As an entrepreneur you’ve got to be damn good at what you do, damn good at marketing, and damn good at getting shit done.
And trust me…there’s always more to do.
If, on any given day, you’re determining what you’ll do and how you’ll spend your time based on what you “feel like” doing…it’s time for a lovin’ booty-kickin’. You cannot build, or sustain, a successful biz that way.
I’m a big fan of delegating wherever you can. When you recognize there’s something you really aren’t very good at or really can’t stand having to do, find someone else who’s good at it and loves it and delegate it. Get it off your to-do.
But even if you’re a pro at delegating, chances are there are still things you’d rather not have to do but that YOU have to get done.
If every time you’re faced with one of those tasks you find yourself procrastinating in the hopes that you’ll feel more like doing it tomorrow or the next day, or the next…you’re kidding yourself and, quite frankly…behaving like a spoiled brat rather than a responsible (and oh yeah…adult) biz owner.
And I’ll tell you now what your mother used to tell you anytime she asked you to do something and you started whining, “But I don’t feel like it!”
I don’t care if you don’t feel like it…do it ANYWAY.
Seriously. Knock that shit off. Right. Now. Quit whining and just get to it. In the end, you’ll likely discover that the task itself didn’t take nearly as much time or energy as whining about not wanting to do it did.
What have you been procrastinating doing because you don’t feel like doing it? Want to really give yourself a kick in the pants? Make a public commitment in the comments below to get whatever it is done. Now. Today. Have you recently finally completed a long-procrastinated task? How did it feel to finally get it done? Share your story…it might provide just the inspiration someone else needs to get movin’.
