Do you have this perception that people perform better under pressure? Or do you think that, you cannot perform a job efficiently unless you’re feeling at the top of your form?
Now you got me!
Perhaps these are some signs that you are a procrastinator. But wait, you’ve got a lot of company.
According to a survey 20% of people identify themselves as chronic procrastinator.
Most of these people agree that it is the biggest obstacle which delays them or stops them from achieving success.
They realize it too late.
So, if you think that you’re also having this habit and want to overcome it, then you’re at the right place.
Here, I’m going to share some tips on beating procrastination.
1. Make a To-Do list.
Make a list of tasks you have to do. It’ll save you from excusing that you forgot a certain work which you should have done.
Our brain works better when we give it a clear indication about what we really want to do and what are our priorities.
Making a list helps you in estimating and allocating required time to do enlisted work. This way you can work smarter and better and can focus on one task at a time.
2. Set realistic goals
Do not set too much unrealistic goal for yourself. Otherwise it can become a burden for you, instead set simple and realistic goals and push yourself to achieve them.
3. Remove unnecessary habits from your life.
Unnecessary habits like, too much Internet surfing, video games are major distractions for anyone who want to organize their work and get things done.
Spot those time consuming unessential habits and take action to remove them from your life.
It’ll eventually save you valuable time which you can utilize for other important tasks.
4. Stop overthinking.
Overthinking is a trap which keeps you busy doing nothing and wastes your time. It creates an environment of fear and ‘what ifs’ in your brain which results as discouragement.
So, before doing anything stop yourself from overthinking and take action as soon as possible.
5. Promise yourself a reward.
After successfully completing a task or removing an unnecessary habit, reward yourself. It’ll make you feel better and motivate you to prioritize and do more important tasks.
