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.

How do you beat procrastination? Share some tips in the comments. Let’s beat it together!

  • This took me completely out of my comfort zone (low key had bubble guts filming), but I told myself that I was coming for everything I wanted in 2019, and the #mtyretreatcontest is on my list! 
I can remember several years ago when @myleik followed my personal page after I tagged #curlbox in a photo. I almost lost my mind! I’ve followed her journey and have always admired her hustle! 
For this contest, you needed to upload three 59 second videos of the following:

1. Tell me a bit about yourself 
2. What do you think everyone should do at least once in their lives? Why?

3. What are some things you’ve had to unlearn?

My word of 2019 is LEAP and I’m leaping right into the #mtyretreatcontest
