Have you ever had this experience? You take a personality test (maybe because a friend bugged you until you caved — that’s what happened with me and StrengthsFinder recently).
You get to the end of the quiz and wait with bated breath for the results to drop into your inbox. As your eyes skim over the page, you feel unexpectedly emotional. Looking at your hyper-personalized results, you feel seen, understood, relieved.
You suddenly get that all of your odd quirks, idiosyncrasies, and perceived flaws might actually not only make sense, but might serve you well in your life, if you work with them.
So, how does this connect to procrastination? You’ve heard me say it a million times by now: If you procrastinate, it’s not because you’re lazy or because you lack willpower. You just don’t understand your brain fully yet. You’re working against your brain; not with it.
You don’t understand what’s really driving you to procrastinate, so you can’t solve the problem.
What if I could help you understand? Allow me to present a little quid pro quo arrangement 🙂
I’m working on a procrastination archetype framework. I’m in the final stages of refining my theories 🤓 and I am looking to connect with individuals who are interested in test-driving the framework and giving me feedback.
Here’s what’s in it for you:
- Get free, live procrastination coaching from me in an intimate setting.
- Understand yourself and your procrastination on a whole new level.
- Be the first to get a sneak peek at the final procrastination archetypes framework.
- Karma points, since you’re helping me help others. (Imagine the positive ripple effects!)
- Free access to the Productivity Power Zone mini course, as my way of saying thank you to you.
I invite you to sign up if you:
- Identify as mid-career corporate professionals or entrepreneurs
- Procrastinate in any of the following ways: Procrasti-learning, procrasti-cleaning, hemming and hawing over decisions, saying “I don’t know,” avoiding tasks with [insert your preferred procrastination method].
- Know that your life would look different if you solved the issue of procrastination.
- Are willing to talk openly, give feedback, and engage on this topic with 4 other strangers, plus me.
