Procrastinating Comes To An End With These 4 Simple Tips

Procrastinating can be overcome! I would love to say I never procrastinate, that I’m always getting things done early, never waiting until the last minute, etc., but that would be a work of fiction. In actuality, I know people who have never procrastinated a day in their lives. I unfortunately never adopted that as a complete lifestyle. I have, however, gotten better throughout the years. Here are a few tricks I’ve picked up that helped me stop procrastinating.

1. Eat The Frog

If you’ve ever attended any sales seminar or class you’ve probably heard this before, and if you haven’t here’s the logic. The frog is your most difficult or least favorite task of the day. The idea is if you eat the frog first (complete your most difficult task first) the rest of your day should look easy. This should keep you from procrastinating on the easier or more enjoyable tasks of your day. If you leave it until the end of the day, you’ll only encourage procrastination because you’ll dread it all day long and put it off for as long as you can.

2. Minimize Distractions

It’s easy to continue to procrastinate when there’s something else to do or see. Keep your workspace free and clear of distractions. This will keep procrastinating issues to a minimum.

3. Be Prepared

This goes right along with minimizing distractions. If you have to get up to get supplies, you are exposing yourself to distractions, let alone the time it takes to re-acclimate yourself with the task at hand after an interruption. So make sure you are prepared by gathering any needed supplies ahead of time.

4. Procrastinating Due To Overwhelm

Sometimes the reason we procrastinate is we feel a project or task is overwhelming, so to look at it as a whole just discourages the desire to complete it. Look at it in smaller steps. Set small goals that lead to the overall completion to keep it from getting overwhelming. Then at the end of the day, if you’ve reached your small goal, you will feel that you have accomplished something vs looking at it as a whole and seeing you only got a fraction of the work done.

Start with these and you’ll be on your way to a more balanced work life!
