It’s time to flip the script.
If you’re like me, you’ve fallen victim to procrastination guilt – the feeling that something’s wrong with you, you’re broken, or you haven’t found your true “why” because you’re waiting until the last minute to get a certain task done.
The truth is, our perception of procrastination has been tremendously influenced by the unrealistic expectations of nonsense leadership books and mantras like “how we do anything is how we do everything.”
In today’s episode, we outline the reasons why this perception is off the mark, and how you can harness the power of procrastination. More specifically, we discuss:
- What the term procrastination actually means and what it is not (7:00)
- How procrastination and perfectionism are related and how to deal with it (11:15)
- Material Reference: Art of Coaching Podcast E190 – Why It Seems Like We Never Have Enough Time (18:00)
- How procrastination taps our inner adversity drives (18:10)
- Material Reference: Find Out What Drives You (18:30)
- The physiological effects of procrastination that can help and/or hurt you
