When you procrastinate, it usually requires more effort to complete the same task later.
Three ideas to increase success in overcoming procrastination include:
- Get over perfection paralysis… unless you are a brain surgeon 90% right is better than 100% of nothing. Having all the information before taking action takes too long or isn’t even possible. Really on your self-esteem and your intuition.
- Self-discipline may be a dirty word but committing to someone else really works! You’ll work harder at not disappointing others than disappointing yourself. “Announce your plans/goals” or if you’re really committed to succeeding, sign an agreement to pay a sum of money to the other person if you don’t complete the task or behaviour.
- Use the 21 day success habit check list. Post a calendar and give yourself a check each day you complete a task or behaviour. Coloured marders seem to help! After 21 days it’ll become habit.
