Here are a few reasons why people procrastinate:
No clear deadline
Inadequate resources (time, money, knowledge or information)
No passion for work
Overwhelmed by the huge task
Failure of fear
Ways to overcome procrastination:
Delete unimportant work: Out of the many things you must do every day, there are certain tasks which are not important enough to warrant your attention. This calls for prioritizing work based on their importance. Therefore, you must delete or do away with work which is not important and concentrate only on important work. If you do this, your life will become simpler and you wont be so tempted to procrastinate.
Delegate: Delegating work is giving work or responsibilities to someone else. Ask yourself if you are really responsible for handling a certain job or activity. If the job or task doesn’t require your attention, it can always be given or handed over to someone else. This also decreases your work load and reduces procrastination.
Act NOW: Whenever you put off things for a later time, you feel anxious about how and when it is going to be accomplished. Therefore, it is best to do easy tasks as early as possible to make sure the feeling of anxiety is wiped off.
Ask for advice: Sometimes, it is very important to just ask advice from a mentor, friend, coach or an expert. They may show you ways of doing work more effectively which will reduce your time and increase productivity. This will help get work done quickly and in turn avoid the need to procrastinate.
Break up tasks: Sometimes, people feel scared to start work because the sheer volume of work seems to be so overwhelming. You will be surprised at how ridiculously simple work can look if you just break or chop up tasks in small parts. It also helps you concentrate on different aspects of the jobs in a better way.
Make clear deadlines: Always set clear deadlines or milestones to get work done by. In-fact, let your close friends or family members know of these deadlines. If you do, they will always hold you accountable if you stray away from your target.
Reward yourself: If you are working hard to become successful, there is no reason why you should not reward yourself. Every time, you reach a milestone in your work, give yourself a little something, maybe a cool new haircut or a pampering at the spa. Hard work should always be rewarded so that you are motivated to do better.
Make yourself distraction free: Make sure you work in a place or an environment which is conducive to getting work done quietly and more effectively. Also make sure you are with people who motivate you rather than distract you from the work you are doing. This will help get work done faster and avoid the need to procrastinate
