Overcoming procrastinationWell, I was pretty thrilled when The Downtown Victoria Magazine chose to reprint my article in their special insert in Victoria’s Times Colonist on November 23.  I realize that we’re already in February, but I just recently got my hands on a hard copy of the publication so I had to share!  Yes, I know that the print is too tiny in the photo for you to be able to read the article, but you can read the original version at ProfitGuide.com – A 9-Point Plan for Overcoming Procrastination.

Big shout out to the DVBA!

As many of you who regularly read the blog know, I only just last year opened a new office on the west coast to better serve our Vancouver, Victoria and U.S. Pacific coast clients, so it’s very exciting to be embraced in this way by the Victoria business community.  So a big shout out and huge thank you to the Downtown Victoria Business Association for this wonderful warm welcome.

Take a skim through the article, and you’ll see that I offer up four reasons that lead to procrastination, and five way to overcome it.  But now it’s your turn.  What are your tried-and-proven approaches to conquer procrastination?  Please share them below.
