2. Procrastination is the biggest enemy of business success.
The best method of overcoming procrastination is to avoid Over-Planning and Under-Action. Set your goals, write your goals down on paper and put them away somewhere. Contrary to popular teaching, do not waste valuable time with reviewing your goals. Plant the seed of your goals and do not dig them up daily to see if they are growing. Write your goals down on paper and put them away somewhere, never to look at them again. When you goals come to mind, simply say to yourself, to the universe, or God, “Thank you! My goals are on their way as I take daily action towards their attainment.”.
Here is a video of Earl Shoaff that explains the principle of Planting the Seeds of Your Goals.
