The Beat Procrastination Plan

Welcome to part three. What I want to do now is I want to cover the insider school beat procrastination planner. This is a 10 page planner that you use every week. To help you beat procrastination, get clear on what you want to get done, and apply a lot of the five habits that we covered in the last section. So let’s talk about exactly how to apply this. So every week you fill this out. And first thing that you do is you rewrite your goals at the beginning of the week, do it every day, but also the beginning of every week, because then when you look at your planner, you start with your goals. And then you say, okay, is what I’m doing is everything else. And I’m writing, moving me closer to this. So it’s just a reminder to make sure that everything that follows is in line with this. And then what you do from here, remember one of the habits that we talked about was tracking your progress. So here is one of the ways that you do that. You also want to track other things. And that’s why I’ve left space for you to track whatever you want, but to the things that I want you to track our execution completion. So every week, you write what did I execute on this week? And also, how many hours did I work? And then you can add other things as well. But these are pretty objective measures of Okay, what did I get done? As far as hours worked? I don’t mean, I showed up to the office at night and left at five and therefore that’s eight hours? No, not at all. What I mean is, how many hours uninterrupted hours, did you work measured on your electronic Timer? Like how many 16 minute blocks Did you get done on there? That’s what I mean by that. Okay. So this is the first page, this is kind of an overview for the three month goals that you’ve set in the three month execution on those goals. And then every week, what you do is you write down remember, one of the habits we talked about was the daily and the weekly list. So every week you write down up to six things that you want to get done that week. So the idea here is, if you only got six things done, what would those six things be? What would they need to be in order for them to have made a difference in your life that week, in order for them to move you measurably closer to goals? Write up to six things here. And then at the bottom. So at the end of the week, you also tally up your scores is where you get your weekly score that goes up on this page before, how many things did you want to get done? And how many things did you get done, and then you divide this one by this one, and that gives you a percentage, that is your execution score. Execution completion goes right over there. And then every week you also remember we talked about timeboxing? as one of the habits, see time box, your calendar, what is the week going to look like? When are you going to get all of these things in the weekly initiatives done, when you’re going to do them all? You do that here, you write just brackets and you write whatever it is you want to get done. And then what you do is this is the daily list. So every day, you write just the six things that you want to do up to six things you want to do that day, the less the better, really. And every day you measure two things, you just ask yourself, just quickly check in, and it’s okay. If the answer isn’t good to these, you want to give yourself a score one to 10am I measurably closer to my goals today, and hours work, and it’s okay if the answer is a two. If you see this many days in a row, you’re like, Okay, you know what, I got all my tasks done, but am I measurably closer? No. So this is a powerful reminder. And this is a objective reminder as well, like, okay, I was in the office for eight hours. But how many hours did I work with no phone, no interruptions just work. Okay, you just do this for every day of the week. And then again, end of the week, you score your week, and it goes here. So you could print out a new first page as well. Or you could just print one of the first page for a 12 week period, because you’ve 12 weeks, and then just print a new one of pages two to 10 every single week. And then every Sunday before you start your week is when you would fill out the weekly initiatives and your time box calendar. So I hope this helps, I wanted to give you a resource that you can use to help you beat procrastination. And the reason this works so well. First of all, we’re taking advantage of the five habits that we talked about in part two of the course. But also because we’re combating the five causes of procrastination as well remember, we talked about those thoughts that get in the way of procrastination? Well, we’re beating them. When we’re valuing the rewards. We’re getting in touch with our goals, then we’re making sure that what we’re doing is in touch with the initiatives, lines up with those goals. And when Are we doing we are getting over overwhelm and confusion because we’re listing things out exactly what we want to get done, and, and so forth. So there’s a really, really powerful resource. This is a simpler version of the full insider planner that I give insider school members but I wanted to share this with you as well make it as simple as possible for you so you have something that you could print, use and get results with immediately. So I hope this helps
