Procrastinate Your Way To A Successful Small Business

What will your business look like a year from today?

If you're like most small business owners, you have many things to do and not enough time to do them. Can't you just ignore them and procrastinate your way to success?

Not likely. True, sometimes avoiding issues will make them go away, but think about the energy you expend and the time you waste.

If you're like me, when there's an issue that needs taking care of, it will keep popping it's ugly little self into your brain. Deal with me now! Do this! Take care of this issue!

Perhaps you write the issue on your to do list to get it out of your head. Problem is, each time you look at your to do list you say, "Yep, I still have that item pending. I really need to do something about it."

Consider this. If you spend 5 minutes per day thinking about the same pending issue and take no action on it for a year, you will have wasted 30 hours. With time so precious to all of us, can you afford to waste 30 hours per year? And that's just one issue. What if you are procrastinating about several issues?

A year from now, what will you wish you had started today?
