7 smart ways to increase performance and decrease procrastination:

As a business owner, you are constantly battling distraction + procrastination and trying to get stuff done. It can feel like you are drowning in projects, ideas, and to-do lists. These 7 smart strategies will help you increase your results quickly.

Have frameworks: High-value or high- $$$ work doesn't happen by magic. You need frameworks, rituals, or systems to allow you to flow into key daily activities. The less friction between you and deep work the more impact you will have daily with your goals.

Do less: You should have fewer projects on the go, or your projects should stack and overlap. You create more leverage with your time and when your projects are connected. You avoid procrastination and overwhelm when dialled into a few key projects. Less is always more.

Do one thing at a time: A simple focus rule; when you're doing something, focus completely on it. As the Zen proverb says: "When walking, walk. When eating, eat." Multitasking does not exist. But overwhelm and a lack of results from doing it does. Remember: 1 until done.

Do things slowly + deliberately: It can be tempting to rush; you want results. But results come from keeping things simple and taking your time. Make your actions deliberate, not rushed or random. The Navy Seals have it right when they say: "Slow is smooth, smooth is fast."

Create space between things to do nothing: Don't schedule things so close together; give yourself time to unwind. Go for a walk, meditate, do breathing exercises. Reflect on what you're doing and why; if you don't, you could burn yourself out. Even if it is just 5 minutes.

Execute quickly: The gap between your ideas and then doing them is far too long. You then leave a bunch of ideas open in your mind and you increase your tendency to procrastinate. The less you have on and the more things connect the easier it is to execute.

Know your best hours: This is extremely important on two fronts • Creating specific times for tasks means they get done regularly • Your brain works differently at certain times of the day Knowing your circadian rhythm and doing the right work at the right time is key.

If you want to increase performance and reduce procrastination use these 7 strategies: • Have frameworks • Do less • Do one thing at a time • Do things slowly • Create space • Execute quickly • Know your best hours Your business and life will thank you.
