Any great cook or professional chef knows that it’s best to start cooking when the pot is hot.
That goes for ovens, pans, and grills, too. They should be the ideal temperature when you start cooking. This small, vital step is one of the secrets to cooking a great dish.
It works the same way with ideas or things you want to get done. The best time to build momentum is when you first think of an idea or start on a task. The motivation is there. The excitement is there. The desire is there.
The pot is hot.
Take some immediate action steps that you can use to measure your progress. Wait too long and your pot gets cold. The motivation is gone. The excitement is gone. The desire is gone. Not cool.

ACTION STEPS/DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

2. Why do so many people procrastinate when it comes to working on their ideas and the projects they need to get done? What are some of the reasons for their behavior? Are those reasons legitimate or are they excuses?
3. What kinds of things do you put off doing? Why?
4. How do you feel when other people put off something you want done soon? Why?
5. Have you ever had a great idea and somebody else stole it because you didn’t work on it right away? What was the idea? How did you feel when you realized what happened? What are you going to do to make sure that never happens again? Have you ever seen or heard about someone else’s idea getting stolen because of procrastination? What happened?
