Every person is faced with daily tasks for which either do not want to take, or something distracts from their implementation.
Thanks to new technologies, there are many distractions. So how can we defeat such evil?
First, you need to find out the cause of procrastination. What was the reason for it? For example, one of them may be directly related to anxiety and fear. Fear of failure and failure to meet other people's expectations stimulates the desire to postpone the case.
It also often happens that you have to finish the work at the last moment. This situation causes a surge of adrenaline and stimulates the brain to solve the problem. And, Oh, a miracle it is made in record time, and the quality of work is not affected.
At such moments, the brain finds that this is a great way to save energy and will certainly want to repeat something similar another time. In the end, there is procrastination.
Start doing something new can be fun. At the same time, the lack of experience raises doubts about the positive outcome of the case. And yet rich imagination draws a lot of insurmountable obstacles, because of which do not want to start anything. That's another reason.
Waiting for inspiration can also be a trap. The idea that one day it accidentally descends and the work will go like clockwork, slows things down. And yesterday's decision to undertake, for example, self-education, turns out to be the opposite action. After such situations, guilt is inevitable, and a good initiative loses its value.
Procrastination can cause depression and low self-esteem. Therefore, it is necessary to fight the only question is how to do it?
Any reasonable person understands that constant scrolling in the head of possible options of an outcome of this or that event is a senseless waste of time. Things could go wrong. And, if suddenly the task began to frighten with the insuperability, it should be broken into small subtasks. Small goals no longer seem so impossible.
Everyone knows that doing work at the last minute has consequences. Once unforeseen circumstances may prevent to hand over the work on time. And this may lead to loss of customers or the displeasure of the authorities. Is it not better to allocate more time to complete the task and move gradually to its completion. In this case, it is unlikely that any circumstance will catch by surprise.
Start doing something at all, despite the lack of the necessary skills — this is a real step to success! Sometimes it happens that the understanding of the subject comes through experience. You can't just dream of writing a book or learning to play an instrument. You just need to overcome yourself!
And finally, making plans for the day, week and year will be much more productive than waiting for inspiration. There are no ideal circumstances to start doing something. Success is not born in the mind, it must be systematized first on paper and then in action.
The fight against procrastination requires focused efforts, but it is worth it. Any business brought to the end will bring more joy and satisfaction in life than postponing it for later.
