It is terrific to know that you can stop procrastination when you learn to push yourself. Procrastination is that thing that makes you put off doing things.

In order to succeed, you must learn a way to push yourself to succeed. People who win the battle against procrastination and are leaders learn to push themselves to succeed.

One common feature of procrastinators is that they have a myriad of excuses. If you listen to their stories, there is always a reason why they don’t take action now and move. Interestingly, the more skilled the person is at procrastinating, the better and more elaborate the excuses.  In the end, it all comes down to the person herself. If you want to stop procrastinating you must find a way to push yourself, motivate yourself and force yourself to take action now.

It doesn’t matter how many how to books, inspirational seminars or get your butt in gear conversations a person has with other people. Until you find a way to push yourself into action, you will continue to procrastinate. You can read the articles, listen to the audiobooks, go to seminars hosted by experts. But the battle does not stop there. You must find a way to take what you learn and put it into action and to push yourself to win the battle against procrastination.



When fighting the war against procrastination, there are battles you will win and battles you will lose. There are some techniques you will try that fail miserably. Other techniques will work in miraculous ways. Then of course there will be techniques with results somewhere in the middle. Try all the techniques, tricks and tips you want in order to win your war against procrastination. When you find things that work, remember to get all you can and can all you get. In other words, find as many techniques that work for you as you are able to and remember everything you learn.

In conclusion, it is terrific to know you can stop procrastination when you learn to push yourself. So, the question for you this terrific day is, how do you push yourself to move?

  • I was just sitting here, right now, procrastinating on a project that I want to work on. I have a TON of excuses, too. Of course I come to your site and you give me a kick in the butt. Thanks for the motivation!

    • You know that saying," iron sharpens iron." When I need motivation to kick stuff up a notch I go check you out.

  • Such a good point. We have to constantly push ourselves in order to better ourselves.

  • I could definitely push myself more. I generally do pretty well at tasking, but if it's something I REALLY don't want to do, I'll sometimes put it on the back burner.

  • I procrastinate so much, but sometimes I find that when I wait last minute my best work shows through. But I should be better about it.

  • I'm REALLY good at procrastinating. I'm trying to be better about it!

  • I am a huge prorastinator. It is definitely something I want and need to work on.

  • I could use a push this week. My daughter starting school has been priority #1 and everything else is piling up!

  • procrastination is such a time waster! just do it already.
