2. Be open to changing your method
This leads us to the second guideline — open-mindedness.
Acknowledging our procrastination is a great first step, but until we open ourselves up to trying new methods, it’s useless.
The advice we get online can be overwhelming, particularly a seven-point list that promises to cure procrastination. If you are feeling overwhelmed, then the key is to take baby steps and start applying only the strategies that you feel will have the greatest impact on your end-result.
This could be a strategy you’ve never tried before, one that you’ve been putting off, or perhaps one you’ve never heard of.
3. Make your current tasks feel more enjoyable
In order to stop procrastinating, we first have to define what procrastination actually is.
In a nutshell, procrastination is when you put off things that you should be focusing on right now, usually in favor of doing something that is more enjoyable or that you’re more comfortable doing.
If the reason why we’re procrastinating is in favor of doing something more comfortable, then we need to transform our procrastinating tasks into a more enjoyable experience.
