7 Real Ways To Beat Procrastination
Hope all is well with you, for real.
Lately, I’ve been struggling with procrastination.
I’ve been procrastinating on making more Youtube videos, making musical projects, on starting up side hustles, etc.
These past 2 months have been rather difficult in that realm.
If you’re procrastinating on starting something as well, don’t worry. We all struggle with it at times.
Procrastination is something that we all experience from time to time. It’s that nagging feeling that we should be doing something else, but we can’t seem to get started. Whether it’s a work project, a household chore, or simply going to the gym, we all have tasks that we would rather put off until later. However, putting things off can lead to stress, anxiety, and a feeling of being overwhelmed. If you want to beat procrastination and start being more productive, here are seven real ways to do it.
Break Tasks into Smaller Pieces
One of the biggest reasons why people procrastinate is because they feel overwhelmed. They look at a task and think that it’s too big, too complicated, or too time-consuming. However, the truth is that most tasks can be broken down into smaller pieces. By breaking a task into smaller, more manageable pieces, you’ll feel less overwhelmed and be more likely to get started. For example, instead of trying to clean your entire house in one day, break it down into individual rooms and tackle one room at a time.
Set a Schedule
Another way to beat procrastination is to set a schedule. When you have a set schedule, you’re more likely to stick to it. It’s easy to put things off when you don’t have a plan, but when you have a schedule, you’ll know exactly what you need to do and when you need to do it. Make sure to schedule breaks into your day as well, as taking breaks can actually help improve your productivity.
Distractions are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to procrastination. Whether it’s your phone, social media, or the TV, distractions can easily take you away from the task at hand. One way to beat procrastination is to eliminate distractions. Turn off your phone, log out of social media, and create a quiet workspace. By eliminating distractions, you’ll be able to focus on the task at hand and get more done in less time.
Use the Pomodoro Technique
The Pomodoro Technique is a time management technique that can help you beat procrastination. The idea behind the technique is to work for a set amount of time, usually 25 minutes, and then take a short break. After four rounds of working and taking breaks, you take a longer break. By breaking your work into smaller chunks and taking regular breaks, you’ll be able to stay focused and productive.
Visualization is a powerful tool that can help you beat procrastination. When you visualize yourself completing a task, you’ll be more motivated to get started. Take a few minutes to imagine what it will feel like to complete the task, and how good you’ll feel once it’s done. Visualization can help you overcome the mental barriers that are keeping you from getting started.
Find an Accountability Partner
Sometimes, the best way to beat procrastination is to have someone else hold you accountable. Find a friend, family member, or colleague who can help keep you on track. Share your goals with them and ask them to check in with you regularly to see how you’re doing. Knowing that someone else is counting on you can be a powerful motivator.
Finally, one of the best ways to beat procrastination is to reward yourself. When you complete a task, give yourself a small reward. It could be something as simple as taking a few minutes to relax, or it could be something bigger, like treating yourself to a special meal or activity. Rewards can help you stay motivated and give you something to look forward to.
In conclusion, procrastination is a common problem that can be overcome. By breaking tasks into smaller pieces
