3. Overplanning – The Procrastination Tool
Planning is a stress-buster as it lets us get ahead before we get overwhelmed. However, the downside is it’s often used to avoid taking action. We develop a super detailed plan instead of acting on it because we like to use planning as a procrastination tool.
It’s vital to be organized and also ensure that you’re taking action. Otherwise, we’ll end up wasting our time on writing a big, fat plan when we could have accomplished something on our to-do list.
4. Lack of Commitment – Shiny Object Syndrome
We all have experience starting something only to give up halfway through due to a lack of desired results. For instance, you started a blog, but no one read it. So you created a new blog in a different niche. If you’d given your first blog more time, most likely, you would have seen readership rise.
Expecting instant and immediate gratification is a recipe for disappointment. Success happens when you commit to yourself and your ideas, even when it feels like nothing is happening.
5. Lack of Consistency
Spontaneity is the key to making your life fun, but consistency is vital for prosperity. If you lack routine in your work and behavior, you’ll find it tough to make progress.
Maybe you say you’re going to complete a task. Either you completely forget or end up avoiding it. If you don’t have consistency in your life, you’ll always feel like you are playing catch up.
