Procrastination is your enemy.
It’s constantly tapping you on the shoulder, vying for your attention.
As a creative business owner, your success and happiness depends on your use of time.
Do you waste an hour after lunch looking at photos of your sorority sister’s baby? Do you spend your most creative, energized time of the day answering emails? Do you get sucked into home improvement shows when you should be working? Do you tell yourself that you’ll start writing that book you’ve been thinking about for years tomorrow, because you’re just too damn busy today?
We all fall into the procrastination trap every once in a while, but when we do, we’ve got to claw our way out as soon as possible. If we don’t, it can easily turn into a habit.
Sometimes, we procrastinate when we’re burnt out and in serious need of a break. That isn’t the time to push yourself to create.

Watch today’s video for the answer—and to get tips on how to deal with both procrastination and burn out.
