If everything feels too complicated and overwhelming, action will be inhibited.
Procrastination is the great inhibitor
Are you bogged down with too much to do that you feel you are getting nowhere?
Too many people search for that magic time management tip that will suddenly take them from their current situation to their dreams.
A question I am often asked by people who are not making any progress with their business or their life relates to how they can move from their current situation to where they want to go. They feel that they are stuck in a rut.
“If you have too many action inhibitors, expect your progress in any direction to be slow”. Peter Sergeant
What is stopping your progress?
Nothing will stop progress or hold back innovation and change more than these statements:
- “I don’t have the time or the money”.
- “It’s too complicated for me”.
- “I don’t have enough experience”.
- “I don’t understand technology”.
- “We already do that”.
- “Everything is working okay now”.
- “Social Media is just another fad”.
- “Been there and done that”.
- “I don’t feel well enough”.
- “I don’t understand Big Data or IoT”.
- “I can’t find anyone to help me”
It has always amazed me how many great ideas and opportunities emerged from people’s struggles that they had created.

I have never met anyone who wants to make mistakes or fail. But if you try too hard to avoid failure, you’ll also avoid success. Become comfortable with ambiguity and confusion because that is not where others go for ideas and opportunities, even though that is where the mistakes are.
To increase your success rate, aim to make more mistakes, go to places where others fear to tread. In other words, take more chances and you’ll succeed more often. Those few really great ideas you come up with will more than compensate for all the dumb mistakes you make.
So, today why not look at how many mistakes you can generate on your way to succeeding.
