Procrastination is the bane of a great many entrepreneurs. It’s just too easy to put things off until the last minute. However, rather than beating yourself up for it, why not consider the upsides of procrastination? Procrastinating on purpose is less about laziness and disengagement and more about giving yourself more time to think things through!
For example, if you have a major project to work on with a deadline on Friday, you would be tempted to get to work in earnest immediately and power through the whole thing by Wednesday. But doing this means missing out on two days of potential inspiration! You might come up with a better solution to a problem or a more innovative idea on Friday morning, but by then it will be too late. It’s important to give yourself time to allow inspiration to strike.
Another time when procrastination can pay off is when you’re preparing a presentation. This will allow you to fit in more current references, allowing your presentation to seem much more fresh and exciting than it would otherwise. Also, by putting off the preparation, all of your talking points will be at the front of your mind when you walk into the conference room, especially if you’ve had a good night’s sleep!
