I read a blog post recently that was written by Seth Godin titled "Set a Date". Anyone that reads his posts knows that Seth is typically a man of few words at least at one time. In this particular post he said:
Once you can do that on a regular basis, you will end procrastination forever (or at least until you get another swift kick in the butt).
That's it. It simple, but it not always easy (just like real estate investing).
We have all been guilty of procrastination from time to time, but doing this on a regular basis will cripple your real estate investing business.

Do you want to start doing direct mail? What's the date? Where are you getting your mail pieces? Decide and put it on a calendar.
You might be wondering what sent me down this whole path once again. It's really simple; it was an email I received a few days ago from someone asking if I would mentor her. The first sentence in her email was: "I've been thinking about getting ready to invest in real estate".

Deliver whatever it is you say you working on on the date you said you would, regardless of what external factors interfere. Deliver it even if you don think it perfect. You picked the date. And as a professional, the career making habit is this: once you set a date, never miss a date. Now those are words of wisdom.

I'm always putting myself "on the hook" for things I'm not getting done. I did that this week when I announced on Facebook that I would be getting up one hour earlier each day to kick "Woulda, Shoulda and Coulda" off my list where a project was concerned. My Roshe Run For Girls Pink
In this business of real estate investing, there are so many things we need to do on a daily basis that it's easy to put of projects and postpone the implementation of those big ideas we have in the back of our minds. Procrastination can become such a habit we no longer recognize it. Have you ever given any serious thought to just how this one bad habit is affecting your business and your bottom line? Most of the time, the majority of real estate investors are completely unaware of those costs. But I can tell you that your failure to act on things you know you should be doing is costing you plenty of money. You can put an end to this vicious money sucking cycle just by ending procrastination (which admittedly is easier said than done).
