

If you have a behavior of evading things that may discomfort you, then you need to begin doing these hard things. Begin with things that cause small discomfort. By occasionally doings things against your will, you are exercising your willpower and also developing mental toughness to face difficulties when you meet them in your life. This way you will no longer be anxious and there will be no need to procrastinate difficult things.

Follow these strategies and surely you’ll see yourself moving forward in the right direction.

Find More Focus – 3 Tips

img_3084It is not all that hard for you to stay focused and concentrated on whatever you want to do in the workplace or in your life in general. There are many good tricks that you can use to become focused so you can fix up whatever you are
trying to manage.

1. Establish an environment that is conducive to your focus.
Many people often fail to focus because they may struggle to concentrate on whatever it is they want to do. If you keep a healthy environment going in your home or workplace then you should actually stay focused. This means that you have to clear out anything that you know can be a distraction to your work at large.

It’s also a good idea to make that environment comfortable. Keep chairs and other pieces of furniture that you know are comfortable ready for you and anyone else in your space to utilize.

2. Make sure that you prioritize everything that you are doing.
You must be fully aware of how much time you are spending with certain types of functions in mind. You’ll have to think about prioritizing different types of tasks based on what you know you can do first and what you feel you need to complete ahead of time.

You must prioritize everything that you are doing so you’ll control your efforts the right way. Plan your events ahead of time so you’ll know what you should be doing. This will provide you with solutions that are effective and sensible for whatever you want to complete.

3. Understand how you can manage stress in your life.
It’s easy to become distracted by different things because of the stress that might come about in your daily life. However, if you understand how to manage stress then you’ll easily figure out what you want to do with your life at large.

You need to especially encourage yourself to be a little more active and productive in whatever it is you want to do. Think less about what could go wrong in your life and think about how you’re going to use different ideas for what you plan on doing while also leaving in some extra time for work. This can be based on the stuff that might get in the way as you’re trying to do certain functions.

On a related note, think about scheduling some times for rest. If you give yourself a bit of time to rest then you need to think a little more about when you are going to fix up different issues over time. This is to give yourself more of an effort to take care of whatever you want to do.

Day 92 of 100 Days to Greatness: How do habits become habitual?


Everyone has habits in their life that they have developed over the years. Some of them are really good for you and others not so much. For example, you might have learned to brush your teeth every morning and every night before bed. This will keep your teeth healthy and it is a habit that will give you a better smile, save you big money at the dentist, and prevent a whole lot of pain and suffering (anyone who has ever had a dental extraction will agree wholeheartedly).

On the other hand, you might have developed the habit for procrastination. You definitely aren’t alone. Everyone procrastinates to some degree, and some people make it a way of life. Procrastination happens for many reasons. Sometimes it is the fear of success, the lack of confidence in achieving it and sometimes, it is just a lack of motivation.

It all starts with understanding the psychology behind your habits: how they form, what motivates you to perform them and how they become a permanent part of your life.

The first thing that you need to understand is that all habits – from brushing your teeth to recognizing and taking advantage of multi-million dollar business opportunities – are formed exactly the same way. The neurological process in forming habits is identical, and it doesn’t matter if it is a tiny habit, a major habit, a bad habit or a good one.

Understanding this is actually one of the most important things that you can do because it immediately tells you something about yourself – namely, that if you can teach yourself to brush your teeth twice or three times a day, without even thinking about it, then you can teach yourself anything.   You can have confidence in your ability to teach yourself any good habit that you want because you have already done it many times in your life.
