Procrastinator No More!


Procrastination is when ever we postpone a task or duty intentionally without a valuable explanation. It is a natural tendency in people. Let's face it, sometimes we are tired or a specific task is unpleasant to perform and we respond by putting it off until later. If it happens only once or on something of not much importance it is okay. But, what happens when a student keeps putting off the school work. At the last minute he may want to make up for the lost time but fails the class. So, can you see how procrastination can get in the way of your success and objectives? Therefore, it is crucial for people to learn how to avoid this negative tendency and manage it effectively. Below I have added some tips that can convert anyone in to a procrastinator no more!

? On a daily basis make a "to do list". Check each completed item as you go.

? Prioritize, do first what is most important. This way if you do not have a chance to do the other ones (for any reason) at least, you have completed the most important duties.

? When there are tasks that you rather avoid classify them between the most tedious and the lighter ones. Do the ones that you find less amusing first. Once you are done with the ones you dislike your day will flow extra smoothly.

? Motivate yourself by keeping in mind why you need to complete this task, of what problem you would get rid off? Or what will be accomplished?

? Find out what will motivate you to complete a certain task. For example some people rather complete a project with a group.

? Manage your time effectively, like that you can schedule relax or fun time also. Extracurricular activities will not get on the way of your duties.

? Set effective goals, do not only define your goal but, also add a time frame in which you would like to accomplish it.

? Take one step at a time. For example: I do not have enough time to clean the entire house but, I will fix a room or two today and continue tomorrow.

? Always keep in mind a special procrastination quote. Here is one I particularly like:

"Don't wait. The time will never be just right." By Napoleon Hill
