Aug 29, 2007
Do you have problem with procrastination? A lot of people do. Procrastination causes us the delay in our achievement and a lot of time failure. We therefore should find some way to overcome it. This article will show you how to overcome procrastination with some simple techniques.

1. Think on paper.
One of the major mistakes that most people have when it comes to having the job done is that they just work in their mind. Without the written plan. You tend to have vague idea what to do. As a result, you tend to procrastinate what you are not so sure about the step. Practice yourself the prepare and plan thoroughly. Break down the job to be done clearly so that you can see the total picture.

2. Gather all necessary materials in front of you when you start to do the job so that you don't have to leave the place until it finished.
Once you have everything in front of you, you tend to be able to stay focus without being deviated from the tasks. A lot of people are upset for not finding needed materials and they have to go and look for it. You can get sidetracked if you leave what you are doing. In addition, to have everything ready will give you a peace of mind until you finish the task.

3. Do one small thing to get start.
Do the tiny task first to warm up your mind. Once you finish the first piece of task, you will have a sense of gratification. You would like to do more and a little bit further. This is how we start the momentum.

4. Do the fear and anxiety first. Fear of failure.
Most people have the fear of failure for the task they aim for doing. As a result, they dare not to start doing anything because the scary part of the task is so daunting. In this case, you have to start with the part that you fear most in order to eliminate what makes you fear inside. When you are capable to get rid of it, you will be able to take care of other tasks more easily.

5. Start the day with most unpleasant task first.
The most difficult task is the hurdle for you to come across. If you can do and finish the most difficult tasks at the beginning, the rest of the task will be a piece of cake. The chance that you finish the task without any procrastination will be very high.

6. Think of negative consequences that will happen if the job is not done.
What do you think will happen to you if what you aim for fall apart. Do you dare to face other people including your love ones if you can not discipline yourself enough to get what you want? Do you really want your goals? Thinking of how you can not achieve your goals will move you toward taking action and then you will not dare to procrastinate.

7. Think of how you are going to benefit from the result of job being done.
This is an opposite to number six. Think of all the reward you will be having when you achieve your goals. What will you feel and what others will view you. How excellent it is going to be if you can achieve all your goals? When you think about it, you will have enormous power to drive you to things immediately.

8. Set aside fifteen minutes time block for the project.
If you always procrastinate, try to allocate time block of fifteen minutes to do just this project without any intervention. If you can do fifteen minutes, you can find later that you want to do more than that and so on. When you do this regularly, you will notice that you start to progress in the project. Later , you would want to allocate more and more time to it. Before you know, the project can be completed.

9. Do not worry about doing the job perfectly.
Start doing thing without much worry on the outcome at the begging. If we can do it perfectly in the first attempt, we may need to reconsider if the project is really worthwhile doing. Just start doing something is already a good beginning of any project.

10. Develop the compulsion force. Refuse to leave the scene without finishing it.
You will need to force yourself into doing it. Taking action is the major theme of every success. If you do not feel compelled on what you do, the chance that you can be successful will be very slim.

11. Maintain fast tempo.
Move fast. Take actions fast. Make it your habit to work quickly and effectively. If it becomes your habit to move fast, you will tend not to procrastinate everything that comes to your life. You will tend to start taking action now.

12. Visualize that you can finish your task on time.
