Did you know there is a secret art to the ninjas?  Well, there is also a secret art to dealing with procrastination.  If you take these tips and CHOP at little at a time, you will defeat procrastination and move closer to your goals of success.

C –Change your attitude.  Pretend the not-want-to-do-it attitude is a monster.  He wants to defeat you and is standing in front of you.  Imagine using your mental ninja skills and ending him.  You will feel better because you won and he will not mess with you again.  Ninja chop him in your mind and you will defeat his cunning ways.

H – Honesty about yourself.  Another mental trick is to be aware of your thoughts.  You have to realize that you are putting things off.  If you do them today, you don’t have to worry about them tomorrow. Be honest, tomorrow is just like today. If something comes to your mind, do it.  Ninja’s take care of any obstacle in their path.  You can take care of procrastination once you are honest about it being the enemy of success.  Ninja chop the idea that you can do it tomorrow and get it done today.

O – Orient towards action.  This means ‘line yourself up’ to take action.  Ninja’s know all about their surroundings, they won’t let the facebook or cell phone get in the way of their goal.  Could you imagine a ninja on a mission of great importance stopping to update his facebook?  It is unheard of.  Be a ninja and chop out the distractions that keep you from moving forward.

P – Positively talk to yourself.  I am not talking about answering yourself, but the words you use in your head tell a lot about what you will accomplish.  If you, think you can do it, you are more likely to do it.  Every true ninja tells themselves in their head they can do it, then they take action.

I am not sure if you will be a ninja or not, but you can be a success if you keep moving towards your dreams and goals. The only way to truly fail is to quit, so get out there and make something happen.

    I gave up my ninja ways when I was defeated by that red head and forced to bake cookies for Dan. On a more serious/productive note: This is a good tool. You should put it on labelizing for “I am lazy”

    I will look at labelinzing and see if it fits. Thanks for the advice. Now, you need to reclaim your Ninja rights!
