1  comments

Checklist

  • Determine when you procrastinate the most.
  • Figure out why you procrastinate. Know your why.
  • Understand how you can fix it.
  • Consider how your choices are affecting others in your life.
  • Find an accountability partner to help you stay on track.
  • Set non-negotiables each day. These are the things you must do even if you don’t want to.
  • Set realistic hard deadlines for tasks that may take a few days or more to complete.
  • Make a schedule based on your hard deadlines.
  • When considering your schedule, start with the result you want to achieve, and work backwards.
  • Fill the time you set. You want to set just enough time to complete the work. Any extra and you might get sidetracked.
  • Do the hard stuff first so you can enjoy the rest of the process more.
  • If you cannot do the hard stuff first, choose to do the ones that have the most impact on the overall project.
  • Focus on the outcome or reward you will receive when the task is completed.
  • Eliminate distractions by scheduling in down time for the things you usually do when procrastinating (browsing social media, TV, checking email, napping, etc.)
  • Use tools to help you stay focused and on track such as time trackers.
  • Be mindful of your time by using block scheduling and a timer.
  • Reduce physical and mental clutter to reduce distractions.
  • Break big tasks into more manageable chunks.
  • Aim for creating good routines and habits.
  • When you cannot focus, use the time wisely by choosing other tasks that are still productive.
