According to studies by the Procrastination Research Group, 95% of us are prone to procrastination and 20% of us are chronic procrastinators.
There are some standard reasons for procrastination. Maybe your goals are unreachable or perhaps you’re just a disorganized person. But, if you’re like me, you have the skills to get things done, but put them off because you just don’t want to do them. Here are some tips to help you overcome procrastination.
Five Steps to Eliminate Procrastination
1. Break large projects into 30-minute tasks and schedule them on your calendar.
2. Start each day with the one task you most dread. Get it over with and move into a happier day.
3. Focus on moving three things a mile, not 100 things an inch.
4. Don’t set goals that you can’t achieve. This will drive you to procrastinate even more.
5. Spend 15 minutes at the end of each day laying out tomorrow’s goals. This gives you a jump start on the next day.
