One of the major causes of “knowing what to do but not doing it” is procrastination. If you are struggling with procrastination, welcome to the human race. Procrastination seems to be part of our DNA — everyone struggles with it.
The good news is that there is a way to overcome procrastination. And it’s super easy, too. The secret is …
Take One Small Step. For example, if you tend to procrastinate about making customer service calls, think of the smallest possible step you can take right now that will eventually lead you to making those calls. For example, make a list of 5 people you want to call. That’s it. Just do that much today.
Tomorrow, do the next step. Perhaps make 1 phone call.
It may seem counterintuitive, but continuing to take one small step each day will eventually lead you into taking bigger and bigger steps — which creates momentum and getting the job done.
Whenever you struggle with procrastination, think, “what one tiny step can I take right now?” Then do it. Before you know it, you’ll be clearing off all the dreaded items from your To-Do List and getting the results you are looking for! It’s a great weight off your shoulders!
