This podcast is my tribute to Dan Sullivan who writes brilliantly about the joy of procrastination.
Dan is the founder of Strategic Coach, a company that helps elite entrepreneurs achieve exponential success.
He is an original thinker who helps you (among other things) to reframe procrastination from a negative to a positive experience. He has written an entire book on the subject called “Procrastination Priority.”
He also does a podcast with another brilliant marketer, Dean Jackson, called “The Joy of Procrastination.” Dean, by the way, is the man who invented the capture page.
In this episode, I focus on three things that help you to liberate yourself from the weight and bondage of procrastination:
Also, I offer you this powerful thought that Dan expresses that can literally transform and enrich your life. “Self forgiveness is when you give up wishing that you had a better past.”
