It’s procrastination versus productivity.
We will take the latter without thinking twice. Unfortunately, most people are not always successful for so many reasons. It could be due to distractions, time management or simply lack of focus.
We all have done it at some point but we know for sure we would rather make each day a productive one instead of putting off tasks we could accomplish right away.
Here’s how you can focus on being more productive and let go of procrastinating:
Manage your time well
We know this is easier said than done but what matters is that it can be done. Make a list of what’s important and what needs to be done first and focus on them, one by one. By the time your day has ended, you would have accomplished a lot of things and did not have time to procrastinate. Repeat the process the next day.
Start your day early
Starting your day early means starting it right. Come to think of it, whenever I start my day earlier than usual, I get more things done, and I still have plenty of energy left. It must be because I feel that I still have more time to do other things or that I can turn in early, which means I get to sleep longer. How’s that for a reward, right? It also makes you look forward to the next day.
Forget about distractions
Do things that would get you closer to your goals and dreams. You know which things require your focus and what needs to be done. Concentrate. Turn off your phone and don’t check your email every five minutes.
Don’t get overwhelmed
We all tend to overwhelm ourselves when things are not supposed to be overwhelming (although of course, sometimes, things are, but it’s a different story). The best thing you can do is prioritize and see which task you would need to attend to first, then the next one and so on and so forth. This way, you can concentrate and not have your head and attention all over the place. When you don’t know which ones to attack first, you would most likely procrastinate, but now, you can avoid that.
