Causes of Procrastination (LEARN HOW TO BEAT PROCRASTINATION!)

Have you ever wondered why you procrastinate so bad – and you would like to fix it?

Well, for you to fix it, you need to first know why you procrastinate.
Once, you can figure that out, you can focus on beating procrastination!

I share productivity tips for entrepreneurs who want to beat procrastination and get work done!

This is one of the quotes I have grown to love (thanks to my mom, who constantly repeated this to me as a child/teenager- a lot!)
“Never put off for tomorrow, what you can do today.”

How To Improve Your Focus As A Mom-preneur

FOCUS! FOCUS!! FOCUS!!!
“I can remember the lyrics to songs from 1992,
I can remember all the things my husband did wrong;
but I can’t remember where I put my keys!”
– Unknown
Being a Mom-Prenuer – Mom of two lil ones and Enterprenuer that works from home (literally anywhere in the home: from the kitchen to the bathroom!lol). I am usually asked this:

“Nike, How do you stay focussed?”
 

Today, I share 7 of my secrests to staying foccussed as an enterprenur-mom:

1. Prioritze your life:

We all have an endless to-do list! We know how overwhelming it can be when we are distracted or taken away from our current task. The distraction may be from well-meaning friends, our children or family members. To improve my focus, I have embraced the power of “NO” or “NOT RIGHT NOW”.

 

2. Nourish your concentration:

Coffee is great but too much coffee can be counter-productive – I’ve mentioned this is my previous post on Mom-exercise. I noticed that being a Mom-prenuer sometimes has an adverse effect on my food choices. Eating Vegetables, fruits (especially blueberries) and using Supplements (Such as Omega-3) helps boost focus.

 

3. Create Time blocks:

I love this concept of “Time blocks” – I teach this to moms in my Take Charge coaching program. This is a concept that allows me to group tasks into “Time – blocks”. It allows me to concentrate on that particular task and most importantly, because I have a rough idea of how long it will take to carry out the task within a particular Time – block, I can easily schedule when it will work or if my circumstance will allow each “Time-block”.

 

4. Don’t give in to overwhelm:

Overwhelm is the killer of focus. I ensure that I rid myself of things, circumstances that would make me feel overwhelmed. Having a To -Do list helps greatly because not only does it make me stay focussed, it also allows me to do a brain dump and I can clearly see what needs to be done!

 

5. Self care:

Take a Break. Schedule this! I can’t over stress this. Check out my post on Self Care Ideas for Ideas. When I see that I am loosing focus, I detach myself to care for myself.

 

6. Tackle the biggest task first:

I find that when I have a big task on my to do, it affects why concentration. I am constantly thinking about that big task and I dot focus on the task Im currently carrying out. To overcome this, I try as much as possible to deal with all my big tasks first. That way, I feel accomplished throughout the day and I also banish that “dreadful” feeling of a Pending big task!

7. Have a morning routine:

This is actually one of the most important point. The way I start my day sets the tone for my day. The things I do in the morning are: Pray, Meditate, Stretch/Exercise and then start my day. My mantra is this: “Don’t let your emails rule your life”

I love learning, please let me know if you have any other suggestions.

I’ll see you around
