What Is The Opposite Of Procrastination?

What would be your answer to this question, “What Is The Opposite Of Procrastination?”

Perhaps it is best to understand what exactly is procrastination. It is the process of delaying taking action on a project of any kind. This usually takes the form of not starting at the scheduled date or time.

When we wait till the last minute to act, we place unnecessary stress on ourselves. Why do we procrastinate? Is it a form of laziness? Maybe that is one component.

Procrastination stems from putting off making a decision. Hence, it can be said that DECISION is the opposite of procrastination.

Think and Grow Rich – Chapter VII, Decision

In Chapter VIII of Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill denotes DECISION as the MASTERY of PROCRASTINATION.

When we loose our ability or desire to make a timely decision, we are procrastination. Can you remember the most recent times you procrastinated over an action that was important?

Decision as taught by Mr. Hill is the 7th Step Towards Riches. Let us recap what the previous 6 are:

  1. Desire
  2. Faith
  3. Autosuggestion
  4. Specialized Knowledge
  5. Imagination
  6. Organized Planning
  7. Decision

I have linked the previous 6 to the lessons in this series. In my Bog Series on my Blog Area in Wealthy Affiliate, I wrote about each of these steps towards riches as laid out in the respective chapters in Think and Grow Rich.

This Blog was part of a book study on this book. Many members followed and contributed to these articles. It became like a Master Mind Group. The member comments there are worth reading as they provide you with the insights of other entrepreneurs. The picture below will lead you there.

There is a price to pay for procrastinating, I call that the Price of Indecision. It is important to be aware of this because it can negatively affect our progress to take our lives to the next level in a big way.

Think and Grow RichThe answer is quite simple. We can be given all the knowledge we need to become successful. However, we come with a great deal of bad habits accumulated over time. It is critical to change our habits so that we will do whatever is necessary in a timely manner in order to succeed.

In other words, one of the bad habits we must overcome is procrastination. When we read and follow the lessons in Think and Grow Rich, slowly and surely our bad habits will be replaced with ones conducive to succeed.
