Procrastination Has No Place In Business

Procrastination has no place in business! It affects us all from time to time. Procrastination isn’t a terribly bad thing depending on what you’re putting off, but if you operate a business, it is something you must avoid as often as possible. If you’re not careful, procrastination will leave your business stuck in neutral. So why is procrastination bad for business?

Here are five (5) main reasons:

Prevents you from achieving your goals

It is simply putting off doing what you need to do today for tomorrow. The sad thing with most business owners/entrepreneurs is that tomorrow never comes. Procrastination is the enemy of progress and the friend of complacency. It will leave you with no drive, motivation or excitement in challenging yourself to move forward in achieving your goals. When you procrastinate, you put your vision, desires, and goals on hold. You put things off under the illusion that you will get to them another day or when you have more time. You make layers of excuses. You constantly postpone taking action.

Affects Your Health

A recent study indicates and shows that chronic procrastination may make people more vulnerable to serious health conditions like cardiovascular disease and hypertension. Evidence suggests that putting off important tasks causes stress, and this additional stress contributes to negative psychophysiological impacts on the body which increase our vulnerability to illness. Previous research has linked chronic procrastination to a range of stress-related health problems such as headaches, digestive issues, colds and cases of flu, and insomnia. 

Ruins Customer Relationships

Procrastination can also ruin the relationships you have with your customers. It could start small and blow up to something hugely negative. First, it’s failing to respond to their inquiries in a timely manner. Then it’s not getting their orders out on time. No matter what form it takes, procrastination is a relationship killer for the simple that it betrays the trust that existed between you and the customer. Once that happens, your entire image could take a hit.

Damages Your Reputation

If your business becomes known for procrastination or not delivering, your reputation is bound to take a hit. Reputation management is crucial in times when everything about you can easily find its way to a discussion forum, blog, or social network. Don’t think your customers won’t use these channels to speak negatively about you. They will in a heartbeat. And the more you procrastinate with servicing them, the more likely they are to do so.

Missed Opportunities

Opportunity knocks, but sometimes, it only knocks once. If you’re not ready to answer the door and seize the moment, you just might miss out. Imagine your company looking at another prosperous business to either merge or buy them out. These things definitely take time, but if you wait too long, a competitor might jump on the deal and snatch them right from underneath you. Business leaders must understand the importance of moving quickly while in the process of evaluating their options.
In conclusion: Procrastination is a disease. Don’t let it stop you in 2018. Stop procrastinating today!
You can do this. Don’t let anyone tell you different.
It’s easy to fall back into old habits. Don’t let this happen to you. Achieve your dreams in 2018. It’s time!
