Ten Techniques To Stop Procrastinating

Don't let procrastinating take over

The comfort zone is a psychological state in which one feels familiar,safe,at ease,and secure.

If you always do what is easy and choose the path of least resistance, you never step outside your comfort zone. Great things don’t come from comfort zones. -Roy T. Bennet.

#1 Take five minutes, right now, to identify what you are putting off.

#2  Do one of those tasks right away. Action eliminates anxiety.

#3  If getting started is the hardest part, set a designated time slot to do the task.

#4  Beat boredom by using your mind by thinking something challenging.

#5  Imagine you have only few years to live.

#6  Don’t worry about perfection. What counts is quality of effort, not perfect results.

#7  Avoid using phrases like “I wish..” , “I hope..”, “May be I’ll..”. Instead say “I will”.

#8  If what you are putting off involves other people, consult with them.

#9  If you fear the consequences for this action you’ve been avoiding, ask yourself, ” what is the very worst things that could happen if I did it today?”

#10 Vividly picture how free you will feel once the task is completed. Free from anxiety.
