You know that moment when you know you’ve got quite a bit of work to get through but somehow, you just can’t seem to get it done? Not because you have anything more important to do, but maybe your mind just wanders somewhere else all the time? Yup, I know that feeling- it’s called procrastination. The thing about it is that it never seems like a huge problem until it’s the last minute and suddenly it seems like all your work has piled up out of nowhere and now it’s a mission to get through it all. The good news is that procrastination isn’t the end of the world, because you can overcome it. Here are a few tips on how you can get your work groove back!
A big part of procrastination is that you start to feel bad for leaving all your work for the last minute- and this feeling bad can also contribute to you not feeling motivated to do what you need to. So the first step is to forgive yourself, because it’s okay. Almost everyone goes through moments like this. You’re not the first, and it’s definitely not the end of the world.
Commit to the task
Next up, you need to make a promise to yourself to do finish what you have to. Making this commitment is important, and you can do this by writing down everything that you need to do, so that you can see how you’re going to split your time up between those tasks.
