Course Description

In truth, efforts to procrastinate, make excuses, and just avoid certain aspects of your job or task just leads to taking longer to complete work you could do much quicker, leading to you getting less done than you could within a set amount of time. 

Additionally, it forces you to work harder, take more time away from other activities you would rather be doing, and can lead to doing poorer-quality work because you have to work faster to make up for the time you lost by procrastinating and making excuses.  And, to compound the problem you are working faster, so you will be more prone to making mistakes and not thinking clearly when doing important tasks.

Therefore, dealing with procrastination, self-doubt, and  distractions is key to overcoming excuses and getting the most high-quality work done in the least amount of time possible. 

In the coming lectures in this course, you will learn why procrastination is a major enemy to doing your best work and why it is in your best interest to overcome it.  

  • You will learn how self-doubt leads to slower work, which can negatively impact the quality of your work.  
  • You will learn how to handle both the distractions you can and cannot control so that they do not impact the quality or your work nor the time it takes you to complete them.  
  • You will learn why staying on or ahead of schedule is key to doing your best work.  
  • You will learn how to “make a game” out of getting things done promptly so you can work more efficiently.  
  • You will learn why focusing on the benefits and rewards you’ll get after completing a project is key to completing that project efficiently and doing your best work.  
  • You will learn why taking regular breaks during your project and taking care of your health and well-being are also key to doing your best work.  
  • I have designed this course to be straightforward with simple concepts that will, when practiced eliminate the need in your life to procrastinate.   
  • And, that, will in many ways protect and add to your good reputation, credibility and profitability.
