One of the topics that I address in my book 'The Life Champion In You' as well as in my live motivational personal development talks and seminars is how to overcome procrastination. Are you a chronic procrastinator? Do you always end up putting important tasks aside? Do you always put things off resulting in endless delays? If the answer is yes, then you are certainly not alone. All of us have experienced major procrastination in our lives.
This is quite common for our goals like getting into shape, losing weight or plans to take up a new skill. Tasks that are unpleasant or involve hard work even though they can result in great benefits are especially prone to procrastination.
If you have been a procrastinator, in a way that’s okay. It turns out that some of the major goals in life cannot be achieved alone or in isolation. Sometimes we need help from other people as part of group efforts to help us achieve such goals. There is nothing wrong with this.
For example, let’s take exercise. Some folks can exercise on their own. However, many individuals cannot do this. These people need the help of others as part of a group effort in order to exercise. And that’s why we have fitness classes, fitness trainers, sports group sessions and other physical activities that involve more than one person at a time. These are all group efforts and there is absolutely nothing wrong with this.
When you have a group effort, it’s like a group of like-minded individuals teaming up to encourage and motivate each other to achieve goals. The right type of groups will have members who push each other to achieve goals as well as to keep each other accountable. These people will help us stay on top of our goals by helping us to stop procrastinating.
More than likely, we may not have enough of the right like-minded individuals to form effective groups from within our current social circles. Friends are often not effective as such group members. Friends as well as family members are often procrastinators in their own right and therefore they will not likely be very helpful to us in terms of overcoming our own procrastination habits.
Sometimes we have to go outside our current social circles to meet the right like-minded people to be part of effective groups that will help keep us accountable to our personal goals. That’s why organized groups in various interests are important to seek out especially if we want to overcome procrastination.
So in order to stop procrastinating, we have to first recognize that some of our goals cannot be achieved alone. We need others to help us as part of a group effort. Again, there is absolutely nothing wrong and no shame about this. Secondly, we need to find effective groups that will help us stay on top of our goals and keep us accountable. It’s the utilization of such effective groups with like-minded people that will help us finally put an end to our lifelong procrastination so we can achieve significant success in our lives.
