Take The Test – How Well Do You Procrastinate?

Aug 8, 2016

Are you one of the 95% of people who procrastinate? As a business owner who works alone it can be a real problem.

How often do you set out with the best intentions, but don’t achieve what you wanted to do?

Lets see if we can help you understand how badly you procrastinate

You sit down at your desk and try to write, but words just don’t appear. You try, but before long you are over on Facebook or checking Twitter. You’ve chatted to some friends, checked out a group or two, and followed a few links to some interesting videos. All of a sudden its coffee time, and you decide to have a well earned break, after all you have been sitting at your desk for two hours now……

The day goes on in the same vein, until you discover at 5pm you have achieved very little of the master plan thats going to help you conquer the universe.

Does that sound like you? Perhaps you procrastinate in other ways. Do you put off important tasks till the last minute and then suddenly find you have missed the deadline for something. Perhaps its booking that hotel room for your next business trip,  and by the time you do the best hotels are already full.

Most of us are guilty of not doing the things we should. Many many more of us are becoming lone workers, theres no-one there to motivate us to do the things we should be doing, or to provide us with that accountability to make sure important tasks get completed.

I defer tasks past what is sensible
When there is something I ought to do, I do it before going to less important tasks
There are parts of my life I put off despite the fact that I know I shouldn't
I invest my time wisely
I do everything when I believe it needs to be done
I delay things so long that my prosperity or effectiveness pointlessly suffers
I regularly regret not getting round to tasks sooner
When i ought to do one task, I will do another
When I review the day I know I could have invested my energy better
