How To Wave Bye Bye To Procrastination

Get Over The ‘I’d Rather Do Something Else’ Mindset

Let’s face it. We’d all rather be doing something fun, right? If given a choice between organising paperwork and watching a favourite movie, it’s pretty clear what most people would choose.
One way to overcome this obstacle is to schedule your organising projects for first thing in the morning. Do your project for an hour or so, and be done with it. Once it’s out of the way, your day will be free to do things that you really enjoy.
Another way to combat this mind set, is to make something you love to do, dependent on the completion of your organising project. For instance, don’t allow yourself to have a coffee with a newspaper, until you’ve finished typing the document you promised yourself you’d do today.
