Procrastination, big and long word, right? Well, if you are a big procrastinator I think there might be some things you should know to overcome it. As the time goes on and on, lots of things are finishing: work, studies etc. This means there are also things starting as well, or maybe things you want to start.
To do that, procrastination is not a good friend. You need to leave it behind so you can fail or succeed. You will never succeed if you don’t even try because of fear. Fear, only paralyze us, it’s our worst enemy. Here are some handy tips that will allow you to effectively move forward and achieve your goals.
Try to understand the cause
Think of the things that distracts your attention, perhaps it’s your head trying to get everything done at the same time. that happens very often. In that case, you should try to separate things and one thing at a time.
Make a list of things to do
It can sound silly or even too simple to solve the problem. However, it’s one of the most effective tools to organize yourself. Start with things you think you can achieve. That, will give you confidence to get everything else done without stressing yourself out.
Think of your goals and picture yourself achieving them
Rethink your final goals, and remember why you are doing it. If you forget them, everything ends up making no sense at all, that is why we mostly start procrastinating. We forget our final goals and get stressed and sad because of not achieving them. So, the thing is, what are you trying to achieve? And then you think, well, how can I achieve that? In that order, nothing can end up wrong!
This is one of the most important things while working. Another thing that can sound silly as the list. However, it is definitely not a silly thing. Just think of it: our environment is the physical place where we create things. How can we create if the place where we are doesn’t inspire us sufficiently? Well, should compare it to clothes for example. Something that is completely attached to feelings. A place that inspires you, helps you create better and most interesting things.
Don’t overwhelm yourself
This title speaks for itself. If you try to overcome procrastination scheduling each hour of the day with work, you will not do your best at all. It will happen exactly the opposite thing. You’ll get overwhelmed with everything without even achieving one thing. You should instead, work half of your day and keep the other half free. Well, at least to start…
Stop your head from thinking in unachievable goals
When you are starting a project or something in particular and can’t stop thinking of where would you be in the end of the process you’ll miss the path. To achieve a big goal, you first need to overcome lots of small obstacles, if you don’t do that, getting to the end will be no easy task. Is like trying to win a race, starting from the end. It doesn’t make any sense, does it?
