"When I have the Time"

PROBLEMATIC PROCRASTINATION

Yes, I too have been a chronic procrastinator.

And the last thing I want to read is yet another article by a self-designated super-human on the theory of getting one's act together ... unless I am trying to put something off ...

So, without further ado, here are the tips I have found most helpful - maybe you will, too.

TAKE A DEEP BREATH
Take a minute or two to think about the job -
your moment of Zen
Is it really that complicated?
*simplify*

BE HONEST
Figure out what's really stopping you from moving ahead - Is it truly something you have absolutely no control over?
*take control*

GET THE RIGHT TOOL
Whether the task unclear, you have too many distractions, or you have too much on your plate, you can find specific fixes - which might include sub-contracting.

MORE THAN A MOUTHFUL
When you do dig in, don't bit off more than you can chew. Break up the task into bite-sized chunks that you can accomplish in under an hour ... then take a break - let the back of your mind work on things for a bit.

*
TREAT YOURSELF WHEN YOU'RE DONE!
(my favourite tip :)
*

MAKE A TO-DO LIST
prioritize and schedule the individual tasks
* use it*

 

STOP MULTI-TASKING
(I love this tip from Ilya Pozin | @ilyaNeverSleeps )
"... changing tasks more than 10 times in a day makes you dumber than being stoned. When you’re stoned, your IQ drops by five points. When you multitask, it drops by an average of 10 points, 15 for men, five for women (yes, men are three times as bad at multitasking than women). "
