I am currently reading the “The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons” by Napoleon Hill and lesson five is talking about Initiative and Leadership. This lesson is very interesting and shows you how you can avoid procrastination with initiative and leadership.
If you have a job in a company and want to get a better position, you’d better start to take some initiative and go the extra mile without monetary compensation to learn what you need to know to work in the position you want to get. If you prepare yourself for the future position, it is likely you’ll get it when it becomes available.
If you are an entrepreneur, this is the same. Prepare yourself and learn what you need to know to achieve the goals you have set for your business. This can’t be achieve with procrastination.
“You Can Do It if You Believe You Can!”
This is an extract of what the book says:
I know that procrastination is a deadly enemy of all who would become leaders in any undertaking, and I will eliminate this habit from my make-up by:
(a) Doing some one definite thing each day, that ought to be done, without anyone telling me to do it.
(b) Looking around until I find at least one thing that I can do each day, that I have not been in the habit of doing, and that will be of value to others, without expectation of pay.
(c) Telling at least one other person, each day, of the value of practicing this habit of doing something that ought to be done without being told to do it.
