Leverage is the answer.
I don't usually have a problem with procrastination, I am generally confident in my abilities and quite practical. If I have done something similar I just assume I can do it.
However there is one area that puts me in a spin, anything new that is technical and I "just know" it will cause me trouble. How silly when 10 year-olds can master computers, and play computer games with ease. Why do I have a road block? Am I wired differently or is it all in my belief system?
Probably my belief system is at fault according to the experts, maybe I should try some NLP, or (NLC according to Anthony Robbins). As I grew up in a more practical age, I think that is why I learnt those things easily and now electronic devices seem somewhat scary to master. However it seems I should gain some leverage and change the way I look at challenges.
This means making a list of all the gains achieved in completing a task, make it very powerful. Then make a list of all I will miss out on if I don't accomplish it. So that the pain of not doing the task is much greater than the imaginary pain I have been feeling when I road-blocked the task. We all move from pain to pleasure it is a case of transferring what brings us the most pleasure.
When I gain a burning desire to achieve something that outweighs the pain I perceive I will stop procrastinating and look forward to completing the task. Perhaps some lessons from a 10 year-old would help too!
I tried the method yesterday and a task I had been avoiding for 6 months with never-ending excuses became much easier, (unfortunately no youngsters were around to help me!) It's a great feeling when you beat the road blocks, try it and see what you can achieve!
Despite my technophobic tendencies I have an online business, and as I dissolve my challenges I love completing my new tasks; the satisfaction gained is amazing. What will your new achievements be?
