Procrastination-why lie to yourself?

We have an idiom around procrastination “putting it off til later…”  Guess what?  Later never comes!  I’m working with several clients around just not doing something-hang a picture, bake a cake or even, following up after a networking event or cold calling!  Now, a few are in sales and truly are expected to make so many calls per day! And of course, following up with those you met at a networking event is a must!  They know this!  Are  they doing what they know is required?  Nope.

One told me we talked of accountability and the best way to motivate and be of support.  She confessed that she would probably lie to me just as she lies to herself!  Wow, that confession got me thinking about what purpose does it serve to lie to yourself?  C’mon, who are you hurting?  You.  Does it make you feel better?  Maybe.  But, those calls still aren’t done.  After our coaching call, she did her agreed upon five calls.  She’d said she had to make 25-30 calls per day.  I said-let’s break it down into mini-tasks,five calls..with option of making five more cold calls.

This is just the first Momentum Mastermind Group Coaching call and already she had an “aha” and a success!  She called to briefly update me-she did the five cold calls then, and she did 60 more and has three appointments! $$$!  Think I’ll break into my happy dance!

  2. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think
    I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for
    me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get
    the hang of it!
