Procrastination Hacks

Let’s talk about procrastination.

Sometimes it feels really tempting to avoid the things we know we need to do for our business.

Why?

Because growing a business involves a lot of things that…

  • You don’t know how to do
  • Make you uncomfortable
  • Make you feel like a beginner again

…and it’s human nature to want to feel masterful and comfortable in our day-to-day responsibilities.

So today, sister I’m inviting you to breathe into any feeling of unknown or overwhelm you may be facing and accept that it’s part of the entrepreneurial territory.

Here are my top procrastination hacks, so you can get out there and conquer your week with biz-building action.

Be kind to yourself.

The more ambition you have… the more gentle you need to be with yourself. Infuse more self-love and self-care practices into your day to fuel your mind, body, and spirit with the power to do all the things.

Pace yourself.

Building a life-changing business is not a sprint. It’s a marathon. You don’t need to spend each day painting a masterpiece. Most days, you just need to get a little paint on the canvas. Don’t spin into overwhelm by feeling you need to do it all at once.

Conquer your fears.

Fear is often an underlying driver of avoidance. You may be afraid of…

  • Past failures
  • Responsibility
  • Leaving others behind
  • Feeling unworthy of your success
  • Not being able to deliver

If any of these fears resonate with you, it’s time to face it. Remember that it’s not an accident that you have a one-of-a-kind gift for changing lives, and the world needs your business.

Feel your feelings.

Unfelt feelings and uncried tears will build up in your system. If you’re walking away with too many unprocessed feelings, like anger or rage, you may not have the capacity you need to be the most productive version of yourself. 

Take a break.

If you need a break… 

Take it. Step away for a day to relax on the beach, go for a hike, or fill the day with your favorite things. Relax and refuel, then return ready to show up for your business. 

Add movement to your day.

Dedicating moments in your day for dance, yoga, or martial arts can help you move and reshift your energy… helping you break free from that “I don’t feel like doing the work” feeling.

Find a buddy.

Partner with someone who can save space with you and hold you accountable for growing your business. There is a community of sisters who would love to support you in our Sisterhood of 50,000+ purpose-driven women entrepreneurs.

I hope these hacks help you get to the other side of procrastination…because you’ll feel amazing when you move through it.

When you conquer your fears – and your task list – feelings of hope and self-love are waiting for you on the other side. 

Plus, when you do the work, lives will change, and that’s why you started this business.

Here’s an action step:

Carve out time for the thing you know will help you grow your business the most (and tell me what it is in the comments!)

Let’s make it an amazing week, beauty!

Your clients are waiting for you.

Let’s do this thing…together.

Love,
Sage

“We can only be as kind to others as we are to ourselves…It’s not about creating a masterpiece every day…If you need a break, take a break.” This and the “unfelt feelings” is me right now. I am weighed down and not really in the best position to help everyone else. I know it and it’s holding up some of my marketing work. This is not procrastination for me so much as it is the need to balance my life and my business. Thank you, Sage!

As Zig Ziglar say’s “If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.” So, I recognize each baby step I take, no matter its size to push me through the procrastination moments. Thank you Sage, for sharing the simple steps we need to keep reminding ourselves to follow to find ourselves on the other side of Greatness!

Thank you Sage, I really needed this right now. I have saved it and will listen to it daily. I am going through a stage of re-igniting my passion as I go through reprogramming my subconscious after a 6 year journey of my mother living with Alzheimers and finally passing 7 weeks ago. I work with children and love being in their energy and my vision is to effect positive change in children. I have so many ideas and find it difficult to focus…..”a confused person does nothing”. As you said, and I also believe, procrastination is based in fear so, now my mum has gone, I have no excuses as I have the time to feel into my fears and move forward into my vision. Again, THANK YOU 🙂
