The Only Way to Stop Procrastinating (Based on Research)



In this episode, we’re attacking procrastination head on – using science.

Just think about how many hours, or heck YEARS, you have wasted thinking about what you needed to do instead of doing it.

That ends today.

This episode is packed with a simple, research-backed method to understanding why you procrastinate (it’s not what you think) and what researchers claim is the best way of tackling it.

I predict this episode will be one of the most shared this year because procrastination kills more dreams than fear ever does.

Take a listen to this episode, and I will give you something priceless in return: more time.

Imagine having hours to move closer to your dreams, hours to spend with your family, hours to move your body or read that novel, or hell, hours to do whatever the hell you want because you deserve it.

In this episode, we cover everything from micro-procrastinating to avoiding the really important stuff. And as always, I am armed with research and simple takeaways that work.

Specifically, you’ll learn 4 critical takeaways to apply to your life immediately, along with a science-backed 3-step technique to break free from your procrastination habit.

Whether you are the captain of procrastination like I used to be, or you are just tired of wasting so much time scrolling on your phone, this toolkit is my zero-cost gift to you.

Nothing is more important than taking control of your time, so hit play and I’ll lead the way to ending that vicious cycle you feel stuck in.

Don’t procrastinate on listening to this episode.

You deserve to understand why you're resisting parts of your life so that starting today, you can level up and get more out of it.
