[01:47] Procrastination and Distraction:

  • Procrastination happens when you avoid doing something you need to do.
  • It often occurs because of distractions like smartphones, video games, or people calling you.
  • A practical way to handle this is to remove the distractions. For example, keep your phone in another room while you work or, If you’re addicted to a game, uninstall it.
  • Just like you wouldn’t go into a bakery if you were trying to avoid donuts, you should avoid things that distract you from work.

[04:05] Personal Issues and Fear of Failure:

  • Sometimes, procrastination isn’t about the task itself but other personal issues that are bothering you.
  • These issues need to be resolved before so you can focus on your work. It’s like having an unfinished chapter in your life that needs to be closed.
  • Fear of failure is another big reason people procrastinate. 
  • You might worry that if you try and fail, people will see you as a failure. This fear can stop you from even starting a task.

[04:46] Redefining Success and Breaking Tasks Down:

  • Redefine success by setting goals based on actions you can control, not just the end results.
  • For example, instead of saying “I want to make $10,000 this month,” focus on smaller, controllable actions like writing one email a day or applying for five jobs a week.
  • Big tasks feel overwhelming, so divide them into smaller pieces that are easier for you to handle. 
  • Instead of thinking about writing an entire email sequence, start with writing just the subject line. 
  • This method of breaking tasks down helps you build momentum and makes it easier to start and keep going.
