7 Tips To Help You Get a Jump Start
We are all guilty of procrastination and there are several reasons for putting off a job. Take a little time to reflect on why and try developing a better approach.
For jobs you don’t like, consider delegating the task to someone else, or hire someone.
Perfectionists may benefit from a little shift in their thinking. Instead of trying to reach the impossible ‘perfect’ strive for excellence and quality.
The over-scheduled procrastinator needs to prioritize. Set a realistic schedule to lessen stress as the deadline approaches.
For a job that you are not sure how to complete, start with some research. What is involved? Can you plan the steps required to attain your goal?
Schedule regular planning sessions to prioritize and re-evaluate what you need to accomplish. We are more likely to put off something if we don’t know how long it will take.
When you create your daily to-do list make the tasks short and practical. Break the project into small steps. Achieving several small goals is easier than one very large one.
Think about the time of day you work best and tackle unpopular jobs when you have more energy.
When you realize why you put things off you are in a better position to make changes and get started.
