How to stop procrastination

If the thing you have to do seems unpleasant then realize the fact that not all unpleasant tasks are as bad as we think. So finish those tasks that are unpleasant and give yourself a reward for doing them.

If the task is a very complex one you normally tend to postpone it. So simplify complex tasks. Break a big task into several smaller tasks. You can manage them easily. This way you can finish it easily.

If you face the problem of taking decisions and postponing things because of it then take some time off to consider options and taking decisions. Share your situation and opinions with someone else.

If you are afraid of failure and because of that fear you are postponing things then visualize yourself succeeding in the task and how well you will feel after its success. This makes you feel motivated and you start doing the task.

If lack of interest is making you procrastinate; if you feel lazy in doing the task then give yourself a reward for what you have accomplished. Then you feel motivated and feel like doing more.

If you are an obsessive perfectionist and wasting a lot of time in necessary details then remember the fact that what is average for you is extraordinary for others. So you may well finish your tasks when you feel that you have attained the average quality.

If you are suffering a lack of focus or direction then create a list of what all to be done. Then come up with the priorities. Estimate the timeframe for it. Finish a small task and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment.

If you find that you lack focus and procrastinating things because of it then accomplish a small task and feel the victory of it and start the big tasks.
