Start Procrastinating!

“Procrastination is the bad habit of putting off until the day after tomorrow what should have been done the day before yesterday.” ~Napoleon Hill~ You read it right. I said, “Start” procrastinating. Why? Because I’ve noticed that some of my most productive friends and colleagues are true procrastinators.  They fall into a type of procrastinators that I call “The Do-ers”.

Give Up Trying To Fit In.

If you haven’t noticed yet, there is only one you. As much as you’d like to think that you’re just like everyone else, you’re not. The hard part is staying you. What I mean is people will try to talk you out of being you. Most people want you to be “normal” or to “fit in”, but that just means giving up your personal freedom and conforming or becoming invisible. Seth Godin, bestselling author and world-class marketing expert says,”Fitting in is a short term strategy. Standing out pays off in the long run.” Give up trying to fit in. This is...
