First, you gotta understand WHY you are procrastinating. Right now I have about 5 important things that need to get done today but instead I am scrolling through Facebook… So I started to think to myself, “why am I procrastinating, especially when these things are so important?”.
Well, for one thing, because they’re important, they require a bit more from me than usual, that’s hiccup number 1. Secondly, they’re all equally important which means I don’t know which one to start first.
But most of all, I’m not 100% sure how to do any of them and because they’re important, I’m now worried about getting it right…
So then I asked myself, what CAN I do? Like, is there something that I can do, that I know how to do, that will be easy for me to accomplish?
Because I’m willing to bet, succeeding at doing one thing, will give me some focus and confidence to try my hand at one of the 5 important things I need to do.
Because important things take focus and if you’re distracting yourself with Facebook because you’re overwhelmed by the importance and the not knowing how to do it just right, you’re not focused.
So, the quick way to stop procrastinating is to do something you know you CAN do, finish it, pat yourself on the back and then make an attempt on the thing you’ve been procrastinating about 🙂
