Accountability Activity - Procrastination



Accountability Activity - to get you refocused on what needs to happen now to plan, launch, manage, grow or leverage your profitable business.


Procrastination creeps its ugly head into everyone's business once in awhile. This is simply resistance, and the only way to get past resistance is to act in spite of it. Getting clear is the first step. 

First, list three tasks on which you've been procrastinating below. Next, prioritize them in order of which ones will get you the highest return on investment first. 

Next, realize that you may be procrastinating because you're anticipating that each task will take longer than it actually does. Therefore, next to each task below, allot how much time you'll actually need for each, then schedule it on your calendar. 

No more excuses--just get it done.
