Welcome to episode 9 of Ask Mark, where I answer your questions about personal development to help you become the best version of yourself.

For over a year of interviewing my guests on the What I Know Now podcast, I want to share with you what I have learned from them by answering any questions to may have about personal development, networking and building meaningful relationships. The aim of Ask Mark is to help you achieve your goals sooner, so you stand on the shoulders of giants.

I love hearing from my listeners. If you would like to get involved and have your question feature on the show, please give me a shout by leaving your question in the comments box or drop me a message on social media in the links below.

Now sit back, plug in those headphones and enjoy because it is time to learn together about personal development, networking, building meaningful relationships and so much more.

 

 

In this episode, I answer a listener’s question on how to overcome procrastination. Everyone procrastinates about one thing or another, but it is important not to delay the important stuff.

The first piece of advice I have learned to stop procrastinating is that you need to change your mindset. Stop thinking that it is something you have to do, but rather choose that you want to do it.

The second tip I would offer is to block it out. Schedule a day, a week or an hour every day to work on the important projects and stick to the plan.

The final piece of advice is to put a deadline on it. Break it down into miniature small deadlines and break the project into sub-tasks. This way you can work on it over time instead of leaving everything to the last minute.

As mentioned in the epsiode, you can check out Tim Urban’s TED talk “Inside the Mind of a Master Procrastinator” at this link.
