Dealing with Daily Distractions – Episode 2 – How to Deal with Distractions and Get More Done – Part 3
Procrastination can cripple the business. In this business training episode, Clay Clark, business coach and former US Small Business Administration Entrepreneur of the Year, discusses with a local business owner and entrepreneur about how to avoid procrastination. Because procrastination is the concept of being lazy in putting off what needs to be done, you must create shredded cheese that will keep you from participating in this fatal disease. Whether that is creating a time and place where you complete all of your action items for the day, or you have a certain song that you must listen to, or you have an accountability partner that is constantly pushing you to get done the things that you are putting off, you must use some type of system to avoid procrastination. If you are constantly waiting to complete certain task, you will find yourself less effective than you need to be in order to start or grow business. Some entrepreneurs Will procrastinate until the amount of work has accumulated to be so high that they simply default on the things that they need to do. They have no other option other than to delete the entire list and start over. In this scenario nothing gets completed, and you end up feeling discouraged. Create a momentum for your day by starting with making your bed in the morning. It is one of the easiest test to start the day with, and at the end of the day, regardless if you did not complete another task, you will come home to a sense of achievement. It is a simple strategy to begin creating momentum within your work day. Dealing with distractions can be difficult to overcome, but with these strategies, you will become a more effective business owner.
