3 Clever Ways To Stop Procrastinating

Nectar Memorial Day Sale


Stopping procrastination can be challenging, especially since you can't put it off until tomorrow! Most people who procrastinate did not do so overnight. Like any other bad habit, procrastination starts small and builds itself up.

Returning to a more dependable lifestyle however is possible. Follow these simple steps below and eventually, with dedication and self discipline your procrastination should be under control and your tomorrows will be a little less full!

Step #1 Start Small.

Usually if people procrastinate in their business lives they also procrastinate in their personal life too and vice versa.

Start small by making an everyday to do list. Examples include, but are not limited to; taking out the trash, doing the dishes, hanging up clothes, and maybe even littler things like making the bed or tidying up the living room.

When you have things under control at a personal level it is easier to get things under control at a business level.

Getting yourself into the routine of not putting things off at home will be difficult since the home is the easiest place to procrastinate: it is always there, you always have an extra day to work on it, and no one besides you or those who live you will know what you are putting off.

However, if you have noticed, the places that we feel most comfortable in are the easiest to begin a bad habit and also the hardest place to get rid of that bad habit.

A smoker's hardest place to deal with is their personal space and yours is too. So take control and shape yourself up at home to start the process of stopping procrastination.

Step #2 Take control at work.

No doubt if you are a procrastinator at home then you usually have things piling up at work to do or you find yourself at the end of the day hurrying to get things done that you should have done that morning or the day before.

Well stop that!

Make a list, just like you did for at home. Start the day by making a list of things you must check off by a certain time in the day.

For example, say you want to get the reports done on time that usually you put off until the end of the day. Make a list and note that reports must be checked off by 10:00 that morning.

At first you may find yourself racing and checking off that item on the list right at ten or slightly before but keep at it and you just might find yourself checking off your list long before the time its due!

Practice makes perfect and the more you practice and being on time the easier it gets and soon it becomes as second habit as procrastination is or hopefully used to be.

Step #3 If All else fails, weight the guilty consequences.

You know how mad you feel or even embarrassed when you have pushed yourself to the last minute or even past the last minute?

Whenever you feel yourself giving into the urge to procrastinate just remember that feeling and predict how you will feel the next day when you are faced with your normal circumstances plus those you have avoided and waited to do. A very simple form of self discipline but a very effective one.

Stopping procrastination isn't always easy but it can be done. Follow these steps diligently; just be careful to get started today even if only in a small way.
