We all know that there are tasks we postpone and delay.

Because we:

  • don’t like doing them
  •  Also don’t know where to start
  • don’t know how much time it will take
  • don’t know if we can do it at all
  • don’t have enough knowledge

This kind of delaying behavior is called; PROCRASTINATION


What will help you to stop procrastination?


Checking in with a buddy every day or every week is one good method to protect yourself from procrastination.

This method I’ve used myself for many years.

Have a weekly call with a buddy who keeps me accountable. Who cuts through the crap I tell myself of why I have not been able to do the things I’ve promised.

Because excuses are always very real to use. And there is a reason why it is called an excuse. Because that is exactly what it is.

When the task somehow seems to be bigger than you believe yourself to be, we come up with reasons why we could not do it.

And all these reasons are very true to us. Someone else will see all your reasons in a different perspective and will call it excuses. And it is good when you can see that too.

In this way, your barriers to taking the actions you promised to take will be smaller or they will be gone.

Becoming a member of a mastermind group is also a good method


A mastermind group is also a very good method to keep you accountable. And better even than a buddy, you will gain a lot of extra knowledge and insights, from the other participants and also from the moderator.

There are many ways how mastermind groups can function.

My favorite one is that a topic will be taught. And after that, you all start to work on that topic and you discuss with one another what your actions will be. This way everybody benefits from the knowledge and insights all participants bring to the table.

I always call this cross-pollination.

The knowledge of a group is always way bigger than the knowledge of an individual or of two buddies.

The benefits of a mastermind are:

  • Learn from the collective group knowledge,
  • Have more accountability partners
  • Getting a boost every time you join
  • Learn from and get coached by the moderator
