ARE U OK? http://geni.us/sva4iUY
It is that time of year when we have high school or university finals or year-end projects to complete. It causes anxiety for most of us whether we are students or in the work force… So how do we stop procrastinating? First, I think it’s important to know where procrastination comes from. Is it because we had an authoritative parent who told us what to do and when? Do we love that rush when we complete a task at the very last minute? What about not wanting to take responsibility for a choice or an action? Maybe that’s why we don’t like to do thing ahead of time and make important decisions. Also, it could be due to us not wanting to fail, and if we didn’t really try, then we can’t say that we failed. Instead we can blame it on not having enough time or not trying at all. Whatever the cause is, let’s talk about ways to overcome it! Here are 5 tips:1. Figure out what triggers you. Is it someone telling you to do something? Or being given an unrealistic deadline? What leads you to not wanting to get started at all?
2. Not mixing your areas. I have talked about this in other videos, because it is so important that we not try to study where we sleep or visa versa. Keeping areas separate allows our mind and body to know what it is we are asking it for when we go to a certain area.
3. Do NOT make to-do lists longer than 7 items. This can just overwhelm us and cause us to stop before we start. We can do 7 new items each day, so you can still get a lot of things done each day. Also, make sure you are breaking down big items into smaller chunks. That will ensure we get going on a project sooner rather than later.
4. Take breaks! We can only focus for about 45 minutes at a time. Therefore, in order to be productive throughout the day we will need to take breaks accordingly.
5. Reward progress! No matter how small the completed tasks are, we need to reward all of the small steps we take towards our goals. I hope this was helpful! I know how hard it can be to get started sometimes, and with the holiday season upon us, there are SO many distractions! Please share and give this a thumbs up!
