You CAN!

Yesterday carrying over items on my to-do list from the day before, I had to admit that some are there because I’ve been procrastinating…

As I believe procrastination is a symptom and not a problem, I need to look inward to see what the real problem is. Some items are just not high priority but several items are related to tech issues. I just look at them and feel overwhelmed! I did try to resolve one today, and after several hours have only a high level of frustration to show for it. On these kinds of issues, it’s best to ask for help. Unfortunately all the people I asked couldn’t help either! So YouTube with EFT tapping it will have to be…

There’s always an emotion or a belief (or both) under procrastination. The task you’re avoiding triggers something that you don’t want to deal with, and that is the real issue, not the task! Often you don’t know what the underlying issue is because procrastination is a form of freeze which also fogs your mind. The best way to deal with freeze is to calm your nervous system. My favourite way to do this is Emotional Freedom Techniques as it calms the fight/flight/freeze response. Another easy way is to slow and deepen your breathing as when stressed you breathe more rapidly and shallowly. Try the 4-7-8 technique: breathe in through your nose into the bottom of your lungs to the count of 4, hold for 7 and breathe out to the count of 8. Repeat until you feel calm.

This will help you face the task, but to really breakthrough the procrastination you need to resolve the underlying issue. That is best done with the help of a trained practitioner. Call me if you’d like to breakthrough procrastination to save yourself time, money, health, success, confidence, and change your life!

You CAN breakthrough procrastination – it’s not about will power
