A Personal Profile of You
Written by: Michelle Hanisch
Everyone I have ever met loves finding stuff out about themselves. I’m no exception. As soon as I see a link to a test that will tell me something about my personality, I’m onto it. I’ve even done Facebook ones that profess to tell you what your ‘age’ is by answering stupid questions. In case you were wondering, mine was 7.
I’m guessing you’re no exception. The interest in stuff about yourself I mean. Not having an intellectual age of 7.
So today I’m going to provide you with a link to a research-based website that will tell you what type of procrastinator you are. You have to read this article first though.
If you haven’t jumped to the end I foresee that you will have a low score on the Procrastination scale.
So why is it important to know what type of procrastinator you are? Because there are different strategies that work best with different types. I go through these in my Stop Procrastinating and Get Sh*t Done Program.
If you’re the type who procrastinates because you don’t value what you’re doing, you need to find a way to inject meaning into it.
If you’re the type who doesn’t expect to do well, don’t feel good enough, or lack belief in your ability to do this task, you need to build your self-efficacy and optimism.
If you’re the type who leaves everything to the last minute because you think you work better under deadlines, you need to work on your impulsivity and planning.
So take the test and then let me know what your profile is:
(P.S. Don’t be alarmed by having to give your details to take the survey. It’s for research purposes (which you will also be supporting by taking the test). They don’t email you EVER.)
There are four ways you can engage with me:
1. Subscribe to these emails and get them once a week in your inbox so you never miss a video from me.
2. Join the Trades Business Toolshed Facebook Group where you can watch these videos, ask me questions or talk to your peers.
3. Attend my next Tools Down workshop.
4. Book yourself a 10-minute chat with me. We’ll talk about whether coaching is right for you now and if it is, we’ll go further into the process before you have to make your mind up.
See you later.
