Overcoming procrastination

If you tend to be a procrastinator, you are not alone. Millions of individuals procrastinate occasionally. Of course, there are those that deal with procrastination on a much more frequent basis, as well.

Regardless of the group you fit into, there are things you can do to help you overcome this bad habit. Soon, you will find yourself completing tasks at a rate you never thought possible. Increased productivity is ALWAYS a good thing!

One of the best things you can do when overcoming procrastination is to make a list of the things you need to get done, over the course of a few days.

For best results, at least at the beginning, it should be a somewhat simple plan. Break tasks up in approximately 30 minute increments… that way it will seem as though you are getting more done. As you cross each step off of your list, you will be one step closer to completing that specific task.

Alternate projects you are not fond of with tasks you enjoy doing. Doing so will break up the monotony of the day and reduce the chances of lower productivity.

Make note of the interruptions that occur during your day. Try to prevent them in the future, once you have detected a pattern.

These are just a few steps in avoiding procrastination. With determination, you can ‘just say no’ to procrastination.
