Yesterday you said “tomorrow”🤔
Instead of putting in work, you waste your time with miscellaneous things like checking email, social media, watching videos, surfing blogs and forums. You know you should be working, but you just don’t feel like doing anything.
Don’t let procrastination take over your life. Here, I will share my personal steps which I use to overcome procrastination with great success.
The #millmentor steps:
✔️Break your work into little steps.
Part of the reason why we procrastinate is because subconsciously, we find the work too overwhelming for us. Break it down into little parts, then focus on one part at the time.
✔️Change your environment.
Different environments have different impact on our productivity. Look at your work desk and your room. Do they make you want to work or do they make you want to snuggle and sleep? 🤔
✔️Create a detailed timeline with specific deadlines.
Having just 1 deadline for your work is like an invitation to procrastinate. That’s because we get the impression that we have time and keep pushing everything back, until it’s too late. Break down your project (check again tip numero 1), then create an overall timeline with specific deadlines for each small task.
✔️Hang out with people who inspire you to take action.
I’m pretty sure if you spend just 10 minutes talking to Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, you’ll be more inspired to act than if you spent the 10 minutes doing nothing.
Identify the people/friends/colleagues who trigger you, most likely the go-getters and hard workers and hang out with them more often. Soon you will inculcate their drive and spirit too. 🔥
Let me know if this tips help you with your damn bad habit 😉 (comment below)👇
But only a little bit of procrastination ....... everything in moderation ?? 🤔
Actually I’m a closet procrastinator....... not so “closet” for those that know me well 🙄 .
It’s said that procrastination serves our need for certainty
For me it’s more than that - in avoiding what I need to be doing the most, I am self sabotaging and also chipping away at my self esteem because I am not keeping my promises to myself of what I will achieve in a certain amount of time .
I am soooo good at this strategy I make an impossible list of things to do in a short amount of time and when I don’t achieve them I get to beat myself up a little bit more 😆 .
Crazy right ?? 🙄
How does this serve me ?
What is the secondary gain ?
What changes if I did this strategy differently ?
What’s on the other side of this ? .
The questions I now ask myself when I become aware of what I’m doing and when I’m ready to change ✅ .
Saturday morning shelfie. I do like to have a good think about books, about what I’ll read next, and how many books I’ve got still to read and my 100 book list (that I discussed a couple of posts back), and it’s not lost on me that if I didn’t spend so much time thinking about reading and gazing at my bookshelves, I’d be able to read more...
A favourite bookish time waster is on listchallenges.com where you select all the books you’ve read. The link to my 100 book challenge is in my profile - how many have you read?
⛰We all have had a Mount Everest of to-do's every once and a while (or that's daily life 😉). It's so easy to be overwhelmed with the 'shoulds' that we forget about what is actually important to work on. We've all had those days or months where we're busy but nothing seemingly is getting done. .
Never forget that your calendar is YOUR time, and that you get to have some control over that.
This week was a week of clearing out the clutter, making progress on the zombie tasks, and feeling much better about the whole process. If you have any other tips I'd love to hear them!
Card of the day: DON'T WAIT
It's time to decide in what you believe in and what your heart truly desires. No more procrastination.
Once you know what you want; make plans to get it . Now is the time. Believe that you can truly have what you want.
Consider what this message means in relationship to your question or situation. Especially if there is something you have been putting off or waiting on. This fairy is telling you not to wait any longer.

March 17th, 2018: The Star
This message is for anyone who reads this post 🔮✨ Are you holding back from following your heart? You may be harbouring a very special dream, that brings you emotional fulfillment, and 'happiness'. This is a form of creative self-expression, that allows you to be your true self, so to speak. This dream gives you a sense of 'release' and 'joy'. I am seeing a vision of a red heart to affirm this, too. If you can already relate to this message, I sense that there are others around you, attempting to dissuade you from following this path. I'm being told, that some may deem it as 'foolish'. It 'feels right' to you, nonetheless. This opportunity also feels like somewhat of a risk, and you may wonder if you are making a mistake in following this path. I'm being shown a vision of a person, standing at a fork at a crossroads. You have two paths to choose from, and you feel 'stuck' as to what to do, moving forwards. This is a major life decision. If you can resonate with this message, there is clearly an opportunity for a new beginning here. With The Star, the universe is calling you to have 'faith' in what the future holds for you, if you do decide to go down this particular path. I feel that for many of you, financial security is a concern, as I'm being shown a vision of a golden key. In response to this, I am seeing an image of a chest, full of golden coins. There are many successes 'in more ways than one', to be had in following this path. I'm also seeing a vision of a gold trophy to affirm this too. Additionally, I sense that your intuition is speaking to you incessantly at this time. I'm hearing, 'take heed'. You can 'trust' in what is being communicated to you. 'Feel the fear, and do it anyway'. Going after this dream will feel very freeing and emotionally renewing, as I feel that many of you are currently experiencing very unfulfilling circumstances in your life. Sometimes life asks us to take chances, that feel somewhat like a risk, and I sense that your faith is being tested in a major way, with the appearance of The Star. --Continued in the comments section below --
