We all struggle with procrastination. That’s a fact.
We often disguise as “I just want to make sure that it’s right” or “I don’t want to just put anthing out there.”
If we are being honest with ourselves it’s because we are scared. Scared of failing; scared of the embarrassment of the project falling flat.
In this video, Daniel DiPiazza talks about how having a sense of urgency is imperative. You don’t have forever to do shit. He uses the examples of Tupac Shakur and Malcolm X as people who acted as if they already knew their lives would be cut short…
Tupac Shakur, for example, was what you would call prolific. He released 12 albums (10 posthomously) , starred in 8 movies and wrote 2 poetry books all before the age of 25!
And honestly a lot of his music wasn’t that great. But he’s not remembered for the mediocre songs that he put out.
He’s remebered for some of the most profound records of all time (‘Dear Mama‘, ‘Californai Love‘, ‘Brenda’s Got a Baby‘, etc.) arguably made the biggest impact on Hip Hop and American culture in the mid-late 90s of any pop culture figure.
He had the same 24 hours in his day that you and I have. He just applied them to his purpose, regardless of the outcome.
As entrepreneurs, we must act with a sense of urgency at all time if we want to build the moment needed to achieve big things.
