Most people are guilty of procrastinating most of the time. However, when procrastination becomes a habit, it becomes a problem. With a little help and four ways to stop procrastinating, you can kick the habit for good.
Suppress urges to put things off -
We are all guilty of putting things off until another time. When we make excuses for why we cannot do something, those excuses turn into procrastination. If you suppress the urge to put things off, you won't have time for excuses.
Tackle small things first-
Most of us try to do too many things at once. When we don't succeed we get frustrated and start procrastinating because we don't want to fail. If you tackle the small things first, you won't have an excuse to fail or put things off.
Outline daily routines-
Everyone makes plans to do something, jots it down on a piece of paper and forgets about it. When you jot a note down on a piece of paper, it gives you an excuse to procrastinate. The note is forgotten once it's out of sight. If you outline outline daily routines, you have a daily reminder to get things done.
Plan ahead to stay ahead-
If you are a procrastinator by trade, then you have a big problem. However, if you plan ahead, you can stay ahead. Making plans will help you curb the procrastination proclivity you've created by putting everything off until the next time.
Although there are many steps to stop procrastinating, the most important is to stop thinking no and learn to say no. It may seem contradictory, but your mind has to believe it can complete a simple task and you have to be able to say no when you really feel overwhelmed.
