There are many people, including myself, that struggle to avoid procrastination. Each time we put things off we feel guilty and upset with ourselves for not accomplishing the ambitious goals we’ve set.
I recently watched a video from Nelson Berry with an excellent 4 step formula to help avoid procrastination. The 4 steps are:
- Determine your best time for getting things done. It’s funny that I’m not a morning person, yet I get most of my best work done early. Find your best time and focus on getting most of your work done at that time.
- Don’t over estimate yourself or under estimate the task. Sometimes we disillusion ourselves which frustrates us, causing us to put the task off.
- Avoid multi-tasking. When we put all of our focus on one task at a time, we are more likely to get it done, and get it done well.
- Get the subconscious to cooperate. When we see success in our minds and repeat positive affirmations to ourselves, our subconscious mind actually guides us to success.
I believe these steps are very helpful in avoiding procrastination and moving closer to acheiving our goals. For more details about these steps, check out the full video here….
