How to overcome procrastination
It’s 3:18am and it’s the 12th day of July
This post was inspired while listening to Sia’s song unstoppable. Because while the music played on, I tried to think of anything that’s stopping me and one strongly came to mind.
I have quite a few negative habits and at the top of them all has to be procrastinating.
It’s the second half of 2017 and I strongly believe I must get rid of this habit before the month ends. I am a great girl but no where close to perfect, I have my flaws and my strengths. My goal to reduce my flaws to the nearest minimum.
I PROCRASTINATE A LOT.
Procrastinating wasn’t something I would usually do while growing up and all but when I got into the university and when things like assignments came and we have a few lecturers who are not really stringent.
So most times we prefer excuses to obedience. Simply give him/her reasons why the class needs more time for the assignment and all. Eventually I began to learn how to “push things forward“. I would give myself reasons not to do that thing that needs to be done at that moment. And at the end I usually get into a fix trying to do dying minute fixing.
Procrastinating has landed me in several unpleasant situations and most times eventually raises my stress bar because I would be doing everything possible to meet up.
When I started blogging, I realised that procrastinating has got to go. So if a post idea comes up, I go to work rather than tell myself to chill and do it later. If you noticed, it has turned out really good, I have been more consistent recently. How to overcome procrastination is not a topic that one would tell you what to do. The best way on how to overcome procrastination is to first accept that you are a procrastinator. learn to have some of reminder that will constantly remind you of things you need to do.I realised that i mostly procrastinate when i have distractions.
So i tend to always play cool and calm music to help me stay focused. To fast track things most times i usually promise myself a reward. A reward might be something as simple as a good night rest or as lavish as a spa appointment.
procrastination is a thief of time
I make use of sticky notes using sticky notes apps to set notes to my phone’s homepage. That way i constantly see it.
I am working towards eradicating procrastination and I am glad with the little I have eradicated so far and I am working hard to eradicate every atom of procrastination from my life… (this sounds like a prayer point. Lol)
So there you have it, habits I am trying to get rid of. This post will have an update by the end of this month to tell you all if I achieved my aim of not…
