Procrastination can be your best friend or your worst enemy, depending on your deadline. As tempting as it is to kick back and relax, as the deadline nears, your anxiety skyrockets. Be sure to take control of your procrastination. Check out these ways to stop your procrastination habits.
Change Your Mindset
If you think of yourself as a procrastinator, you become a procrastinator. The mind is a powerful thing. Simply changing your mindset can be a powerful tool in helping you stay on task. Rather than thinking of yourself as a procrastinator, start to think of yourself as a go-getter and your task-accomplishing behavior will follow.
Take Baby Steps
When you put off a task, you’re suddenly left with a huge project to finish in a short period of time. That huge task then feels very daunting and leads you to feel anxious about the entire project and then perpetuates the procrastination cycle. If you were to tackle the project a little bit at a time, however, the project would be more manageable, and you’d be less stressed.
Reward Your Progress
Time for fun is important, but not if it impedes your ability to accomplish tasks promptly. As you take baby steps to complete your projects, reward each step. Trade off between tasks and fun, and you’ll get your work done in no time.
Hold yourself accountable when it comes to completing your tasks. However, if you struggle with staying on task, announce it publicly. When you let other people know about your goal to complete a task, you’re more likely to complete it. Use social constructs to your advantage and get your work done.
