Procrastination – “the action of delaying or postponing something” Also known as a form of avoidance.

At one point in time, my name should have been Jazmine “Procrastination” Williams. I was the queen of procrastination. Test on Tuesday, cram on Monday. 10 page paper due on Friday, stay up until 1AM on Thursday. Project due on 11/2, start on 11/1. You see where I’m going with this.

Procrastination is how I dealt with things I didn’t want to confront. Things like…

👉🏾 Debt

👉🏾 Toxic relationships

👉🏾 Showing up on time

👉🏾 Saying no

👉🏾 Bad Credit

Procrastination makes a small problem a big problem.

Beating procrastination takes self discipline and commitment. It also takes focus.

Things I did/do to beat it:

✔️ Checklist

✔️ Calendar reminders

✔️ Changing my thoughts (mind over matter. The mind is a powerful tool that controls your level of procrastination)

✔️ Confronting problems (Huge for me) Ignoring them won’t make them go away

✔️ Accountability partners (sometimes you need help, and that’s okay)

I still deal with procrastination and I believe everyone does on some level, but using the tips I provided will help to change the behavior.

I pride myself in being authentic and transparent. I’m an introverted extrovert trying to figure out how to make friends as an adult. I’m a mother to 4, youngest of 4 and lover to 1.

I believe that nothing is birthed out of comfort, that includes dreams and babies. I’m an influencer and I hate gimmicks. One of my biggest fears is not fulfilling purpose before leaving this earth.
