Kick Someday Syndrome To The Curb and Beat Procrastination

Do you suffer from someday syndrome? Find out how to beat procrastination, stop wasting time and start taking real action to get what you want from life.

Some days we can be so good at taking action and other times not as much. We put things off, procrastinate, and find our way to our favorite social networking site. The day goes by and we have nothing to show for it. Why do we allow our best intentions to go down the drain? We end up playing games with ourselves that allow us to think we are confused by what we truly want.

“Don’t wait. The time will never be just right. ~ Napoleon Hill”

We have such good intentions too. After a long day at work, you might say to yourself “today is the day I finally sit down and figure out how to start a blog for my new business.” So, you sit down at your computer, pull up WordPress and start to have a look around. You find yourself thinking that you are tired and hungry. So, you go get something to eat. You find yourself interrupted by your children. You find your way to your favorite social networking site. Before you know it the day is gone and there is nothing to show for it.

What is Real Action?

We like to think we are taking action, but thinking about something is not the same as actually doing something. We can create all day in our minds, but can anyone else see the results of all that you created?  Is there actually anything physical to show for it? By that I mean something that someone else can see. You can create a blog post, but did you actually publish it? If not, you are the only one that can see the result.

Action means taking steps toward a goal and that someone else can actually see what you have created. Can you point to the direct result of what you have created?

So, what keeps us from taking action and staying in someday syndrome? Excuses.

Busting Through Someday Syndrome Excuses and Procrastination

Excuses can come in many different forms. The biggest one is “I am just too busy right now.” Being too busy is convenient because it is a socially accepted excuse. Everyone says it and you hear that phrase almost every day. If you had truly made a decision and commitment you would be able to find the time to do what you had originally set out to do. You have heard it before…everyone gets the same number of hours in a day. It is up to you how you choose to use them.

Excuses are nothing more than an undefined fear wrapped in disguise.

You can say you won’t allow yourself anymore excuses, but in reality we just end up replacing one excuse for another. If you say, okay I will carve out time to work on my new business. so you sit down and what happens? You then find yourself with writers block. So, you stop and say you will work on it another time. See, it is just one excuse replaced by another.

I can’t afford it is another excuse. You will afford whatever you truly desire. You will find a way if you want to move forward and allow yourself to have your dream.

Perfectionism is the fear that we will make a mistake. The fear that we will be proven wrong.

We allow excuses to keep us from so many things. What excuses are keeping you stuck?

5 Steps You Can Take Today To Beat Someday Syndrome

  • Pick one thing that you can do toward a goal and fit it into your schedule today.
  • Force yourself to do it. No Excuses.
  • Do not allow yourself any way out. Get it done before midnight.
  • Do it anyway.  There is no plan B.
  • Repeat the same process tomorrow.

I would love it if you would share your thoughts in the comments below.

Congratulations on 10k subscribers, that is amazing!

I don’t procrastinate with my blog but I do procrastinate with plenty of other things that aren’t what I feel like doing! Lately I’ve found I have days where I am right on top of one subject, and that’s it – whether it’s my business, my husband’s business, or shopping and housecleaning. That’s what’s getting it all done in the week.

    Hi Julie,

    Thank you!

    Actually that is a great way to work; only focusing on one thing at a time. We have grown up being taught that multi-tasking is the way to go, but I am finding that focus and concentration on one thing at a time actually produces better results.

    It sounds like we both could stand to hire a housekeeper. That is where I tend to procrastinate the most.

Laura:
I am new to your site, but so glad I found it. I was praying two mornings ago and when I looked at my clock it said 4:44. I have see this in several different places along with 000 and 888. I never noticed before and for some reason it has come to my attention. I lost a very beloved pet eight months ago and I found it very hard. I though I was going crazy noticing something so simply. So I threw it in the computer and came up with your blog. Starting to make sense now. Thanks for the book and thanks in general.

thank you very much for what you do it is greatly apprciated, and what you said is totaly true people
in thes days simply ‘don’t have time’ it is these types of people that are in fact, missing out on what could be the greatest part (teaching) of there lives.
if one does not have time, then they will never have time to learn. They are not busey as it were, they are Lost, and that is a tragic thing.
