Hi there, I’m Rachel Z. Cornell, aka The Pro-Nagger. My expertise focuses on ending procrastination and perfectionism to help people see results.
Did you know procrastination and perfectionism are most common among intelligent and innovative people? It’s no wonder I tend to attract academics, authors, and independent professionals.
Are you procrastinating on projects which would transform your life if you finished them? For example, what about your article? It could be what’s standing between you and huge amounts of professional success, satisfaction, and even tenure. You know if you finish that book, you’re going to advance your career and be able to inspire more people. And if you finish your dissertation, you’re going to have more earning power. In all of these cases, you will feel a huge sense of satisfaction for finishing such substantial projects. But you’re not finishing.
For years you have been telling yourself to just do it. You don’t do it. Instead, you look up productivity hacks, try creating a routine, and join writing groups. But nothing helps.
Not really. Not for very long. Usually, the only way you get yourself to work or hit send is to become so frustrated and mad at yourself you do something.
Soon enough, though, you’re head-first down the research hole, re-re-re-editing, scrubbing the kitchen floor (with a toothbrush) or extinguishing an “important” fire in your department. You wonder “what’s wrong with me?” There is nothing wrong with you. I repeat…”There is nothing wrong with you.”
Most people try to motivate themselves using methods that don’t work for them. Real power comes when you know your motivational triggers and continue to motivate yourself even when you’re in a deep slump.
The ProNagger method isn’t focused on more-faster-better but on meaningful success…With a good night’s sleep!
So, do you need to finish (or start) your book, launch your product, finish your article or dissertation to create the kind of respect, satisfaction and rewarding success you know is possible?
Please excuse our dust
We’re doing a bit of redesign work around here. Please excuse the mess. We hope to have it finished very soon
