Finish Before Start Techniques: How To Overcome Procrastination, Doubts and Fears and Get Your Biggest Task Completed in Record Time

Is there a task or assignment that you would love to complete but not sure how to start or complete the task?

It could be that you want to start a new business.

It could be that you want to host your first live event but not sure if you’ll fail or not.

No matter what task or assignment you want to take on, you’re going to find value in today’s post, I’m going to share my technique with you.

I use a method I called ‘finish before you start technique’.

Let me give you a proven example.

Many years ago, I was to organize a live event but I kept  procrastinating the event. 

Actually, I procrastinated for many years, of course at that time I had many fears.

I was afraid people will NOT come.

I was afraid things will go wrong and I will lose money.

I was afraid people might want to come but not willing or able to pay my fees.

So many fears and this fears held me down for more many years.

One day I did what most people wouldn’t want to do, I confronted my fears using the ‘finish before you start technique’.

I went straight to go get an event center and paid for the hall.

When I got there, they asked me what day I was booking for, I just told them a date that I could voice out.

I told them the date,  paid for the event hall and left.

As I was going home, I heard many voices.

‘Johnson, you’re stupid’.

‘Johnson, you shouldn’t have done that, this is the craziest thing you have ever done’.

So many voices that made me feel like I made a mistake but I heard a very gentle voice…

‘Now, that you have paid,  you’ve got to start telling people’.

This was the salient voice I needed to hear.

So, I immediately ran and got my team together.

We started our marketing the same day because one thing was certain.

I paid for a facility and they’ll not refund me, I didn’t want to lose my money.

I had no option than to fight and fight and fight really hard.

That event is still one of my most successful events to date, I talk about it every time.

I have used the ‘finish before you start a new business' on virtually everything I need to do and it works every single time.

The beauty of this strategy is that it helps you take the first BOLD step and once you take that first step, the entire universe conspires to help you complete other steps.

If you’re really passionate about the goal you want to accomplish, you need to take the first BOLD step and once you do, you’d be shocked to see how simple it is to complete other steps.

Most times in life, you don’t need to get very clear to achieve all your goals, you just need to be clear about the first step.

I’m curious, what would you want to accomplish with this technique, tell me about it in the comment box and I will respond.
