By Shelley Mitchell
Being TOTALLY ADHD with a Capital H, I had a very roller coaster life and career of STARTING everything and finishing NOTHING…
Now, as an expert in helping entrepreneurs and business owners turn their Passion into successful, PROFITABLE businesses, I’m a certified Business Coach and ADHD Coach, and even built a 6 figure business in my first full year and multiple 6 figures businesses thereafter… oh, and published 2 books.
I’m still totally ADHD -and- even though I might seem a bit unorganized at times and ALL over the place, the TRUTH IS that I get MORE DONE in one day than most people do in a week!
Here’s are the 10 signs to see if you are a PROCRASTINATOR and the #1 thing I do personally to get so much done!
(straight from Procrastinators Anonymous) Compulsive procrastinators may not have all the signs listed here, but if you identify with many of these characteristics, you are probably a compulsive procrastinator.
1. We keep disappointing other people and ourselves by not keeping our promises.
2. Difficulty getting started on new projects or transitioning from one project to another.
3. Poor Sense of Time – USUALLY LATE – chronically underestimating or overestimating how long a task will take us to complete.
4. Difficulty organizing projects by breaking them down into steps; we don’t know where to start, even when we’re willing to start.
5. Surrounded by clutter and disorganization in our homes and work spaces.
6. We are regularly late for appointments.
7. We are acutely aware of what we should be doing, or think we should be doing, and oddly out of touch with what we actually want and need.
8. Trouble saying “NO” to requests from others, and instead express our resentment through the passive resistance of procrastination.
9. Demand Resistance, (do what?) We do anything and everything except the one thing we most need to do.
10. Short-term thinkers, focusing on short-term pleasure while ignoring long-term well-being. (if you don’t have a written daily plan or even a business/marketing strategy, you might be a PROCRASTINATOR)
OMG, after reading this list, that was/is SOOOOO ME!
But I have figured out the SECRET to tricking myself every single day.
While there are a lot of things that go into having a successful business, IMPLEMENTATION is the one biggest one you need to have.
Without, VISION, IMPACT, Marketing Strategies & Tactics and Systems in place, it could get a little messy but if you don’t take ACTION on what you need to do, it will NEVER happen.
The IMPLEMENTATION piece is where most people fall short.
So what is my SECRET WEAPON? Or the weapon against my procrastinating nature…?
The answer is: TIME BLOCKING!
Yes, Time Blocking! This is my very tight-leash I put on myself. Even my man knows to put the time we want to spend time together INTO my calendar.
If it’s NOT in my calendar, then it doesn’t happen, period….
WHY? Because I’m so tough on myself? Absolutely Not…
If I don’t put it in my calendar, I will FORGET everything, maybe even my name so time blocking keeps me on track with everything including:
• what I was doing,
• what I need to do,
• what’s next
• where I need to be,
• what time I need to leave,
• who I need to call and even simply,
• how to plan my life
TIME BLOCKING – simplified
Color Coding –
Some people may think putting EVERYTHING in your calendar can be visually overwhelming, so I make sure I COLOR CODE my activities.
Also, when cash flow seems to be “slow” or I something seems to be going the wrong direction, I can easily look at the overall picture and see “by the COLOR” where I was spending most of my time.
The answer to my problems usually shows itself very quickly in the colors.
Here are the colors I personally use but I suggest you use what makes sense to your brain-style and your life.
I add pop-up reminders and alarms for important things, so I don’t lose track of time and for the most part.
Also, everything is usually blocked out in 1-hour increments.
I also add “labels” in my appointments like “SS” for Strategy Session or “CC” for Current Client so if I need to do a “SEARCH”, all of my history can be pulled up at a moments notice.
Having the information on your history, your future, and your productivity is HUGE and will be the key thing to adding $$$$ to your bottom line.
You CAN be an IMPLEMENTER!
This all may or may not make complete sense to you, so I suggest you analyze how your brain works and create systems that work for you.
First, there is NO SYSTEM IN THE WORLD that works for EVERYONE!
Also, It takes 21 days of CONSISTENT use to form a habit so you can’t do it for a week and then say “it didn’t work.”
By the way, before my son left to college, we blocked out every Monday from 3:30 to 5 pm and it was HIS TIME. If he wanted me to go to the grocery store with him or just sit outside and talk, it didn’t matter. It was his time, and everything else was OUT of that moment.
He ultimately chose it to work on his topics for his TV show and brainstorm ideas for his business, school, etc. (which, of course, is my gift) but it didn’t matter. If he chose to bake cookies together, then that’s what we would do.
IMPLEMENT and BE IN THE MOMENT!
The bottom line is that you have to live life IN THE MOMENT you are in. You can’t be IN one moment, yet thinking about another. It’s not fair to YOU, your clients or the people you love. (I’ve theoretically known this but Sharon Wacks imprinted this in my head several years ago)
With that being said, your brain does NOT have the capacity to PARK all that information all at once, to draw from, at any given notice. So STOP trying to make it work that way and then beat yourself up for forgetting things and not getting things done.
If you find yourself NOT reaching your goals in your business and any of these things resonate with you, I’d like to offer you a GIFT of a “CATAPULT Your Cash Flow” Session with one of my Master IMPLEMENTATION Coach-sultants.

I still haven’t figured out how to AUTOMATE this piece yet! (and am waiting on COMCAST to come because my INTERNET, TV and PHONE all died Friday afternoon right in the middle of working with a client! Aghhhh!
Over 150 business owners and entrepreneurs have gone through my program in the last 18 months and 100% our graduates are Making MORE MONEY – GUARANTEED -! (click here to learn more)
You HAVE TO MEET THESE GUYS! Not only are they 2 amazing, genuine guys but they are Co-Founders of Visify LLC, and they DO the part that I AM MISSING! (I certainly know how to pick my friends:-) (JOIN ME TONIGHT!)
They are the KEY I’ve been looking for in my program for Module 4 – Systems & Organization – to bring to my clients since as “automation” has saved my life, but there is still a missing link I NEED IN MY BUSINESS as well!
I could go on and on about what makes them DIFFERENT (which you will discover for yourself tonight) but FIRST THING I immediately notices when I first met them last year was that one of the 2 of them was a sweet, unassuming TEEN 18-year-old entrepreneur, and they had just had their first SIX FIGURE MONTH! – yes, that was NOT A TYPO!
Jim, who you will LOVE, agreed to join me tonight for a FREE TRAINING WEBINAR, and give us all an appetizer on
- how they built a 6-figure business VERY QUICKLY and are now almost to a 7-figure business,
- WHY they re-branded even when they were doing GREAT and
- HOW We Can Put This Marketing, $hit on AUTO PILOT so we can stop working WEEKENDS!
(Sunday – 7 pm eastern – DON’T MISS THIS!) CLICK HERE TO GET YOUR FREE SPOT on this webinar
BTW, I already have a personal appointment with Jim this week because once I can get all of my MARKETING ON AUTOPILOT, I’m GOING TO PARIS, dammit!
But in the meantime, I can spend more time with the two guys I love the most, Caleb and Dan! (and spend less time cursing Comcast!)
Oh, which reminds me! I almost forgot to tell you about Caleb, my 19-year “entrepreneur” son, HAD A RUN IN WITH THE COPS AGAIN! He’s in Dallas working for the summer and this time, it was different!
I wrote about it in my blog… so here ya go…hot off the press… Have a great rest of the weekend!
I’m pissed! The summer is here after surviving my baby being gone away to college for his freshman year. He was supposed to come home, so this is NOT what I was expecting!
“Baby” equals 6 ft. 2 in., 19 yr-old love of my life who decided to take a crazy door-to-door sales job in Dallas for the summer! Are you kidding me? He said to me “But I’m 18 now ma’ and I can do what I want…”. I couldn’t believe my ears or my heart!
Reading this, you may or may know not know our story. Many of my friends and clients know all the details as I’m an open book but…
My son, Caleb Sessions, published 3 books, had a TV show and spoke on stages at events, conferences and more from the ages of 16 to 18. He also has spent the last year away at college the at the University of South Florida in Saint Pete and also working for the Speaking Empire.
No big deal, right?! There are tons of brilliant teenagers out there. Many of them graduating with 5.0 GPAs, now studying pre-law or pre-med with plans to save the world.
To me, as a mom who has gone to hell and back with this kid, it’s a big deal.
Many people who have recently come into our lives the last two years, who didn’t know where we came from, may argue that he’s “lucky” to have a mom who is a “business coach” and that’s why he’s had success with speaking and becoming an author publishing 3 books.
Our close friends know the truth, LOL, I couldn’t even get him to take the trash out!
You could also argue that maybe it’s why he has sold over 1,000 books, one at a time while he was still in high school.
Or maybe that’s what got him into college? (Hmm, he still hasn’t passed the WRITING part of his SAT’s! or Math class, the first time around anyway.)
Maybe that’s what got him his social media director position at the Speaking Empire? Maybe that’s what made him want to go take a door-to-door sales job for the summer in Dallas to make extra money for school?
Not! He knew damn well when he told me he wasn’t coming home for the summer that I would be an emotional mess.
All year long, I looked forward to him coming home for the summer. (My friends have me on a peanut-butter-M&M-Watch ever since he left for Dallas)
This last year was one of the hardest years of my life being away from him. While I was really proud of him, I’ve been so worried about him as well.
But once I realized I couldn’t manipulate or “guilt” him into staying, I knew I needed to be supportive and to be a “COACH” and not the crazy-ass mom that I can be (& who has even written about in school).
So before he left, I did a “Business Breakthrough Strategy Session” with him, just like I do with new and potential clients. I took off my crazy–ass-mom hat and put on action-oriented, find-your-focus, Business and Adhd Coach hat.
Just as I did two years ago with him when he started this journey, I went through the same process I do with my potential clients and current clients. As hard as it was to want even to be supportive because I wanted him home with me, I helped him determine what he really really wanted to accomplish from taking the summer job.
Here’s the Step-By-Step process of what we did: (and that will work for ANYONE if you follow it)
- First, knowing this was a 3 1/2 months stint, we had to be very clear, very specific and have an action list of exactly what to do to reach these goals
- Second, we determined what hidden challenges have continued to get in his way in the past and what could get in the way of what we had just said we wanted.
- Third, we created a REAL PLAN that would work for his unique brain-style, his life, and what he knew would work for him; not some cookie-cutter bullshit plan that most people/coaches/programs give you that doesn’t take into account the times when shit happens, not “if” it happens.
- Fourth, we determined what resources and education he needed but we also determined what education and resources he did not need.
This way he could stay focused on what was important, so bright and shiny objects weren’t constantly distracting him.
The problem with most entrepreneurs is that bright and shiny objects are constantly distracting them.
They don’t know what to say yes to and what to say no to, so they’re either saying yes and no to the wrong things, or they say yes to everything or no to everything. None of those is going to work out well.
- And finally I use the step of mastering your psychology. Sometimes this happens daily and sometimes it’s just weekly but he has made sure that he has the resources and support in place for when his mindset tries to take a hold of the best of him.
He has been cursed at and yelled at, and today he was walking around in 105-degree heat, wondering DAILY if he made the right decision.
Well, it’s two-fold. Maybe three-fold.
So how does a kid, who was told by others (including statistics) he would never amount to anything, pull this one off?
Here’s why, so we can do it too!
- First, he’s CONSISTENT. (even when he’s tired, hot and just saw the cops again, he knocks on ONE MORE door)
- He keeps his MINDSET in check. He has somebody with him every day who stays positive and supports him (a team leader is by his side and he calls me when necessary).
- Most importantly, he IMPLEMENTS.
He takes action because he prioritizes his business as if he only has 3 1/2 months to reach his goal.
He doesn’t pack up at the end of the day and mope about it and then waste time the next day trying to re-group.
He gets back OUT THERE immediately after having a setback.
- truly STOP WHINING about what we aren’t accomplishing.
- stop “researching” everything before taking action.
- stop waiting for “perfect”.
- stop complaining that our family members or friends aren’t supporting us.
- stop complaining that we don’t have enough time, don’t have enough money, and don’t have enough blah blah.
- just get this shit done and move on.
Top-notch college kids were recruited all over the country for this summer job, but I’m finding out that almost 50% have already been sent home or left on their own because they couldn’t handle it.
So what makes a kid who has never passed a math class the first time around, who has ADHD, whose dad died, was raised by a single too-busy-for-him, crazy ass mom, leave to Texas with only a plane ticket, 1 suitcase, and $20 in his pocket HAVE SUCCESS yet again?
Note… in an environment where mom isn’t around to help, and no one is really there to pick up the pieces.
It’s Simple. The ANSWER is knowing what your vision is, having a plan, and implementation.
Yes, we talk every day and sometimes, I have to be a coach and sometimes, I have to be a mom. And while I’m freaked out most days as a mom, I’m so incredibly proud of him for staying true to his values and for following his passion and purpose. (even when others tell him he will fail)
So if the answer is simple, then why do business owners, and entrepreneurs keep STRUGGLING so much?
- If you are floundering, one of these three (vision, real plan, or implementation) are missing, I can guarantee it.
- If you aren’t making the money you deserve, one of the three is missing.
- If your business sucks, one of the three are missing!
- If you have a lackluster life in other areas, one of the three is missing.
- If you are working a full-time job and that’s not working out so well, one of these three are missing, and most likely much of this is not in line with what your true values are.
It’s TIME to IMPLEMENT and the time is NOW!
