Hello, how are you?

Do you procrastinate? Is it stopping you from achieving success?

Procrastination is one of the most common reasons why people don’t get as much work done as they’d like.

If you’re like many people, you might spend more time planning to start working than actually working.

Procrastination can be an issue even with the most productive people. Especially if you feel like there’s just too much to do in too little time. 

But it’s important to remember that we all have the same amount of hours in the day, and some people seem to get more done than others in that time frame, while still having time left over to relax and enjoy their lives. 

Instead of wondering why you procrastinate and what you can do about it, use these three tips to become more productive in less time. Then you can be more proactive about getting your work done and enjoying the free time that comes with it.

Check out these three simple tips on how to stop procrastinating and finally get work done!

1) Don't Overthink / Take Action

Once you decide that you’re going to do it, don’t overthink it. Take action in 5 seconds or less. This is known as "The 5-Second Rule". There is a lot of science behind why we procrastinate and how to overcome it.

Overthinking will lead you to think of other things and get distracted which will result in getting no or little work done – just stop and take action!

2) Set Up a Work Only Space

The ideal work-only space should be a place you can go to focus on your work. You don’t want to be distracted by personal things or stressors that may arise at home or at work.

If you’re an employee, consider requesting a space where you can go when you need to get something done and not be bothered by coworkers.

If you run your own business from home, designate an area in your house that is solely used for working purposes. Make sure to remove all distractions such as TV, and smartphones.

3) Look a The Small Picture / Ignore The Big Picture

Staring at a to-do list that has ten items on it can make it difficult to get started. It is easy to feel overwhelmed and not start anything at all.

When you look at your list in its entirety, it is hard to see how each individual step will contribute to your overall goal of completing everything.

Start by listing 3-5 things you want to get done each day. Focus on getting a few tasks done every day which will lead you to your goal instead of focusing on the big picture/ the big goal and getting overwhelmed over it. One task at a time, one day at a time.

Stop Procrastinating & Reach Your Goals

While everybody procrastinates to some degree, there are those of us who find it so hard to get work done that we all but abandon the task at hand entirely. 

If you can relate to this feeling, then be sure to use the tips above to stop procrastinating and become more productive and avoid business failure.

It will help you better manage your tasks and reduce distractions so you can get more work done in less time.

Procrastination, unfortunately, is a very common problem—and it can come with some serious psychological baggage.

Start using these tips and I promise you, you will be getting work done like never before! ;-)

You can do it!

Much love,
