Is Procrastination Killing Your Business?

Is Procrastination Killing Your Business?

How much time do you waste on the internet surfing, checking out other sites, posting to message boards and social media sites? Are you spending valuable time on these activities when you are supposed to be working? Have you ever calculated the time spent in non productive work?

If not, you could be quietly killing your business and not even realize it!

We all have those projects we really want to get done, but just don’t want to spend the time doing it.
“It is such a super idea, but it is soooooo much work!”
“I have all this laundry looking at me.”
“I have to check my email in case someone needs something.”
“I need to check my networks one more time in case, in case in case….”

Sound Familiar?

You know the old joke “How do you eat an elephant?” The answer “One bite at a time”. Well that is what we need to do with our large projects we just can’t get our hands around. That is what we need to think about when we are surfing instead of writing or creating or selling.

If we do not work “One Bite at a Time”, how we will we ever reach our goals and create what our dreams are made of? Don’t let Procrastination Kill your Business! In this time and environment of sales and marketing, the time you are wasting is the time your competitor is spending building her business and affecting your business!

  1. You are so right about this Chris, I have to admit that if I don’t do a to-do list and keep it in front of me until I check all the items on that list, I tend to just waste my time doing things that are not “money making activities” Thank you for this article, I know (I hope) I’m not alone..

  2. Chris, have you been peeking in my window and seen me surfing?! hahaha This is ME!!! And you’re so right. As I do it, I think, I need to be at the store, or go someplace where I can share products, samples, plant seeds about bookings, whatever. Thanks for the extra kick in the pants to help remind me to GET UP and GET OUT AND SHARE!!! 🙂
