Beat Procrastination – Keeping In Your Comfort Zone

Procrastination is not an easy habit/belief/behaviour to overcome.

Procrastination is hardwired into our subconscious – which leads to conscious thoughts such as, “I’ll do it later”, “I’ll finish watching this TV show first”, “It’s too hard”, “I can’t do it!’ etc – do these sound familiar?

Then we find we are 10 years further into our lives, only to find out that we are no way near where we imagined we would be 10 years beforehand.  We suffer from the heaviness of regret and disappointment in ourselves and we resolve to do better – only to find that “I’ll do it later”, “It’s too hard” etc pops up again and again causing us more grief and a sense of loss of time in which we could have written that book, or advanced in our careers, started that new business venture.

What happens is that your subconscious – which is essentially programmed to keep you where everything is familiar, safe and secure – and so it does what it can to keep you in this comfort zone where you don’t have to face your fears, or life changes.

In my blog “Life’s Outcomes are Determined by Your Responses”  where I talked about how your responses to the events in your life determine your life outcomes – essentially this is derived from the Universal Law of Progress:

Thoughts -> Feelings -> Behaviour (or Responses) = Outcomes

For Example: your spouse is late home for dinner.  You THINK “They care more about their work than they do about me or the kids!” which leads to the FEELING of resentment and anger towards your spouse, so when your spouse turns up at home and walks in, you RESPOND by telling them how inconsiderate and thoughtless they are which progresses to an OUTCOME of an argument – leaving you both feeling hurt and uncertain of the relationship.

This happens millions of times throughout the day, depending on how you perceive your personal situation.  If you continuously have a negative perspective (or THOUGHTS)of your life – guess what? You’ll continue to attract negative OUTCOMES!  So the quickest way to change the outcomes in your life is to change your perspective!  A Life Coach can help you with this.

So what has this got to do with Procrastination? Well, if you’re continuously being fed messages from your subconscious of “It’s too hard”, “I’m too tired” etc you’ll then FEEL that the task at hand really is too hard to do or your body FEELS too tired to do it…….so naturally your RESPONSE or BEHAVIOUR would be to avoid the task, which repeated over several occasions ends up in PROCRASTINATION.

But the good news is that I have an easy step by step process which is easy to follow – afterall I’m a reformed procrastinator, but with my qualifications in Life Coaching, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming – I have not only studied and mastered these steps, but have also coached many clients to gain an inner understanding of procrastination that enables them to recognise the symptoms and take action before procrastination takes hold.

  1. Good article. I am going through many of these issues as well..

    • I’m delighted that you have gained value from my blog – many people are out there suffering with these issues and find it hard to get answers, let alone understand why things are the way that they are below the surface. I like to know why things become issues in the first place and so through a great deal of life experience and coaching clients, I’ve come to know what works and what doesn’t – so I only blog about what I KNOW works.
      I feel that if people come to understand why things are the way they are in the first place before they become issues, then a great deal of suffering can be avoided in the future.

      Thanks again, Sue

  2. Very nice post. I definitely love this website.
    Continue the good work!

  3. Wonderful post! We will be linking to this particularly great article on our website.
    Keep up the good writing.

    • Your comments is the main motivation as to why I write as I do – all from experience – and I’m sooo delighted that other wonderful people are gaining from my experience and knowledge – please keep coming back to my website.

      Much Love

  4. This excellent website certainly has all the information and facts
    I needed about this subject and didn’t know who to ask.

    • Thank you so much Jeremiah – I’ve spent 20 years and over $100,000 on my educating myself on what works and what doesn’t work! So I ONLY ever write about what I know works!! I really appreciate your feedback as it encourages me to write more to help people like you – as sometimes I don’t get comments and I’m not sure if I have helped anyone. Yes, I too am human and have my own “stuff” to deal with – but when website guests leave comments I know I am making a difference to someone’s life – and that’s what’s most important to me!

      Warmest Regards

      Sue

  5. Looking forward to beating procrastination
