Procrastinator Persona Type 2: Day Dreamer
Congratulations on taking the My Procrastinator Persona Quiz and identifying your Procrastinator Persona.
Knowing your persona as a “Day Dreamer” is the first step to breaking through procrastination.
You are now on the road to greater confidence, achievement, and success.
As a Day Dreamer, you have unique challenges to overcome procrastination and unique solutions to those challenges:
- You’ve been struggling to stay focussed on the end goal because something always distracts you and takes your attention away.
- You’re not afraid of hard work, as long as someone else is doing it. When it comes to putting in effort, you’d prefer to delegate than roll up your sleeves.
- Like most people, your first question is “What’s in it for me?” Being remunerated at some level for your work is of prime consideration before you begin. You need to know whether something is worth your effort, otherwise you won’t do it.
- Commitment. That’s a big word you’ve been trying to avoid for a while. It means you have to take action, but commitment is hard when you’re more of a people pleaser than a doer.
Day Dreamer Solution:
You need a tailored plan to help you refocus and get you on your way.
Because you respond much better to carrot than stick, this plan will involve rewarding yourself at each stage along your journey.
Success also rewards action, so your task is to create a tailored plan that will identify your highest value activities and motivate you to keep taking the required action to manifest your dreams.
Focusing on your rewards will help you to stop procrastinating and make it easier for you to commit to the necessary steps you need to take.
Small rewards equal big results.
Break Through Plan—Step 1
Identify the 1 thing that is the biggest cause of procrastination
Think of this ‘1 thing’ as your personal red flag. With this in mind, your first step is to keep a record (e.g. a procrastination journal) of how many times this red flag comes to your attention in the next 24 hours (e.g. excuses, avoidance behaviour, distractions).
