Are you prone to procrastination?

So many entrepreneurs are waiting for things to settle down before they make certain investments or big moves.

Procrastination is driven by fear, complacency, a weak vision and wrongful thoughts - all things that entrepreneurs don’t do!

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Pavlo Phitidis, Director and CEO of the Aurik Business Incubator, for his weekly small business feature.

Phitidis shared his thoughts on how to get cracking on what you need to do sooner rather than later.

Scroll down for quotes from the audio below.

Procrastination is a thief of time.

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Incubator

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Incubator

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Incubator

Just start! The only way to know is to act.

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Incubator

Entrepreneurs are like water. They flow with gravity and, if something is in their way, they simply move around it.
