Procrastination will kill your online business. For this reason you must learn to treat it like a disease. You have to give yourself a little medicine every morning and every evening!
Start by writing down your online business goals and understand that they are goals. Remember that old cliche “Rome wasn’t built in a day?” The same goes with your business. Make the writing of your goals special and possibly even frame them above your desk so you can see them all the time. Sometimes it helps to attach pictures. Maybe it’s a house you want to buy when you start to show good profits. Possibly you desire to do some world traveling when you become wealthy so maybe you could attach pictures of the places you want to visit. Whatever the case may be you need something to constantly remind you of where you want to end up in your online business endeavors. Something to help keep procrastination in it’s place.
It has been proven that it takes 30 days for a person to form a habit. Get yourself into the habit of skimming through your goals every morning and every evening. On a separate sheet of paper or poster you should write down all the tasks that you know you need to do on a daily basis such as updating content, updating ads, updating blog, answering emails, writing articles, building website traffic, networking with other businesses and individuals and so forth. I don’t recommend framing this one because it’s possible that you will have to add to it regularly. Place this list above your desk also. Put it right next to your goals so you can easily read it every morning and evening too.
Don’t let your own procrastination get the best of you. Beat it at it’s own game. Treat it like a disease and after some time of doing this you will find yourself well on your way to enjoying a successful online business. Your goals are closer than you think.
