Overcoming Procrastination is the Key to Massage Success

Everyone procrastinates. Even the most successful people struggle with it every day. But successful people do something that most of us don't--they push past it. They don’t make excuses or allow it to affect their output. They come up with smart, actionable strategies to break past mental barriers and stay productive.


In a recently published article entitled, “How to Overcome Procrastination for Massage Success,” author and expert, Cary Bayer, writes:


“Massage therapists who procrastinate often pay a big price in their businesses and health: lost income, insomnia and anxiety are just a few of the negative effects of putting things off.

This insidious habit of delay usually continues for as long as the payoff for delaying exceeds the high price it creates,” adding that procrastination can be explained in part by Isaac Newton’s Law of Inertia: An object at rest remains at rest, or if in motion, remains in motion unless acted on by an external force.


“While this applies to physical systems, it applies analogously to human systems: namely to you.If you’re busy accomplishing things such as marketing your massage business, you’ll continue growing your business,” he writes.


If you have habits of delay, however, and no outside force acts upon you, you’ll remain at rest. The day you market and communicate will always be tomorrow. “But when you find a way to introduce something into the system (your system being your consciousness, speech and behavior) your body at rest moves into motion. Inspiration is one outside element, as are motivation and play.”


Procrastination can be beat, it just takes some self-awareness and effort. Applying even just a few of any of the above methods can put you on the path to being a much more productive individual.
