John 6:35

Psalm 30:5

For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.

Isaiah 40:4-5

The Sovereign LORD has given me a well-instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed. The Sovereign LORD has opened my ears; I have not been rebellious, I have not turned away.

Procrastination and avoidance go hand in hand. Oftentimes, the root of procrastination can be found in cognitive dissonance. The term cognitive dissonance is used to describe the mental discomfort that results from holding two conflicting beliefs, values, or attitudes. In other words, the pressure that belongs in the entrepreneur can be overwhelming to the extent that avoidance seems like the only relief. Scientifically, procrastination is inevitable. Therefore, all we can do is plan to procrastinate appropriately. In other words, make sure you have a "back up plan" for the "back up plan".

When inspiration hits you, you go after it. Whether it's day, night, mid-morning, in the middle of the meeting - strike while the iron is hot. Many successful entrepreneurs will work whenever inspiration strikes as they know they will be more productive then than later. It may be beneficial to carve out 90 minutes of your free time to reply to emails and make important calls. This is how successful entrepreneurs stay ahead and win.

4. Keep Their Full Work/Life Schedules In One Place

Alexandra Weiss, a partner at CA Creative in New York says:

“It’s crucial to make sure you record all your meetings and appointments in one place instead of having them scattered throughout different calendars, notebooks, and apps.”

This is the time to use iCloud to your benefit, and not to your detriment. Carve out 30 minutes or more to combine all of your schedules to lessen your chance of overbooking or overlooking.

5. When They Are Done, They Relax

Worrying about work when you're not in "work mode" can be mentally debilitating. Before you finish your work day, write down your goals for the next day. Additionally, write down how you will achieve them too as this will help you to feel focused, so you can switch off and enjoy your down time.
