Putting Off Procrastination

Procrastination means putting off what you know should be done now. People procrastinate for lots of reasons. Among others, they fear failure or are poor decision makers, disorganized, too tired, over stressed, sick or sometimes simply lazy. Unfortunately, putting off important tasks can intensify what caused the procrastination in the first place.

If you tend to delay what you shouldn't, stop -- not someday, but today. The following suggestions may help you on your way to a more "on-time" life.

Look at your situation realistically. If you just can't get started on something, it may be wrong for you. If the cons outweigh the pros of any situation, reconsider your commitment. However, it isn't okay to drop important responsibilities just because you put them off too long.

Be prepared for difficulties in any project. If you become discouraged or develop the habit of taking a break when things bog down, you may never get back to the task at hand.

Think positively. Perhaps you despise doing the paperwork associated with your job. Instead of telling yourself "I can't bear completing these forms," say "I'll get started now and work efficiently, then this will be over in 30 minutes."

Think ahead. Picture how a finished project will look and the satisfaction you'll feel when it's done.

Do things right the first time. Doing a second-rate job the first time may only mean you must begin again later.

Keep up with small tasks so an accumulation won't overwhelm you or become more trouble. File an important invoice immediately, for example, so you won't waste time looking for it later. Process your mail as soon as it arrives so it won't grow into a huge pile that will take hours to sort through. Another plus: Completing even a small task may help you see the entire project as more manageable.

Dig in. The sooner you begin a project, the sooner you'll become absorbed with it. And even if you don't become absorbed, you can feel some satisfaction about what you've already accomplished.
