The best tip I’ve heard on overcoming procrastination and creating peace of mind came from @rayedwards
One of my favorite virtual mentors is Ray Edwards.
He has a podcast.
He gave this tip on how you can escape procrastinating and how you can have more mental peace and get some headspace when you need it.
What he talked about was:
- Typically you’re going to have something like one or two projects you know you ought to be doing — that you’ve been putting off for awhile. That’s just the way a lot of us function.
- And he said it’s crowding into your mental space. It’s depriving you of your peace.
- Commit today: I’m going to take 30 minutes and I’m going to spend it getting started on that project.
Now, I know it could be a sprawling project. It could take longer than that. But just get started for 30 minutes, and then you’re done. Or if you feel like it, continue.
But, very often, that’s all it takes. It’s just that decision. And that will really help you clear out your mental space.
