Reducing Procrastination

CUSTOM JAVASCRIPT / HTML

Case Study

When Danielle joined Optimize Your Brain, she already 5 years in business.
The challenge was, Danielle tended to leave everything to the last minute – whether it was small tasks like Amazon returns or big projects like writing email sequences, if the deadline wasn't just around the corner, she wasn't doing it.

This tendency caused a ton of stress as the task still lingered in her mind even when she was putting things off.

Despite struggling with procrastination in so many areas, by the end of the program, Danielle drastically reduced procrastination and she’s able to identify the reason she is procrastinating if it ever comes up again.

Thinking Skills

While you are doing any task, you (without even realizing it!) are using your 28 thinking skills.

When the thinking skills you need to use are strong, doing the task is easy.
If the thinking skill you need to use is weak, doing the task will be a challenge.

The struggle that Danielle had, came from many weak thinking skills including clear perception, working memory, categorizations and more.

Understanding Procrastination

Your brain is wired for survival and doesn’t want to work hard.

If the task is challenging you’ll often find yourself procrastinating on it.
You want to understand WHY you are struggling with this task so that way you know what you need to work on.

Reducing Procrastination - 2 Strategies

With Danielle, I had her ask herself, any time she’d find herself procrastinating “What part of this task is a challenge?”
Once she identified the specific part of the task that was a challenge, she’d create 2 strategies:

1. Short-term strategy - to get through the task right now. This often looked like finding a way to make it fun or easier.

2. Long term strategy - so the task is no longer a challenge. This was related to a thinking skill.
For example, if she was procrastinating on writing an email sequence, she’d first ask, what part of this task is a challenge?

In Daniell’s case, it was organizing all her thoughts and putting them in an order that would be most beneficial for the reader and of course bring in the most money.

So she came up with 2 strategies:

1. For right now, she’ll just dump everything out on a Google doc. Once it’s all out, she’d use colored index cards to plan out the order.

2. Seeing the big picture and what goes together with what comes from the thinking skill of categorizations, so in Optimize Your Brain, we did specific exercises that improved categorizations so putting information in order was easy for Danielle.

It’s important to note, that I wasn’t there every time Danielle was procrastinating. I wanted her to be able to figure out what to do the moment she finds herself procrastinating.

All I did was help her brain be able to identify procrastination the minute it starts creeping up and to come up with short-term and long-term strategies to do on her own. You can do the same.

Midway through the program, Danielle shared with me: “I’m noticing before I do things, what’s stopping me, what’s holding me back?”

I want you to be able to notice it too, so you too, like Danielle can solve the root cause of your procrastination.
