5 Ways to Stop Procrastinating

What am I waiting for? A question on a napkin with a cup of coffee.

It’s a new year! Here are 5 ways to stop procrastinating:

Do the Worst Thing First

Attack the hardest task when your energy is fresh and you give yourself the strongest chance of success.

Start Your Day Over at 2 p.m.

At 2 p.m. every day, assess how much you’ve accomplished, remind yourself of what’s critical, and alter your plan so you can tackle the most important thing.

Race the Clock

Having trouble even beginning a burdensome project? Try the old trick of setting a timer for 10 minutes. Work in a focused, perhaps even frantic manner for that short stretch, and watch what happens.

Don’t Interrupt Yourself

If you get pulled away from tasks by every ding, whistle, and ring on your digital devices, well, you’re like most of us. But keep in mind that other people aren’t interrupting you; you are interrupting yourself.

Create an Audience

It’s easy to blow things off when your commitment to yourself is the only thing at stake. But make yourself accountable to a friend and suddenly potential embarrassment becomes a powerful motivator.
