The greatest single cause of procrastination in the world today is perfectionism.
Despite the desire for everything to be awesome, what perfectionism creates most often is a stack of unfinished, “someday-maybe” dreams and ideals.
Perfection-based procrastination can be a tough challenge to overcome, so here are a few tips to help you.
Write down exactly what you want to do.
Whether you’re planning a dream vacation or birthing a new project, write down the vision in bold, clear terms.
Post your written vision somewhere you can see it.
Tape it up on your bathroom mirror, post it on the refrigerator or set it next to your computer. Look at your statement every day.
Take simple steps toward your dream daily.
Every morning, write out 3 simple things you can do to step toward your dreams. Maybe there’s a phone call you need to make, or an email you need to send. Maybe you need to renew your passport, or supplies you need to buy. Do at least one of these tasks EVERY DAY.

If you get started right now, by the time things are “just right” you’ll be well on your way and those new resources will be a lot more useful.
