You know procrastinate doing you know going to the, do things or go to the beach, or go to have fun or watch TV and lay on the couch and eat.
Procrastination is a symptom of a lack of motivation, how do you get over it? It’s really simple; you don’t have a big enough why. Why is it you want to do something? What is so compelling? That absolutely no matter what would get you at a better four o’clock in the morning on a Sunday morning to make sure it gets done. It’s about the why, what’s your purpose? What’s your why? Okay! Yeah! Sometimes you know filling out a tax form, you know I procrastinate that. I don’t want to do it, but here’s the thing.

Something I want to go towards, getting it done, making money, making sure I get what I want or away from I don’t want to get a fine, I don’t want to get in trouble.
