Why do we procrastinate? How do we stop procrastination? In this video Russell tackles both questions as he describes why entrepreneurs procrastinate and what they can do to stop, and eventually achieve their ultimate vision. According to Russell, Dan Sullivan taught him that entrepreneurs procrastinate because they get stuck in pursuing how to do something. How to code, how to use photoshop, how to do this, or how to do that. We flood ourselves with trying to figure out how to do something, and as a result we get stuck and procrastinate trying to accomplish our end-goal. For Russell, to overcome procrastination we need to stop trying to figure out the how and focus on the who that can help us achieve our vision. Who do we have in our rolodex who can code, who can use photoshop, who can help me get to my vision? This is the key to stop procrastinating. Luckily, Click Funnels has developed Funnel Rolodex which will give you a plethora of people who will help you achieve your vision. Surrounding yourself will people will get you to your vision will help you achieve your vision quicker and stop procrastinating. At Funnel Hacker TV, we are here to help you with your business.

Why entrepreneurs procrastinate
– My name is Russell Brunson and the second question today to go over is procrastination. How many of you guys are procrastinating too long and you know that? So if you have a problem and you’re busy watching Youtube videos, how do you beat procrastination? So I’m actually gonna doodle this one out. So this right here, this is your computer. And on your computer there’s tons of stuff happening right? You’ve got your, in fact, I’m gonna make a little laptop. You see my mad drawing skills. I’m actually really bad at doodling. There you go. There’s your laptop and you’re typing away and there’s all these things happening right? There’s Youtube and there’s Instagram and there’s Facebook. In fact most of you guys are watching this on one of these platforms right now, I guarantee, and so you’re probably in this procrastination mode where you’re not focusing on just getting stuff done. And so for me, what I have to do is a lot of it comes back to how you structure your day and how you figure some of those things out. But if you wanna stop procrastinating there’s a couple things. One of the reasons why entrepreneurs procrastinate, I learned this from Dan Sullivan, he talked about, I’m gonna move my books over here, so he talked about most of us entrepreneurs right, we have this vision of this thing we wanna accomplish. So here’s your vision and you’re like I wanna do that. I wanna serve these people. I wanna create this product, or I wanna make money doing, you have this vision where you’re trying to go. And here is you over here and you see this vision and you’re like this is how, what I have to go.
What Dan Sullivan talked about procrastination
And so you start on this path and you start walking towards this vision and something happens where you get stuck right? Where you’re trying to learn something new that you don’t understand and you’re like ah and you get stuck, and then what happens? I don’t know about you but I’ve written now a couple books and I get this all the time when I’m writing my books where I’m writing and there’s pain associated and my brain’s like I need to do anything except for the painful thing that’s over here, so you start trying to figure out other things to do. And what happens is you start shifting to this mode of procrastination. And usually this detour happens and you’re trying to figure out how do I do something, right? You’re like how do I do this thing? You start researching then you’re listening to podcasts and you’re reading a book and another thing, another thing, then you’re going to search on Youtube, then you listen to a video that shows you how to but then you see all the cute girls in the video. There, you should watch those, then you’re off on this tangent and then you’re, and next thing you know it’s like three days later right? How many has it happened for more than once? And so what Dan Sullivan talked about, he said look, if you want to get to your vision you can’t keep procrastinating. That’s what this says right here, procrastinating. Because the reason, the thing that causes procrastination is how, like how do I do this thing? He said what you have to start shifting your focus to is instead of how do I do it is this question of who. Who already knows how to do the thing that I’m trying to get done, right?
My partner Todd Dickerson is the dude who built clickfunnels
If you’re not careful you get in this procrastination mode
The Justice League calls their people in. The Avenger group gets, they get the hulk and they get Thor. They get all the people and they get all the whos around to help them to dominate this vision. So for you as the entrepreneur, if you’re not careful you get in this procrastination mode where instead of saying who are the people I need to build this vision, then, it gets you off this procrastination where it gets you moving towards your vision. And some of you guys are sitting back saying well Russell, I don’t have any money to hire a Todd or hire the people I need to get my vision so I have to learn it ’cause I don’t have any money, I’m broke, right? Well I got good news for you. Guess how much money I pay Todd to build click funnels. At first zero. Now he gets paid a lot of money. But what happened? We partnered on it. He saw the vision. He’s like oh that vision’s awesome. I want in. I said cool, let’s get together, let’s do this thing and we both got together, we both put our skin, our time, our effort into it, and then we build the thing right? And then I don’t know how to buy ads so then John on my team, I’m like John, here’s the vision. John’s like I’m in, boom. We start buying ads and then we start bringing all our Avenger team together to go and conquer this vision. So for you you just gotta figure out what’s your vision, who are the whos you need to execute on that vision, and then bring them together. And all of these are superpowers partnered together and then go and create the vision.
A really cool service coming out called funnel rolodex
That way you won’t get stuck in procrastinating which is where most people get stuck. And I always tell people, entrepreneurs usually don’t, it’s not that they don’t have the vision. The problem is they either run out of time or money before they ever get to the vision. It’s because of this. They’re trying to figure out hows, the hows on every single step of the path. And when you do that you never actually get to the end goal. So take your computer, turn off Youtube, turn off all these things that aren’t helping you, and start focusing on who. Who are the whos I need to dominate this? Now depending when you’re watching this video I have a really cool service coming out called funnel roladex that’s full of a whole bunch of whos to help you get to your vision. And so it’s either there right now or it’s gonna be there very very soon but funnel roladex is a tool for you guys to help get your visions created as an entrepreneur, to launch your business so you can make money and change the world.
