7 Tips for Overcoming Procrastination
I know how busy you must be so I’ll get right to the point. Here are 7 simple and practical tips to help you overcome procrastination:
1.Realize that people procrastinate for all sorts of reasons… so dig deeper and try to understand the real reasons why you are procrastinating and that will help you find the right strategies to overcome it.
2.Do your best to get started. The simple act of getting started with a small piece of your big project is often enough to break the inertia. It doesn’t matter what you do, pick something and get started.
3.Pick a simple, easy task to get started. Just answer this question: “What’s the easiest way for me to get started with this project?” … Then DO it.
4.A great way to help you get started is to make a commitment to spend just 30, 20 or even 15 minutes working on your project, then you can stop and take a break without any guilt. You’ll often decide to keep on working and let your momentum carry you through.
5.To make this even more powerful, schedule your 30, 20 or 15 minute block right into your calendar and use it as an ‘implementation intention’ to take action
6.In a recent study, researchers found that simply using ‘implementation intentions’ (like scheduling a time block in your calendar) makes it much more likely that you WILL take action, so just do it!
7.Examine the way you think about and talk about your projects and tasks. We often make a task or project seem far worse than it actually is, which can encourage procrastination
