Procrastination reduces your chance of success

in

You need a 7 Day BrainwashAre you your own worst enemy? Do you find that you waste precious time when really you know that you should be getting on with any important tasks? Do you feel guilty when you finish way behind schedule or perhaps fail to finish at all?

Whilst you are not the only one to procrastinate in life, it’s a negative aspect that has to be corrected if you are truly to complete your goals in life. Worse, procrastination can easily lead to feelings of depression and worthlessness therefore becoming a vicious circle of time-wasting and reducing your chances of success.

Sometimes, just starting any tasks can be the hardest element to overcome but in order to change behaviours that might have been established for a long time, you need to force yourself to get stuck in and get on with anything on that all-important list.

If procrastination is your secret deadly enemy, then consider adopting some of the following:

-Improve your time management by compiling daily to-do lists if you don’t do so already. Write down everything that needs to be completed that day and then mark them in order of priority. Where possible, write your to-do list the night before so that you know exactly what needs to be done first thing.

-Set your alarm so that you get up earlier. Procrastinating first thing in the morning can lose you hours and then you are always playing catch up. An extra hour can make a great deal of difference plus it starts you off on a positive note.

-Watch less TV. You may be surprised by how much time is really wasted through casual absorption of any favoured TV programmes. Make a note of all the programmes that you really want to watch (or record) and then aim to finish all of your tasks before the first important programme comes on. This way you are more likely to focus on completing those tasks as you have something good to aim for.

-It’s easy to fall foul to lazy days but everyone is entitled to a little self-indulgent time, just don’t waste your time completely, instead focus on your end goal and visualize how good you are going to feel once you have achieved your dreams. If you are a visual person, this can really help you to breathe life into your goals and to help it become a tangible reality.
