Don’t Procrastinate Ever Again

Your Procrastination Solution

As adults, we have to do a ton of stuff we don’t love doing, like going to work and paying bills. That’s never going to go away, so we should learn to make the best of it. If you often procrastinate, it’s time to put a stop to it. Here’s how.

Procrastinate Less

You probably procrastinate more than you realize, and that’s the biggest obstacle to doing more of what you really want to do. Putting off what you hate is a short-term solution—at some point you’re going to have to do it and you’re going to hate doing it even more because now you have the stress and pressure of deadlines. The best thing to do is to get the stuff you hate out of the way as soon as possible. You’ll be less stressed out while you do it, and you’ll get to do what you love sooner.

Have Meaningful Deadlines

If you have a deadline, don’t extend it. You’re only going to procrastinate again. Deadlines should be taken seriously and if you don’t feel motivated to meet it, attach a treat to it. Whether it’s finally getting to binge watch a season of your favorite show, or taking a weekend trip, you’ll be more inclined to meet your deadlines if you have something to look forward to once they are met.

Create Manageable Parts

You don’t have to complete an unpleasant task all at once (if you don’t procrastinate). You can break it up into smaller, manageable parts, and do one part at a time. You can also insert something fun in between the parts as mini rewards for working towards completion.

Rank the Manageable Parts

Let’s say you have to pay a bunch of bills and you’ve broken this task down into manageable parts. Now think about the parts themselves. Are they equally annoying or are some parts less annoying than others? Maybe you hate having to call the credit card company, but you like organizing your bills by due date or by amount owed. You have two choices, you can do what you like the least first, just to get it out of the way, or you can do it last so you can work up to it.

Don’t Create an Impossible Schedule

We are often poor judges of time. We don’t always know how long something’s going to take and we don’t consider roadblocks along the way. As a result, we over schedule and overcommit, which is really just a way of setting ourselves up to fail. This is a never-ending cycle. Just plan and commit to less. That way, if you end up doing more, you’ll feel accomplished and on track. And if you get finished early, you now have time for a little fun and relaxation.

Just Do It!

At the end of the day, you’re an adult and being an adult means doing things you don’t like to do. Sometimes you just have to suck it up, and the sooner you do it, the sooner that annoying task will be off your plate. There’s a chance that you are making the task out to be bigger, more annoying and more complicated than it actually is. It’s probably not as bad as you’re making it out to be, so you shouldn’t waste a lot of time being frustrated over nothing.

    There is a difference between procrastination and having a decision making process. Procrastinators don’t follow through with their ideas, thoughts etc. While those with a decision making process find successful answers and solutions moving forward.

    People procrastinate when they are not sure of what to do or do not know how to do it. If you are in that spot, get advice from several people that you respect or from a professional before the procrastination goes on too long and turns into a problem.
