Scarlett, my daughter, makes me so proud to be her father. At 10X Growth Conference, she delivered a speech on procrastination, and this is what you need to learn from it.

Have you ever found yourself working furiously to complete a task, while silently cursing yourself for not starting it sooner?

If so, you’re not alone. You see, procrastination sneaks up on us all, but you have to understand something first.

Procrastination is a habit, which means you can break it. You have power over it.

My daughter, Scarlett Cardone: “I take action right away!”

When my 11-year-old daughter Scarlett spoke on the 10X Growth Conference stage, she shared her experience with procrastination and how she beat it.

Scarlett told this great story about a time when she put off her homework to watch a baking show on TV. Then, she realized that she couldn’t even have fun watching the show.


She was worried about her homework the whole time.

“I wasn’t getting my homework done, and I wasn’t enjoying the baking show. What’s the point of that?”

Scarlett goes on to explain that when you procrastinate, you’re lying to yourself and you’re betraying yourself. If a kid can realize that and take action, you have no excuse not to do the same.

You see, waiting only makes things harder. So, just get it done. Quit overthinking it and take that first step.

When you don’t feel like making that phone call, go dial the number.

Don’t feel like hitting the gym? Who cares. Go anyway.

I’m not saying it’s easy. But it’s simple.

Be Great,

Grant Cardone
