Procrastination is the mother of all demons and can stop us from achieving what we want with our online business.

We’ve all done it at some time or other. We put off our exercise routine until tomorrow; we continually delay finishing that project when starting an online business.

Here are three effective processes we can all use to stop procrastinating.

Do not leave for later, but do it this moment.

Countdown from 5 to 1 and jump right in! Putting things off until the last minute is a bad habit. It is like all habits ingrained in our subconscious mind and hard to break. It feels like a regular thing to do, so we naturally continue along our path. To complete a task immediately may even feel strange or like a forced action. Get an idea of how great you will be feeling after completing the task.

Take baby steps to avoid procrastination

Sometimes we procrastinate because the task may be intimidating to us. Perhaps we have no possible notion of where to start. In these cases, the best way to start is to take it one step at a time. Say you are preparing a business plan, and for the 5th time this week, you’ve turned on the PC and looked at the blank screen. Or you’ve just remembered you need to do some more research before you begin. You tell yourself you’re still not ready. You only need to break down the project into smaller pieces and tackle each bit separately. Make each task an individual project and after completion of each one, celebrate and acknowledge your achievement.

Support team

Do you put off tasks because you feel that they are too big and complex for you to handle alone? Or because you need assistance? Be honest with yourself. 

 Ask for help! 

Many online resources can provide you with all you need to carry out your job. If you’re a solopreneur and putting off some automatic tasks, learn how to automate them instead. Procrastinating life-changing activities could be a result of fear of the unknown. Get a mastermind group together, find a mentor, join a support group. You don’t have to do it all by yourself. Ensure what feels good to you in whatever method you choose. You’ll surely postpone procrastination for a very long time.
