Procrastination is one of the things that holds us back and causes us to lose a grip on our dreams. If we procrastinate too much we may live to find out that all of our hopes and dreams never came true because we never made time for them.
So, how do you start overcoming procrastination? The first step is to figure out if there is a reason why you are procrastinating. If you are procrastinating because you are being forced to do something that you don’t want to do than maybe the only way around it would be to look for alternatives. Are there other ways for you to meet your same goals without using a strategy that causes you to procrastinate? Can you think of a better way to succeed?
If not then you’ll just have to suck it up and get to work. If there are, than you might want to take a look at how you can make your work more pleasant and therefore make it more likely that you will do it.
Another thing you can do is to simply reward yourself after all of your hard work. You normally feel better after doing something that took a lot of hard work to complete just because it made you feel good about yourself and your abilities. But adding something extra can make it that much easier to get to work.
For instance telling yourself that you can go out with your friend s after you finish your paper can be a great way to motivate you to start on your paper. The sooner you start the more likely it is that you will finish it and go out with your friends.
Procrastination is one of those things that you just have to nip in the butt. If you can overcome this, you will have all new limits that you can reach.
